USA: GameStop reveals pre-orders for top 10 video games following E32021

Last week’s E32021 digital event was pretty good given that we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and the majority of developers work from home. Big games have been released on all platforms, but it’s always interesting to see which one has attracted the most gamers. US retail chain GameStop announced the top 10 pre-orders at the end of the event. Keep in mind that the pre-order charts don’t have large Xbox games, probably because most are done with subscription service game passes. But it’s very encouraging to see the Metroid Dread Four Switch No. 1!

1. Metroid Dread – 10/8
2. The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD – 7/16
3. Mario Golf: Super Rush – 6/25
4. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl – 11/19
5. Mario Party Superstars – 10/29
