Ahead of the arrival of Pokémon Legends: Arceus on the Switch tomorrow, the game has already sold out in certain parts of the world on Amazon.

On both the US and UK Amazon webpages, physical copies of the game are temporarily out of stock. Even digital code sales are performing quite well. The game is currently the best-selling Nintendo Switch title on the website and also tops the charts in both regions as the best-selling video game (across all platforms) right now.

To be fair, anything related to Pokémon sells like hotcakes – and it’s also been a relatively quiet start to the year in terms of blockbuster releases. A lot of other major game releases are scheduled for February or later. Amazon sales of the new Pokémon game stretch to other parts of the world, too – as highlighted by Twitter user @So_Ethereal:

Admittedly, it might be a bit of an uphill battle for Pokémon Legends: Arceus to match the sales of certain other Pokémon releases on Switch, as this is a single game, rather than two separate versions.

Over the past few weeks, Legends has also been on the receiving end of leaks and datamines. Fortunately, this does not seem to have harmed the launch of the title, and the reviews have been quite positive.
