Legends Pokémon: Arceus has sold 138,000 physical copies in Spain during its debut, becoming the most popular title of the week. According to the analysis performed by Rubén Market for Vandal, the title of Game Freak is responsible for 62.6% of the total physical sales between January 24 and 30, 2022, surpassing other releases as Uncharted: Lake collection of thieves that has barely reached the 1500 units sold. These 138,000 copies make legends Pokémon: Arceus the best premiere of the franchise in Switch, surpassing the 118,000 units sold in physical during its first week of bright diamond and pearl, and the 123,500 Pokémon sword and shield.
Sales outside our country also beat records. Just a few days ago we knew that Arceus had become Japan in the second best launch in SWITCH in history only behind Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Worldwide, and adding physical and digital copies, the title has exceeded 6.5 million units sold, half a million more than the figure that marked in its debut Pokémon sword and shield, becoming the title of the franchise that faster It has been sold in Switch.
Legends Pokémon: Arceus is a refreshing reinvention of the well-known formula that, however, does not become the forceful that many expected. In our analysis we highlight both the absorbent and fun of the proposal as its lazy design in according to what areas:
Pokémon legends: Arceus moves between freshness and laziness. Between the brightness of his new ideas and the conservative of his implementation. What should have been a declaration of intentions, a call of attention to all those who believed that the saga had nothing to contribute, is again a promise that the great Pokémon is still to come. But what a promise. Arceus does not clear all our doubts, nor clarifies none about the future of the franchise, but it is fun and, sometimes, exciting. As absorbent as vacuo, as simple as charming. It is not the great Pokémon but it is the one that is closer. The one who convinces me most that it will be worth waiting.
