Nintendo has yet another reason to celebrate, as they can verify another big hit for Wii U — Hyrule Warriors. Marrying the world of Zelda with the action of Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors franchise has proven to be quite fruitful as both companies announced the joint project has sold over a million units around the world.

The game got off to a strong start, selling 190,000 units in its first month in North America and 100,000 in its first month in Japan. Buzz around the game must have been strong as it obviously retained a great deal of momentum and managed to keep selling throughout the 2014 holidays. Unfortunately, no numbers have been given regarding the game’s performance in Europe, but considering the scope of the game’s success, it might be fair to assume that Europeans probably bought more than a few copies.

However, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo aren’t done with Hyrule Warriors as more DLC remains on the horizon. February 5th will see the launch of Majora’s Mask themed content, including Young Link and Tingle as playable characters.
