Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is Nintendo's second-biggest UK launch in terms of revenue
Damn you, Wii Fit!
We’re just a handful of days into the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and the game has already racked up a handful of retail accolades. Now we can add another very notable achievement to that list.
The GfK in the UK, which reports retail sales info, has confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is now the second-biggest launch for Nintendo in the UK in terms of revenue. Can you guess what game managed to outdo Tears of the Kingdom at launch in terms of money made?
Give yourself a pat on the back if you guessed Wii Fit! It’s easy to see why Wii Fit brought in more cash at launch, as the bundle was pricier than Tears of the Kingdom, even with that game seeing a higher price than any other standalone software release from Nintendo.
In terms of units sold in the UK, Tears of the Kingdom comes in behind Wii Fit and combined sales of Pokémon games, specifically Sun and Moon, and Scarlet and Violet.
