The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD launched for Switch 45 weeks ago, and it fell out of the various top 10 charts around the world quite some time ago. That’s why it’s so shocking to see where the game landed on the weekly software charts in Australia this week.

Believe it or not, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD managed to best all other games in Australia this week, snagging the #1 spot. That goes for games across all platforms, not just Switch!

As you’ve probably guessed, something must have spurred on the incredible sales jump. It turns out one retailer discounted the game to $34 for a limited time, and plenty of other retailers decided to price match. That deal turned out to be too good for many Switch owners to pass up, leading to the major bump in sales.
