Beating Wii sports even... I am liking what I am reading.

Genuinely surprised of this launch projection... and by judging of what I personally played of BotW so far, I'd say it deserves such a success :D

But Wii Sports was free bundle-in game in Europe?

So they sold more Zelda copies on launch than they sold Wiis (+ Wii Sports) on launch. This does go hand in hand with the other fact that they sold more Switches than Wiis at launch. It wouldn't surprise me if Zelda has an attach rate of close to 100% at the moment

Awesome to hear! ^_^
