New Pokemon Snap

New Pokémon Snap has had a pretty solid start to life on Nintendo Switch, and the impressive sales stats just keep on coming.

According to new NPD Group data, shared online by the company's executive director, Mat Piscatella, the game's US launch sales "more than doubled" those of the original game which launched on Nintendo 64 back in the summer of 1999. When you consider just how many Switch consoles have been sold compared to the number of N64s that were in homes back then, it's hardly all that surprising, but it's a positive sign for the sub-series nonetheless.

The game also managed to top both the UK and Japanese physical charts in its debut week on sale, and even reached third spot in Europe's most downloaded games of April, despite only launching on the very last day of the month.
