Temco Koei is expecting its Wii U exclusive Hyrule Warriors to sell one million units. That would make it the 6th Wii U title to cross the one million mark, according to VGChartz.
"In gaming, this is a first-time collaboration," said Tecmo Koei president Yoichi Erikawa in a report by Nintendo Everything. "As a new entry in the Warriors series, we plan to release the game Hyrule Warriors in collaboration with Nintendo in the summer of this year."
"In addition to our Warriors series fan base, Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda is also a very popular series with a large fan base, and I think it will become a great new market. Because of The Legend of Zelda’s legion of fans overseas, we are aiming to sell more than one million copies worldwide."
As of May 3, the Wii U has sold 6.13 million units at retail, according to VGChartz.
