Horizon Zero Dawn Outsells Breath of the Wild in the UK
Bear in mind that Breath of the Wild has only been out since the 3rd before celebrating a victory in the Console Wars.
Perhaps unsurprisingly considering it only came out on March 3rd, Breath of the Wild has been beaten to the top of the sales charts in the UK by Horizon Zero Dawn for the week ending March 4th, according to Chart-Track.
Over 80% of the sales for the latest Zelda game came on the Nintendo Switch with the game also available on the Wii U. Other Switch launch titles pop up in the top ten with 1-2-Switch in fourth and Super Bomberman R at seventh.
