Just a day ahead of the launch of Pokémon Legends: Arceus on the Nintendo Switch, the excitement is soaring high. Early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, holding an 86% Metacritic score from 41 reviews at the time of writing. Critics have commended the game for its fresh approaches to traditional series norms, although some have noted concerns over the graphics quality.

With the game’s favorable reception and the inherent hype that accompanies all things Pokémon, Pokémon Legends: Arceus has already claimed the top spot on Amazon’s best-selling video game charts in various countries. Several Amazon stores in the US and UK have already sold out their initial stock, causing delays in smaller retailers due to high order volumes. This success comes as no surprise; Pokémon stands as one of the most lucrative franchises globally, consistently outselling iconic brands like Mickey Mouse and Hello Kitty.

An early leak of a significant portion of the game before its release didn’t deter sales potential; if anything, it boosted anticipation, as the leaked content appeared well received. The future sales performance of Legends: Arceus in comparison to the mainline Pokémon games remains to be seen, but its current trajectory is overwhelmingly positive.
