Majora’s Mask 3D preliminary sales results compared to A Link Between Worlds’

The preliminary sales figures for Majora’s Mask 3D are in! When compared to the sales results from A Link Between Worlds’ first week’s performance, Majora’s Mask 3D held its ground, and then some. The data presented encompasses the first three days the titles were sold in North America and the first two days of sales in Europe. As the graph shows, Majora’s Mask 3D sold approximately 350,000 units in North America and roughly 225,000 units in Europe, easily eclipsing the sales for A Link Between Worlds during that same sales period in both territories.

Despite the fact that Majora’s Mask 3D was so vastly hyped, it is rather surprising that it outsold A Link Between Worlds by such a large margin given the latter was a holiday release and appealed to so many old-time Zelda fans.

Will this have any bearing with regards to how Nintendo will approach Link’s next handheld adventure? Maybe we’ll have yet another remake on our hands.
