GameStop has revealed the top ten most sought-after games following E3 2019. The list is based on the number of customer pre-orders made through the retailer.

A few Nintendo titles made the list, including Pokemon Sword/Shield at #2. The full results can be found below.

GameStop is taking pre-orders for the latest round of amiibo. You can reserve Link, Squirtle, Snake, and Ivysaur here.

As a general note, a number of these amiibo have been selling out at retailers. The new Link figure in particular has proven popular so far.

With E3 just over a week away, retailers are almost certainly getting their systems prepped for upcoming announcements. Usually once a conference ends and official reveals are made, stores take pre-orders not too long after.

With that in mind, GameStop seems to have given us a (very) rough idea regarding the number of announcements Switch will be seeing within the next few days – from Nintendo and third-parties. 21 SKUs have been added to the retailer’s internal system without names, meaning they will likely be filled in properly around E3. Most are $60, but there are a few oddities like a mystery $200 listing.


GameStop has revealed a pre-order bonus for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. If you reserve the game, you’ll receive a pin set. This is exclusive to the retailer.

The bonus apparently applies for both the standard version and limited edition. It’s also eligible for online and in-store orders.

Retailers are starting to take pre-orders for the Super Mario Maker 2 + Nintendo Switch Online Bundle. Amazon has it here, and GameStop has it here.

The Super Mario Maker 2 + Nintendo Switch Online Bundle includes a copy of the game and a 12-month service subscription, needed to access the game’s online functionality. The two cost $80 separately, so the package saves you $10.

GameStop is planning an exclusive purchase bonus for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Fans will be given a special poster, shown above. It was illustrated by Marvel artist SKAN. Note that quantities are expected to be extremely limited.

You can pre-order Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order on GameStop’s website here. The game launches on July 19.


GameStop has finally joined other retailers in offering pre-orders for the next wave of Smash Bros. amiibo. Pichu, Isabelle, and Pokemon Trainer are now live on the retailer’s site here. A bundle is also available featuring all three.

Pichu, Isabelle, and Pokemon Trainer release on July 26.

Retailers have started to open pre-orders for God Eater 3, which was announced for Switch earlier today. Amazon has it here and GameStop has it here.

Bandai Namco is planning a special bonus for God Eater 3 pre-orders. By reserving the game, you’ll receive a pair of costumes based on characters from Tales of Vesperia.

God Eater 3 launches for Switch on July 12.

When Bendy and the Ink Machine launched on Switch several months ago, GameStop had the exclusivity with the physical release. In just a few weeks, copies will be more widely available.

Maximum Games announced a partnership with Rooster Teeth Games and Joey Drew Studios today to bring Bendy and the Ink Machine to all major North American retailers. The likes of Amazon and Best Buy should be selling the first-person puzzle horror title starting April 23.

Aside from the current physical version at GameStop, Bendy and the Ink Machine is out now digitally on the Switch eShop.
