So I guess it's official; BotW is the most popular LoZ. The Switch version smashes the second most popular with two versions combined.

Not that it sold very well o the Wii U, but still.

This isn't a good thing, Majora's Mask should have been the game to sell this many copies since it is objectively the best Zelda game. All MM needs is updated graphics, 60 FPS, and a better combat system.

Unless BoTW 2 brings back alot of the old Zelda mechanics, this series is officially dead to alot of the older fans, just like the Fallout series which turned from an RPG to another mindless shooter game.

Sad, sad day it's almost like people think linear based games with good level design are boring trash, but open world games mindlessly running around and grinding for materials is the future.

Is this measured in Gross Revenues or Units Sold?

Looks like the Minish Cap is the lowest non-remake (original game) in the list.

Units. And yeah, the GBA has surprisingly low software sales for anything not named Pokemon or Mario.
