The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has now sold over a million physical copies in Japan, according to the Media Create charts for May 28th to June 3rd.

The Switch launch title sold 6,722 copies during this period, making it good enough for 9th place. It has now sold 1,004,689 copies in Japan since it launched early last year.

Elsewhere, 2D fighter BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle struggled to make an impact on Switch, limping into charts in 17th position with 4,271 copies sold. The PS4 version fared better, hitting 4th place with 11,696. Both of these figures include the Limited Edition version of the game as well as the standard SKU. It was good news for Sony in general, as Dark Souls: Remastered and Detroit: Become Human took first and second places in the chart respectively.

Nintendo can't be too annoyed, however; Splatoon 2Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Kirby: Star Allies all made the top ten.
