Zelda: Skyward Sword becomes fastest-selling title in the series

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has sold over 535,000 copies since it was released in North America, making it the fastest-selling game within the series.

The Wii itself also celebrated strong Black Friday sales, with over 500,000 consoles sold during the day and previously.

Such momentum could aid Nintendo in achieving a successful sales season, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime hopes.

“We know that Black Friday and that entire week is a key selling week, and it is important for products like ours to have a jump in momentum, and we were fortunate to see that,” Fils-Aime says. “For us, it really was driven by unique and powerful software and what gives us confidence is that we still have more software to launch in the balance of this holiday period.”
