New Pokémon Snap is the bet in the form of a remake that debuted last Friday in Switch and now crowned like him best seller in UK. With 4 times more in sales than the original, 9th during the month of September 2000, it was conditioned by a console like N64 which sold very poorly in the UK (1.5 million vs. 5.4 PlayStation).
Now Switch is significantly more successful than N64, but comparing with other spin-offs of Pokemon it has been 2.5 times higher. For example, in front of the premiere of Mysterious World: Rescue Team DX, released in March 2020. Thus, New Pokémon Snap marks the third major premiere of the year in Switch, behind Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and Monster Hunter Rise.
This photographic premiere was comfortable before the 2nd on the list, Returnal, another exclusive premiere only to PS5. Sony’s roguelike is the first major IP exclusive as such since the console’s launch, with solid reviews, albeit in somewhat weaker sales than other AAA PlayStation exclusives; although it has its “buts”. PlayStation 5 still suffers from stock, the price is high (€ 80), competes with the weekly release that is now Resident Evil Village and is a niche genre.
