Nintendo recently launched Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee on Nintendo Switch, and the reception has been strong. Yesterday we reported that it topped the charts in Japan and led to a massive sales spike for Switch, and today we’ve learned that success extends far beyond Japan. After just a few days on the market, it’s safe to say Let’s Go is a global smash hit.
According to an official
Pokémon Twitter account in Japan, the twin games combined to sell over 3 million copies during their launch weekend. It’s been four days since then, so that number is likely much higher by now. As it turns out, 3 million copies sold in just three days is a new record, making Pokémon: Let’s Go the fastest-selling Switch game to date. Of course, with Smash just around the corner, it’s possible that will be a short-lived record.
