Zelda: Breath of the Wild needs to pass at least two million in sales
According to Nintendo creative fellow Shigeru Miyamoto, over 100 staff worked on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with over 300 people on the game’s credits who spent over five years on the project.
“The costs [of production] will be recovered by selling in large volumes passing two million sales. A game is a hit in the domestic market if it reaches 300k sales, but we’re targeting worldwide sales.”
