It has only been days since the release of Phantom Hourglass for the Nintendo DS over in Japan and some sales numbers are beginning to creep up. GoNintendo has reported that 250,000 copies were sold on the first day alone. Our Ally, LOZ.com found another sales estimate over at Kotaku. These numbers estimate that over 400,000 copies have shipped with 350,000 already sold.
Regardless of which site is more accurate, one thing is clear… The game is selling very well. With the DS the hottest console in Nintendo History, I stand firm on my prediction that Phantom Hourglass will be the highest selling Zelda game of all time. We’ll keep you informed.
