Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are not out yet and have already conquered everyone

2022 will definitely be a year to frame for Nintendo Switch owners. Closing these decidedly incredible 365 days in terms of games will be Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the two new titles in the franchise, which will be decidedly different from the previous iterations. And it is precisely the two Game Freak games that have earned the recent news, since they are not released yet and have already broken a record.

As reported online by Twitter user Pierre485, who monitors video game sales, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have already reached an important milestone How was all this possible? Simple: thanks to pre-orders. The Twitter user's data is actually for a single store in Niigata Prefecture, Japan, but it gives a good idea of ​​how high the hype is for these new games.

At the moment, at the COMG chain (and at only one point of sale), the two new games were booked by over 1.200 people. This data allows the two titles to surpass even the booking record of the previous iterations of the series that appeared on Nintendo Switch. In short, it is a real success for the Japanese giant, which is preparing to launch what will probably be one of the best-selling games on Nintendo Switch, probably second only to Splatoon 3, which in Japan recorded very little results conceivable.

Pokemon S/V also surpassed the first 3 days of sales made by any Pokemon game on Switch with only pre-orders.

14 days before launch :
• Animal Crossing: New Horizons – 434
• Splatoon 3 – 497

As we mentioned at the beginning, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will be the last major release for Nintendo Switch produced directly by the house of Kyoto. The two games will cap off a successful year for the hybrid console, which could seriously retire at this point over the next few months. In fact, it is not excluded that in 2023 the Japanese giant decides to unveil its next platform to the world, perhaps saying goodbye to the current hardware with the sequel to Breath of the Wild, which will debut in May next year.
