Pokemon Legends: Arceus sold more than any other Switch titles in its first week, it’s been revealed. Initial sales came in at 140,000 copies. Pokemon Legends: Arceus outdid the last mainline entry in the series, Pokemon Sword and Shield.

We just heard yesterday that Pokemon Legends: Arceus has already sold 6.5 million copies worldwide. In Japan, the game moved over 1.4 million units in its first few days. It also saw the fourth biggest Pokemon launch ever in the UK.

For a quick refresher on Pokemon Legends: Arceus, read the following overview:

Get ready for a new kind of grand, Pokémon adventure in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, a brand-new game from Game Freak that blends action and exploration with the RPG roots of the Pokémon series. Embark on survey missions in the ancient Hisui region. Explore natural expanses to catch wild Pokémon by learning their behavior, sneaking up, and throwing a well-aimed Poké Ball. You can also toss the Poké Ball containing your ally Pokémon near a wild Pokémon to seamlessly enter battle.

Travel to the Hisui region – the Sinnoh of old—and build the region’s first Pokédex

Your adventure takes place in the expansive natural majesty of the Hisui region, where you are tasked with studying Pokémon to complete the region’s first Pokédex. Mount Coronet rises from the center, surrounded on all sides by areas with distinct environments. In this era – long before the events of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games – you can find newly discovered Pokémon like Wyrdeer, an evolution of Stantler, and new regional forms like Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Zorua, and Hisuian Zoroark! Along the way, uncover the mystery surrounding the Mythical Pokémon known as Arceus.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus made it to Switch on January 28, 2022.
