Nintendo did grab quite a lot of attention in their show on 3rd day of E3 2016 with some of their attractive announcements, including the new edition of Legend of Zelda. However, in a recent shareholder meeting, the franchise’s creator Shigeru Miyamoto mentioned that the cost of production for Breath of the Wild will only be recouped if the title sells over 2 million units worldwide.

He has also set an ambitious sell target of 300,000 unit in domestic market.

However, considering the fact that the game has received quit a good amount of exposure, a 2m sell target is something Nintendo can embark upon. Plus this is not the only time the company has set a lofty sells target on game which has gone through an elongated production phase. Final Fantasy XV has been in various stages of development for a decade, and Square Enix has set a lofty sales goal of 10 million units for the upcoming action-RPG title.
