This game is undertracked. Nintendo official sales put this game at 8.85m combined between wii and gc. We also have official sales that put the gc version at 1.32m sold. So that means the wii version has sold 7.53m units just 0.07m behind OOT N64.

The fact that this is the highest selling 3D Zelda (combined Wii/GCN sales) proves that mainstream gamers wants realistic graphics from this series. I hope Ninty are paying attention to these sales trends.

I don't think TP was sold for 19.99 until 2011 (or early 2012? Can't remember anymore), so that's not really "a few years".

This game sold well and got above 6 million before the Nintendo Select deal, and that's not counting Gamecube sales. This game had its flaws in certain areas (still a great game, though) but the idea of it is what most Zelda fans want to see with the series, I believe.

S.Peelman posted 28/12/2012, 11:23
@ OneTwoThree:
I think the most obvious reason for the GameCube version selling a lot less than Wind Waker is that the Wii version of TP came out before the GameCube version. People wanted to play this game, and weren't willing to wait. If they'd been released at the same time, GameCube version would've been much higher, and this one would've been lower.
That said, you have a point in that earlier=better.

This really shows the difference between releasing a game at the beginning of a console's life and towards the end. On Gamecube Twilight Princess sold way worse than Wind Waker, just as Skyward Sword doesn't stand a chance against Wii's Twilight Princess version.
Another good example is the Mario Party series. 9, while said to be a big improvement, won't sell a third of what 8 managed to sell.

Have to say when you see how well TP sold you can't help but wonder why Nintendo don't just keep pushing the more realistic graphical style (although WW is my favourite). Nearly 8 million between wii and gc and the best selling zelda.

@Roar You're comparing US with Americas. We're probably just about right, or if it's overtracked it's by a negligible amount. And NSMB was bundled.

Also, you do have to factor in Gamecube sales..but who knows what TP's gamecube sales are. I'm sure they're high enough to boost this game past 3 million in the US easily.

Nintendo Powerr, Issue #272 says that Twilight Princess on Wii has sold 2.82 million units in the US as of late August 2011. This game is apparently over-tracked on VGchartz (no surprise). However, it is far from the only game over-tracked on this website. Apparently Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Brothers are over-tracked in the US as well.
