Released just days ago, Tears of the Kingdom has already become the fastest-selling game in the Legend of Zelda franchise. With over 10 million copies sold, it’s on track to become one of the top-selling games on the Nintendo Switch, following in the footsteps of its highly acclaimed predecessor, Breath of the Wild.
