How Did The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Do In Its First Month?


Last month saw the release of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D in the U.S. While we reported earlier that the game debuted at #5 on the top-ten software sales chart for the month, Nintendo just sent out a more precise evaluation.


Ocarina of Time 3D released on June 19th. This gave it 11 days of sales for recording purposes before the end of the month. In that period, the game sold “over” 283,000 copies. The Nintendo 3DS itself sold 143,000 units in June.
