by nintendoiso on October 17, 2012

Overview

There are no games in the top 20 to be in its final week before launch. As a reminder the Pro data is back up, which means that I am taking requests again for games outside the top 20.

The top five games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week, and the top nine has 100,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week. Five games added 20,000 or more, the same as last week and eight added 10,000 or more, up from seven last week.
