As there are only five days left until the release of Skyward Sword, the second to last pre-order statistic has come in. Since the last update, Skyward Sword has added another 98,708 pre-orders, bringing the total up to 691,562 in North America alone. I can personally see there being anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000+ more preorders happening in the next few days before the final release of Skyward Sword on November 20th.

    Heh, I remember back when The Wind Waker boasting 560,000 pre-orders was considered exceptional, so this certainly bodes well for the Skyward Sword sales-numbers (not to mention that the holiday season should give best Wii game of the year a second wind in December). Good stuff.
