GameStop

Each year when E3 rolls around, it’s accompanied by increased activity at retailers like GameStop. Switch in particular put in work there.

GameStop VP of merchandising Eric Bright mentioned to GamesIndustry that Switch sales doubled during E3 week. Titles like Smash Bros. Ultimate were also highly pre-ordered.

Retailers have started to restock the NES Classic Edition, which is making its way back to stores today. GameStop currently has it up here, including the standalone controller. It’s unclear how much stock the retailer will have available. 

Retailers are gearing up for the NES Classic Edition’s restock on June 29. GameStop has come forward with a few details on how it will be handling things.

GameStop will have “at least 10 units per store,” with some locations possibly having a larger stock. Quantities will be limited and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Pre-orders for Starlink: Battle for Atlas are starting to go live. You can reserve it on Best Buy and GameStop.

GameStop reported its latest financial results last week for Q1 2018. The company saw decreases across the board compared to the same period last year, which was largely boosted by Switch’s launch at the time.

There was absolutely no way GameStop could replicate the same sales with Switch this year simply due to the console launching in 2017. However, that doesn’t mean the retailer isn’t seeing a favorable performance with the console.

GameStop is offering a new pre-order bonus for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. If you reserve the game, you’ll be given a Micro Blocks Crash Figurine – pictured above. It will be provided on release day.

The bonus is available while supplies last, and is eligible for online and in-store orders. You can pre-order here.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy launches June 29.
