Zelda is by far the most popular game at E3, according to social media stats

Nintendo has gone all out at E3 with Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game has lived up to all expectations, and then some (just watch the 40 minute gameplay video to see for yourself).

And judging by social media mentions, the new Zelda game has so far been the most popular — by far. It got twice as many mentions on social media as the next game on the list, EA’s Battlefield 1.

Brandwatch counted over 80,000 social media mentions of the new Zelda yesterday. Nintendo has focused much of its energy on promoting Zelda, but they did showcase a couple other games and they also announced some new Amiibo as well.

But this E3 will be remembered as the one that was all about Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and for good reason. It looks like it’s going to be a hit on the Wii U, and a must-have launch game for the NX.
