With the launch of the Nintendo Switch and a new Zelda game it shouldn’t be that surprising that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has topped the Japan sales chart for the week ending on March 5. In just 2 days, Breath of the Wild sold 187,379 copies on Switch and 44,602 copies on Wii U. It’s also worth noting that 5 of the top 7 sold games in Japan release on Switch.
