Koei Tecmo recently announced that Hyrule Warriors has shipped one million units worldwide. The majority of these sales come from the US, where Hyrule Warriors sold 190,000 copies in its first week alone. Surprisingly, the game sold at a much slower pace in Japan, with only 100,000 copies being sold in its first month. Up to this point, Hyrule Warriors has shipped 400,000 units in the US and at least 120,000 units in Japan. No sales data is available from Europe at this time.
To commemorate the achievement of shipping one million copies of Hyrule Warriors, Koei Tecmo is offering free wallpapers for your computer! You can get them here. You can even get Facebook covers, tablet covers, and mobile phone wallpapers as well!
With the success of Hyrule Warriors, will we see a sequel in the near future? It is entirely possible, given its success abroad. Hyrule Warriors sure was the surprise hit for Nintendo in 2014!
