Lots of positivity and optimism around Pokemon: Let's Go, including leading in Twitch viewership. Initial read of ancillary metrics a bit better than I'd anticipated. All good signs.— Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) November 18, 2018
From a total gaming market outlook perspective, Pokemon: Let's Go is the most important launch of the year. Initial response being as positive as it is, well, it's a bit of a relief to be honest. We'll have to see how sales go through December and into the new year.— Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) November 18, 2018
As NDP analyst Mat Piscatella says above, Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee is the most important launch of the year. This is the Switch game that can break out of the hardcore circle of gaming to reach an expanded audience. It seems the game is off to a good start so far, which is definitely what fans want to hear. I'm sure Nintendo is happy about that as well!
