Pokemon Black White fastest DS games to reach 5 million sales

first_imgIt will come as no surprise that Nintendo’s latest duo of Pokemon games, namely Pokemon Black and Pokemon White, have been flying off the shelves in Japan. After selling 2.63 million units in the first 2 days on sale, they have now set a new sales record.As of January 9 their combined sales in Japan have reached 5,036,724 units. Four other DS games have sold more than 5 million copies, but Black and White have gone past the 5 million mark faster than any other game, taking just 17 weeks.We’d like to point out that this could be seen as cheating, though. Two games shipped, but they are being classed as one here for sales. Avid Pokemon fans will no doubt be buying both, but I suspect if this was a single game we’d still have some way to go to the 5 million sales mark.The good news for Nintendo is the company still has a U.S. and European launch for both games. That means a few million more sales and probably some more records getting broken.Read more at Andriasanglast_img
