Skyward Sword Sells Less Than 320K In Japan During Holidays

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has completely fallen off the top software sales charts in Japan, selling less than 320,000 copies in its debut holiday month.

The Wii game, considered by many as one of Nintendo's biggest releases for the system, has sold considerably less copies than other recent mainline entries for the long-running Legend of Zelda series, such as Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks.

Debuting at the top of Japan's software charts in late November, Skyward Sword saw its sales drop quickly not long afterward, and it failed to break into the top 20 two weeks ago. Holiday shopping hasn't generated enough interest to push the game back in this week, either.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has fared much better in the States, where in just the month of November, it sold around 600,000 copies.
