Pokemon Legends: Arceus Total Sales Revealed – 2nd Fastest-Selling Nintendo Switch Game

The Nintendo Switch has had some massive releases over the years, but only one has been a faster seller than Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

It’s been almost a week since the release date of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Nintendo’s biggest first-party title in some time.

Aside from some graphical complaints, it seems that Pokemon Legends is the open-world Pokemon title that fans have always been asking for. And if there was any question as to whether the mainline series will remain open-world, just look at these sales figures for your answer.

It’s no surprise that Pokemon Legends: Arceus already has DLC on the way, according to new reports.

And it seems that a total of 158 new Pokemon will be coming to the game soon!

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Becomes Second Fastest-Selling Switch Game

According to a new article by Famitsu, Pokemon Legends: Arceus surpassed 1.425 million sales within the first 3 days of its release.

This huge figure makes the title the second-best first week for a Nintendo Switch title since the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It’s not too surprising, given how heavily Pokemon Legends: Arceus streams are exploding in popularity online.

For reference, New Horizons hit a massive 1.881 million in its first week. However, we’re yet to hear exactly how many sales Arceus can reach in a full 7 days.

If rumors are true, Mega Evolution could be coming to Pokemon Legends: Arceus very soon. We’re sure this popular feature would attract a lot of returning fans who are on the fence about the game.

But are complaints about Pokemon Legends’ graphics justified? It’s fair to say that the game is no Breath of the Wild, even years after its launch.
