This is according to GameStop’s COO Tony Bartel who spoke to investors where he talked about the game’s success. According to Bartel, “The demand is incredibly strong for this. As soon as we get it into our stores, it’s out within hours. So we anticipate we’re going to be chasing supply this entire year. The other thing is, every game that’s out there, to have over a five and a half attach rate to this, signifies that a lot of people are finding this a great platform and they’re picking up any games that they can. I mean, we have almost a one-to-one attach of Zelda.”
For those wondering what an attach rate means, basically in this case what this means is that for every Nintendo Switch sold, it is almost a guarantee that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will also be bought. However like we said there aren’t that many games for the Switch at the moment so Breath of the Wild does make sense, but given the rave reviews, we guess it would have succeeded regardless of when it would have launched.
