To no one’s surprise, Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee has become the hottest selling Nintendo Switch games around. And that streak is likely to continue to keep going into the holiday season, even with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the horizon.
The Pokemon Company has announced that the combination of the two games managed to clear three million copies sold in just one week’s time, becoming the fastest selling Nintendo Switch games since its launch last year. It even beat out the likes of Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, two of the most popular games for the console.
More than likely, the game will go on to clear at least ten million copies sold, depending on how long its popularity lasts going into 2019. It wouldn’t surprise us if fans kept coming back to it, even after Detective Pikachu opens in theaters in May 2019.
And if you need an idea of just what kind of longevity Pokemon games have on the market, check out the list of best-sellers below. Oh, yeah, the Let’s Go! games are taking off like rockets.
