Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Is Already The Third Best-Selling Game On Amazon In 2021
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD has proven to be a major hit for Nintendo despite being a rather old game that was recently remastered and sold for full price.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD was released on July 16, 2021. It has quickly climbed the charts on Amazon USA to become the third best-selling Nintendo Switch game and it achieved this feat in just 10 days. It is now behind Animal Crossing New Horizons and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. It is entirely possible that the sales of Skyward Sword HD can eclipse either of these two games.
The Amazon yearly sales chart is based on the total number of copies sold since the start of the year so far. It is not the best-sellers chart, which is usually updated hourly so there is a lot of fluctuation in that list.
Here are the top 10 best-selling games on Amazon for the year 2021 so far.
- Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
- Minecraft Java Edition (PC)
- Animal Crossing New Horizons
- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
- Ring Fit Adventure
- New Pokémon Snap
- Just Dance 2021
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Amazon is obviously not a solid indicator for the overall sales of the game, but even then, it shows how much software is moving on the Nintendo Switch. The evergreen life of all of this software like Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate proves that Nintendo has a place and legacy in the industry that is envious to other publishers.
The Legend of Zelda brand is also at its peak these days. Breath of the Wild launched back in 2017 and has continued to move copies. It is still charting in the top-sellers proving that there is no shortage of new and returning fans for the series.
