Video Game News, Reviews and Reflection! New Articles Released Randomly Every Week!
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.
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?
