With only one day left before the debut of Pokémon Legends: Arceus on the Nintendo Switch, excitement is skyrocketing. Early assessments have been highly positive, as reflected by an 86% Metacritic score based on 41 critical evaluations as of now. Reviewers have commended the game’s innovative twists on established series conventions, although there has been consistent criticism regarding the visual presentation.

Thanks to the upbeat initial reception and the immense anticipation that typically surrounds Pokémon releases, Pokémon Legends: Arceus has already secured the top spot on Amazon’s charts for best-selling video games in various nations. Certain Amazon outlets in the United States and United Kingdom have already exhausted their initial stock, leading to delays at smaller retailers due to high demand. The game’s success is hardly surprising; Pokémon is unequivocally the most lucrative franchise globally, consistently outselling iconic figures like Mickey Mouse and Hello Kitty.

Recently, a significant portion of the game was leaked online before its launch. Surprisingly, rather than hindering potential sales, the leaks actually fueled more anticipation, indicating that the content was well received. The ultimate sales figures of Legends: Arceus compared to the mainline games are yet to be seen, but the game has undeniably made a strong entrance.
