Hyrule Warriors Sells Over 1 Million Copies

Hyrule WarriorsThe Wii U has another hit on its hands.

Hyrule Warriors, an effort from both Nintendo and Koei Tecmo, has hit the Player’s Choice milestone of over one million units today. The game, which released in Japan on August 14, 2014 and came to North America on September 26, 2014, is a spin-off of the Legend of Zelda series and features Dynasty Warriors-style gameplay.

To celebrate, Koei Tecmo has released a number of Hyrule Warriors wallpapers available for download from their website.

HW Gameplay
While the game is certainly slated for a Greatest Hits release, its creators aren’t done yet. Releasing February 5th will be Majora’s Mask Pack, which will introduce Tingle and Young Link to the game and add a new Adventure Mode map and new costumes.

While certainly good for Nintendo’s Wii U, these numbers are nowhere near what the company needs for this console generation, as Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s Playstation 4 are still the top two competitors in this generation of home consoles.

Maybe this is just the beginning of their competitive push?

    Nintendo doesn’t need to win any sort of competition with the other consoles, it doesn’t DO what the other consoles do. They can have their shooters and racers and massive western RPGS and Nintendo can stay where they are at their best.

      A great point there. What I worry about is that console sales will be the way that Nintendo decides whether to continue as a console maker. It was bad enough that Sega met that fate, but Nintendo games on non-Nintendo consoles would be a dagger to the heart of my childhood.

        Sega screwed over other developers and didn’t ever really get a grip of how to craft their consoles, especially with the Dreamcast being such a fantastic mess before it was even released.

        Nintendo has money to sit on for many years without ever doing anything, yet they are selling amiibo like hot cakes and the 3DS is a powerhouse. The Wii U is turning into a pretty sweet console now as well, they aren’t going anywhere as long as they still releasing great quality products.
