Before the appearance of Pokémon Legend: Arceus on Switch tomorrow, the game is already sold out in some parts of the world on Amazon.
On US and UK Amazon sites, physical copies of the game are temporarily out of stock. Even the digital token sale is doing quite well. The game is currently the best-selling Nintendo Switch game on the site, and also tops the charts in both regions as the best-selling video game (on all platforms) right now.
To be fair, anything Pokémon-related is selling like hotcakes – and it’s also been a relatively quiet start to the year in terms of blockbuster releases. Lots of other major game releases are scheduled for February or later. Sales of Amazon’s new Pokémon game also span other regions of the world – as highlighted by Twitter users @So_Ethereal:
While sales like this are somewhat to be expected for such a unique entry in the series, it’s still great to see strong support for the franchise 25 years later. Having said this, it can be an uphill battle for Pokémon Legends: Arceus to match the sales of several other Pokémon releases on Switch, as it’s a single game rather than a single release. operating two versions.
In the past few weeks, the game has also ended receiving Leaks and data. Fortunately, this doesn’t seem to affect the title’s launch and Pretty positive reviews. Have you pre-ordered a copy of Pokémon Legends: Arceus yet? Leave a comment below.
