It seems that Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the best selling title in the musou genre of all time. 

Japanese publisher Koei Tecmo has released its third-quarter earnings (via Resetera). In the report, it was revealed that by the end of December of last year, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity had sold over 3.5 million copies. The game had been released last November. According to the report, this is the highest total number of units shipped for a single title in the musou series. 

Koei Tecmo saw growth during its third-quarter. According to the report, net sales of games had increased by 64.7% when compared to last year. They stated that sales of packaged games and revenues from the operations of mobile games grew substantially. It was revealed that Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV sold 100,000 units in Japan and Asia, while Atelier Ryza 2 sold 220,000 units. Finally, it was revealed that Nioh 2 has now shipped 1.4 million units worldwide. 

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is one of the latest titles in the musou genre. The game takes place 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game allows players to see what happened during the Calamity, and how the world came to be by the time that Breath of the Wild begins. Gamers are able to take control of Link and the other Champions of Hyrule as they take on hordes of enemies. Players will have access to powerful weapons and magical runes that they can use to take on their foes as they vanquish armies and battle formidable monsters. Gamers can have a friend join them as they take on Calamity Ganon and battle for the fate of Hyrule. 

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
