According to Nintendo's sales data for the first quarter of 2023,
Zelda has rapidly climbed the all-time Switch charts to become the ninth best-selling game, contributing to record profits.
In 2023, Nintendo has reported a profit increase of 52% compared to the previous year.
This is largely due to the fact that its Super Mario Bros film is the surprisingly highest-grossing film of 2023, garnering over $1.3 billion.
In addition, Zelda, which first appeared on the gaming scene in 1986, has once again proved indispensable to the developer.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the latest installment in the series, was released in May and has sold an impressive 18.51 million copies worldwide.
The game was an instant hit after selling over 10 million copies within three days.
It was released as a direct sequel to the immensely popular game Breath of the Wild, which has sold 30.65 million copies to date.
Netflix's decision to cancel a fan favorite series has many people downhearted.
