The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Tops The Charts At Number 1 In Japan

                                                                                          3 Times The Fun

With the release of The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes in Japan last week, the weekly sales for the best titles in Japan are now in, with our green hero topping the charts with the newest release. Triforce Heroes sold 54,394 (physical copies), as mentioned previously, was the best selling title in the country, outselling the second title by just above 20,000 unitis.

Although it sold over 50,000 in its first week in Japan, it’s a lot less than how Zelda games normally fair. For comparisons sake, A Link Between Worlds sold much better than Trifoce Heroes, with sales rather lackluster. Of course the game still has time to get some healthy sales through the rest of the year and into early next year, it is disappointing to see the game not perform well in the market.

Now let’s check out the rest of the sales in Japan. A lot of 3DS title topped the chart, with Super Mario Maker still hanging in there since last month. Check out the full chart below.
