I tried the demo. Is the final game’s framerate as headache inducing as in the demo? Cause I don’t remember Hyrule Warrior on Wii U having it this bad, and I enjoyed it. This one has improved gameplay over it, but that framerate makes me hesitate...

Did it sell faster than BOTW's launch?? Cause ik BOTW was launched with the Switch so I'm not sure if BOTW blew up in sales like this since the Switch was first starting. But this is amazing for a spin-off Zelda game to sell 3M in a few days and I didn't expect it. Those launch sales figures are comparable to some of the biggest Switch games.

It certainly shipped faster than BotW. We know that BotW had shipped 2.76 mil after about a month.

Impressive! Keep in mind that this is shipped to retailers though. The sold through numbers could be a lot lower.

Koei tecmo themselves published it . Companies only do that when the sale number are really close to shipped ones

Actually Nintendo's publishing it (except Japan). They might've overestimated demand somewhat since it's a Zelda game.

According to the Wikipedia page, Koei Tecmo is only publishing it in Japan and Nintendo's publishing it everywhere else.

Oh sorry I misunderstood you. It's likely the sales numbers are close to the shipped ones but it's hard to know for sure.
