Although early reports suggested otherwise, Hyrule Warriors is enjoying some financial success. During the publisher’s latest financial earnings Q&A, Koei Tecmo announced that the game’s sales in Japan have met expectations.
Overseas, meanwhile, the game’s sales surpassed expectations, though the publisher couldn’t say for sure whether Hyrule Warriors reached the 500,000 goal.
Regardless, this is terrific news, especially for a game with a relatively niche audience. Hopefully, this’ll lead to — fingers crossed — a sequel and more Zelda spinoffs.
