Even as a spin-off title, Hyrule Warriors was a gamble for Nintendo. The mythology of Zelda combined with the frenetic, grand-scale action of Dynasty Warriors? Most fans would’ve scratched their heads at the idea a couple of years ago.
Fortunately, though, that gamble looks to have paid off. Not only have most fans responded well to the game, but it has also crossed the one-million-units-shipped threshold.
Although this isn’t equivalent to the number of units sold, this is a sign of the game’s financial success. Suddenly, the prospect of Hyrule Warriors 2 being a thing sounds more likely.
Koei Tecmo even released a set of wallpapers to celebrate this milestone. Check ‘em out after the jump!
