Skyward Sword Has Become The Fastest-Selling Zelda Of All Time

According to Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is now the fastest-selling Zelda title of all time. The game launched on November 20th, and since then it’s sold 535,000 copies in North America alone. Combine that with the other sales from around the world and, at fifty bucks a piece, you’ve got quite a lot earned in sales.

Over this past holiday weekend over 500,000 Wii systems were sold (potentially in efforts just to play this game) on Black Friday. With both the game and systems selling like this, Nintendo is set to reach their system goal for the year. It’s easy to assume that Skyward Sword is the driving force behind the system push, and it’s for good reason.

So far, players seem to really be enjoying the new Zelda title. With a new storyline, integrated Wii motion controls, and some new looks at old favorites, Skyward Sword is quickly becoming a must-have title for the Wii. If you’ve gotten the chance to play Skyward Sword, what have you found the most interesting about it?
