NPD video game industry analyst Mat Piscatella yesterday shared the top five best-selling Legend of Zelda titles of all-time within the US. Unsurprisingly, Breath of the Wild for the Switch has taken out the top spot. According to Piscatella, this happened "some time ago" and he's not really sure how he missed such a significant milestone.
Twilight Princess for Wii was in second place and this was followed by the Nintendo 64 versions of Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask in third and fourth. In fifth place was Link’s Crossbow Training from the Wii generation. We’re guessing the last game on this list owes a lot to the plastic zapper peripheral it was bundled with as well as its affordable pricing.
Mat Piscatella: Yes, Link's Crossbow Training was a strong seller.
While no exact sales figures were revealed, Piscatella noted the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild wouldn’t even “crack the top 10” by itself.
