Nintendo has two heavy hitters due out in the coming weeks and those are the latest Pokemon game Pokemon, Let’s Go! Pikachu and Eevee and of course, Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has told The Verge that pre-sale trends for both games are the best the company has ever seen on the Nintendo Switch which bodes well for their success.
According to Fils-Aimé, “the pre-sale trends for both of these titles are tracking to the best we’ve ever seen on Nintendo Switch. The consumer engagement through all of our digital activity has been exceptionally strong.” Early reviews of Pokemon: Let’s Go ahead of release are positive, too, which bodes well for Nintendo, especially given that the Pokémon title was likely the riskier sell to fans. It’s both the first real console Pokémon game and one that is radically different from more traditional games in the series.
