GameStop unveils top 10 pre-orders after E3

Nintendo titles are dominating pre-purchase numbers

Retailer GameStop has revealed its top-selling pre-orders following this year's E3 season.

The top 10 is largely dominated by Nintendo, but is also peppered with fresh instalments of established franchises like Far Cry and Madden.

Newly-announced Metroid Dread is leading the pre-orders chart. Metroid Dread is a revived project that was originally due to release on the DS in 2006, but was cancelled due to technical limitations.

Metroid is followed by The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, which was announced at a Nintendo Direct back in February. Mario Golf Switch is in third place, which is due to release this Friday.

Other titles in the list include Far Cry 6 -- which was initially slated for a February release -- and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which debuted at a Square Enix showcase last week.
