Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Has Sold Over 3.5 Million Copies
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has become Koei Tecmo’s bestselling Musou (aka Warriors) game of all time, shipping over 3.5 million units as of Dec. 31, 2020. As noted by analyst Daniel Ahmad, Age of Calamity has outsold Dynasty Warriors 4, which currently sits at around 2.2 million lifetime units sold. Age of Calamity takes place 100 year prior to the events of Breath of the Wild and borrows many elements from it.
Global shipments for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity were 3.5 million as of Dec 31, 2020.
This makes it the highest selling Musou game of all time.

$1,800 Resident Evil Village Collector’s Edition Is Available to Preorder in Japan
The ultimate Resident Evil Village Collector’s Edition (or “Z Version,” as it’s also called) can be yours for a measly… $1,800. Yep, this Collector’s Edition is exclusive to Japan and comes with a Chris Redfield statue, a fancy box, and a map — but also includes a replica of Chris’ coat, which Capcom is calling “Buttonless Chester coat Chris Redfield Ver.” Is a coat (with no buttons, at that) worth $1,800 to you? You can be the judge of that.
