Game Overview

The Legend of Zelda (2017) is an action/adventure game currently being developed by Nintendo EAD which is due to be published by Nintendo exclusively for the Wii U.

The Legend of Zelda (2017) is the working title for the upcoming eighteenth mainline entry in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series. It is set to feature high definition visuals that incorporate cel-shading, and a large open-world that offers greater freedom than past titles.

GOD legs for the franchise at least in
the US
may get to the million in Japan
(with digital and Wii U)

This game is severely undertracked while
Horizon is a bit overtracked

No way could digital account for that.
This has consistently been one of the
lower performing games on the Eshop,
probably because it's big. It's
usually between 8-12. This has to be
just very undertracked at least by a few
curl-6 (on 21 August 2017)
So a difference of 720k between VGC
numbers and Nintendo's numbers as of
end of June/start July. Could digital +
shipped account for all that, or is
there some undertracking going on as

Despite it having over 3 million in
sales on the Switch, I would still like
to see Europe and Japan give it over a
million each.
