Metroid Dread

Following all of the news and announcements made during E3 2021 last week, GameStop has revealed the top ten (well, technically eleven) games that generated the most customer pre-orders.

The list has a number of Nintendo titles, including a couple that weren’t actually present at the show. Metroid Dread, which was a brand new announcement, topped the charts. Mario Party Superstars also managed to hold a spot within the top five.

Below are the full results:

GameStop has announced a new poster promotion for The Legend of Zelda. If you spend $30 or more on products based on the series or trade towards a Switch system, it can be yours. This is a double-sided GameStop-exclusive poster.

GameStop doesn’t say when the promotion ends, but it should be valid for at least the next week.

Former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime joined GameStop’s board of directors last year. It appears that he won’t be holding on to that role for very long, however.

According to GameStop’s latest SEC filing, Reggie as well as several others are expected to retire from the board at the retailer’s 2021 Annual Meeting. “The contemplated retirements are not because of a disagreement with us on any matter relating to our operations, policies or practices,” the notice states. The upcoming meeting will take place in June.

Reggie had been fully dedicated to Nintendo from the end of 2003 through the middle of 2019. Despite retiring from the company, he has still been active in many other ways. Aside from his stint with GameStop, Reggie joined the board of directors for the New York Videogame Critics Circle, become a strategic advisor at Rogue Games, and more.
