Koei Tecmo reveals Hyrule Warriors exceeded expectations in the West


Today several Japanese companies released their Q2 earnings reports alongside Nintendo. Koei Tecmo released its financial statement to investors and offered a Q&A session, in which one investor inquired as to how well Hyrule Warriors performed versus their expectations for the game. Koei Tecmo couldn’t answer the question outright with sales numbers since Nintendo is responsible for overseas distribution, but the executive did reveal that Japanese sales are in line with expectations and overseas sales exceeded what the company expected.

The executive went on to state that the company expects higher sales outside of Japan due to more shipments coming in Q3 and Q4, so it looks like Hyrule Warriors performed well in both parent companies eyes.
