The prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the hack-and-slasher Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, has surpassed three million units sold both digitally and physically worldwide.

According to Japanese magazine Famitsu (translated by Gematsu), the sales milestone is a new record for a single title in the Musou franchise, a series of slash-em-ups by Koei Tecmo and Omega Force. Despite that, it's not yet the all-time best-selling game in the franchise, with entries like One Piece: Pirate Warriors having sold more units over its lifespan. At any rate, a demo for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is still available to download for free.

In other Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity news, Nintendo dropped a new update that resolves a handful of bugs and adds a Spanish dialogue option to the game.

Reviews for Age of Calamity have been largely positive since its launch, with most critics recommending it despite the lacking story. We scored the game a 6/10 in our Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity review, with critic Suriel Vazquez saying, "It's strange to think of a bungled story leaving me so lukewarm on a Zelda game, even if it is a spin-off. But paying off its premise is the burden a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is tasked with. "
