It’s no secret that Hyrule Warriors has had an interesting journey, beginning with a sudden reveal last year that left many surprised at the collaboration between Nintendo and Koei Tecmo. Between massive amounts of gameplay shown since E3, various game modes, and a substantial amount of DLC on the way, quite a lot of buzz was built around the title. Last week, UK gamers had the chance to pick up the title, and it turns out it did very well.

The Wii U title entered into the UK charts at number three, only behind Destiny and Disney Infinity 2.0; Hyrule Warriors managed to knock Watch Dogs out of the number three position it had held onto for some time. It’s great to see the latest in the Zelda franchise do well in not only Japan, but also in the UK, pushing both hardware and software sales.

Hyrule Warriors will release this Friday in North America, so it will be interesting to see if the good sales will follow further to the West. Make sure to pick up your copy today, if you haven’t already!

    I really like this game, have been playing it for a while though and I’m starting to enjoy the “Dynasty Warriors experience”. Although I do feel as if the majority of the game is still too easy on Hard Mode, hopefully there’s a harder mode to unlock after one play-through.

      There is a harder mode which will be unlocked once you have finished the story.

        That’s great, it’s a shame that it’s not available from the beginning.
