REPORT - Zelda: Link's Awakening number 1 in UK charts, fastest-selling Switch game this year

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on Nintendo Switch is No.1 in the UK Boxed Charts.

Link's Awakening is the latest Zelda remake from independent developer Grezzo. The company previously created the 3D remakes of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask for 3DS. Link's Awakening is Grezzo's biggest Zelda launch in the UK yet, surpassing the record set by Ocarina of Time 3D by 27%.

It's actually only the third time Zelda has been No.1 in the UK charts. The last time was way back in 2003 with the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker on Nintendo GameCube. Before then, Ocarina of Time was No.1 on N64 back in 1998 just before Christmas. It followed Nintendo air-lifting copies of the game to stores after it sold out in its first week.

It's the fastest-selling Switch game released this year, surpassing the record set by Super Mario Maker 2.
