Pokemon X And Y Sell 4 Million Copies In Two Days
PokÃ©mon XÂ andÂ PokÃ©mon Y have two major staples in theÂ PokÃ©monÂ franchise; for starters,Â PokÃ©mon XÂ andÂ PokÃ©mon Y are the firstÂ Pokemon games to ever see a worldwide simultaneous release. The second is that they sold 4 million copies in the first two days alone from Japan, Europe, and The Americas. It is important to note that the sales numbers tallied from Europe only count for October 12 considering a vast majority of retailers are closed on Sundays throughout Europe.
â€œThe early response toÂ PokÃ©mon XÂ andÂ PokÃ©mon YÂ not only reaffirms the ongoing passion of PokÃ©mon fans, but also indicates that an entirely new generation of gamers is eager to experience the franchise for itself,â€ said Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.
It is also worth mentioning thatÂ PokÃ©mon X andÂ PokÃ©mon Y were the fastest selling games on the Nintendo 3DS of all time. TheÂ PokÃ©mon franchise currently stands at selling more than 245 million games worldwide and is one of the strongest brands in the history of video games.
