Pokemon X And Y Sell 4 Million Copies In Two Days


Pokémon X and Pokémon Y have two major staples in the Pokémon franchise; for starters, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are the first 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.

“The early response to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y not only reaffirms the ongoing passion of Pokémon fans, but also indicates that an entirely new generation of gamers is eager to experience the franchise for itself,” said Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.

It is also worth mentioning that Pokémon X and Pokémon Y were the fastest selling games on the Nintendo 3DS of all time. The Pokémon franchise currently stands at selling more than 245 million games worldwide and is one of the strongest brands in the history of video games.
