The Pokemon franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and it seems to be more popular than ever. Want more proof? Pokemon Sun and Moon just became the fastest-selling games that Nintendo has ever launched in North America. Since launching for the 3DS on November, Nintendo has sold 3.7 million copies of Pokemon Sun and Moon.
That’s nearly twice what Pokemon X and Y, Nintendo’s previous fastest-selling games ever, sold in the two weeks after their release in 2013.
“With these huge sales figures, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon have proved themselves as two of the hottest video games to buy this holiday season,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With great reviews and outstanding fan response, these next iterations in the Pokemon series are sure to please any player in the family.”
Pokemon Sun and Moon will likely continue to set sales records through the holiday season… Nintendo previously announced that more than 10 million copies of the game were shipped to stores throughout the world.
