Nintendo Switch sales double week post E3

Although Nintendo didn’t have the best of performances at this year’s E3 according to their dropping share numbers it seems fans are more excited than ever for the Switch.

The showing for the Switch this year at E3 was relatively weak with many fans concerned with lack of exclusives and new games for the platform.

Vice President at Gamestop, Eric Bright, talking in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz revealed that sales of Nintendo’s console doubled in the week after E3. Bright wasn’t shy to praise Nintendo and claimed that games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokemon Go were some of the most pre-ordered games after E3.

Nintendo and Smash were the most talked about topics this E3 so that’s certainly an indicator that fans are hyped.

Nothing beats Nintendo’s overall announcements,

Super Smash Bros is jumping right up to the top of the [pre-order] list. We’re also seeing great reaction from Pokémon Let’s Go, both SKUs, and then of course people are trying to get their hands on the Pokéball [controller] as well… Nintendo fans are definitely reacting
