Pokémon Sword Outsells Shield 6:4
Reports from the first three days of sale at GEO (1,200 stores across Japan) have Pokémon Sword outselling Pokémon Shield at a ration of 6:4. The ratio at COMG! (14 stores across Japan) is 5.5:4.5 with 1,444 total sales. The third early indicator in Japan is TSUTAYA who have Sword > Shield, although no numbers to work from. Please note that the final numbers are released by Famitsu at 22:00 JST on Wednesday (although the Pokémon numbers maybe posted earlier) and the above ratio isn’t to be interpreted as an exact science.
