Zelda Link’s Awakening is Europe’s fastest-selling Switch game of 2019
Ahead of the likes of Mario Maker 2 and Astral Chain
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is the fastest-selling Switch game of 2019 in Europe.
That’s according to a tweet from Nintendo of Europe, which also highlights the ‘Accolades’ trailer at the top of this page.
Link’s Awakening released on September 20 alongside the Switch Lite console.
While Nintendo doesn’t go into specifics about the fastest-selling claim, Link’s Awakening would appear to have outperformed the debuts of other Switch games released in 2019 such as Super Mario Maker 2, Astral Chain and Fire Emblem Heroes.
Upcoming Switch software releases planned for 2019 include Luigi’s Mansion 3 on October 31 and Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield on November 15.
VGC’s Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening review called the game “a charming reimagining of a classic 2D Zelda adventure, with gameplay that can’t quite match its striking presentation.”
