Ocarina of Time 3D Sells One Million Units in United States

DestinyJuly 18th, 2012 by Destiny

Ocarina of Time 3D has officially joined the one million units sold club. Along with Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 it becomes the third game to sell this much in the United States. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that this amazing game has already sold one million units; we can only wait to see how much it will sell in the long run.

Check out the jump for more insight!


The Legends of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has become the third Nintendo 3DS title to sell more than one million units in the United States.
By achieving this new milestone, The Legends of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D joins the one million member club, joining Super Mario 3D Land (2.1 million units sold life to date) and Mario Kart 7 (1.75 million units sold life to date).

These numbers come via the NPD Group which tracks video game sales within the United States. The NPD also reported that two of the top five and nine of the top 25 best-selling titles play on Nintendo platforms.
Looking forward, the 3DS looks to improve upon software sales with the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 on August 19, and a holiday lineup that sees the Luigi’s Mansion and Paper Mario franchises make their handheld debuts.

The release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 will coincide with the launch of a brand new 3DS XL system which boasts larger screens and a better battery life. The current 3DS has sold over 5 million units in the United States alone.

So what do you think? Any predictions for how much more it will sell? Tell us in the comments!

    Ocarina of time Deserves 1 million dollars!

    • zeldadude

      NO! The game sold 1 million copies, and each game costs around $35, so that’s well over 1 million dollars lol

  • diabloaura

    Of course Super Mario 3DLand sold so much. Everyone who bought a 3DS got Mario with it.

    • Andrew

      Unless, of course, you got Ocarina of Time with your’s and not Mario ^_^

  • shiba inu lover

    2 think i was 1 of the 1 million people 2 buy it!!! YAY!!! :3

  • Miles Edgeworth

    They kept referring to it as Legends instead of Legend. Other than that, great accomplishment.

    Good job, Ocarina of Time.

  • littlemissgleek

    That certainly wouldn’t be the case in Australia since Ocarina of time 3d was released way earlier than either of the mario games. So maybe it’s coming first here, that would be cool :D
    But either way, that’s a great accomplishment, and no surprise at that, a truly brilliant game

    • penil

            in that case, check out my friend’s channel, H37I. he said he was gonna put some covers of zelda. i listened to his cover of lost woods and i liked it. it started off as a cover of the original and then gradually it turns into a rock/metal-ish type of cover without a guitar…

            i’m just a fan of his work, i kinda know him personally. matter of fact, he’s the reason why i even have this username.

    • http://twitter.com/PoePrincessMara Poe Princess Mara

      I’d actually be extremely devastated if it wasn’t over 9000 in this case.

      • itsameluigi1290

        Ick, tell me about it.
        There’s no meme for UNDER 9000!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jahchild101 Seth Taylor Moore

    No predictions, but maybe this will be incentive for Majora’s Mask 3D to be made!

  • baileygirl99

    I never doubted the game! Maybe now, they will consider make the MM3D!!!!

  • ZeldaFan

    if LOZ:oot gonna be released again, i hope it an enhanced port, heck they should add a new place or updated visited temple that can be accessed by the other form liking have child link visit shadow temple or adult link with dogodo(sp?) cavern, to find an optional boss, maybe redesign dungeon with can might add new items. I would like icing on cake like how lttp did it on gba port, (too bad that version isn’t VC) owe well. Who’s with me, i want something new from a very great game.

    But OOT is still a great game.

  • Link5967

    They need to release all the old school zelda games on 3ds eshop, like alttp, oracle games, minish cap, and if I want to play the complete zelda series Zelda 2. My least favorite was Zelda 2 because it messed with the gameplay of Zelda series super badly! I don’t like side scrollers as much as games with an overworld you can explore.

    • zeldotron

      that would be nice, but i dont think nintendo wants to make the legend of zelda, a “final fantasy” like franchise, spamming their old games in every new console possible..

      • Link5967

        Well, it would help people who can’t play some of the original games. I would like it better on 3DS myself

  • http://www.facebook.com/nikko.martinez.315 Nikko Martinez

    they should make a new zelda game that lets you play with other people online

  • radioactivehylian

    That took a while… it’s probably because it’s a remake and not a new hame like SML 3D and MK7. Anyways, it’s still awesome.

    Zelda only seems to sell well on Home Consoles.

  • Noone

    Don’t get your hopes up. Most people never heard of Majora’s Mask.

    • itsameluigi1290

      Hey man, if Kim Kardashian has heard of it, EVERYONE has!

  • Sunblaze24

    Nintendo doesn’t include bundle sales with their sales information, so both OoT and Super Mario 3D Land have sold more than the figures given here. Not a HUGE amount more, but enough to make a difference. OoT sold 1 million in the US a while ago if you count bundles.

    The last report of of OoT’s sales (and Super Mario 3D Land) from Nintendo said it sold 2.49 million worldwide, and that was back in January. Source here:

    It only just sold one million units? I’m not surprised if it’s because it’s a remake, but this is Ocarina of Time we’re talking about.
