Game Freak’s catch ‘em all RPGs Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee have sold over three million copies on the Nintendo Switch in its first week.
The title is doing particularly well in Japan where it has topped the charts after selling 664,198 copies in three days.
The games' popularity also led Switch hardware sales to triple in Japan, with the system shifting 180,585 units between November 12th to 18th. The week prior it sold 53,385 units.
Announced back in May of this year, Pokemon Let's Go ties into Niantic’s location-based augmented reality game Pokemon Go, with pokemon tradable between the two.
Pokemon Let's Go also borrows some of the mobile title's mechanics, such as catching pokemon through capture rather than battling.
While the game is selling well and has gone down well with fans and critics, some fans aren’t happy and have resorted to review-bombing the title.
