Famitsu has posted the sales data for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch in the Japanese market. Link’s brand new open world adventure sold 193,000 units at retail and we have to wait and see the digital sales data for the game, since Famitsu focuses only on retail sales.

When Hektor isn’t playing something on his video game consoles, he probably listens to his favorite music. He prefers to spend his money on classic games and rare music albums instead of spending it on alcohol and strippers. If his wallet wants a break from this expensive hobby, he watches his favorite two soccer teams on TV. He thinks that Zelda Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasy VII and Half-Life 2 are the greatest games of ALL time.
