Nintendo has announced that the combined day one sales of Pokémon Black and White in the US reached 1.08 million units. The games have already breezed past two million in Japan, as well as storming the UK Chart this week.
Charlie Scibetta, Corporate Communications Director at Nintendo of America, had the following to say:
“These sales numbers illustrate the continued strength of the Nintendo DS family of systems. Already established as the nation’s best-selling video game platform of all time, the installed base of more than 47 million makes it the ideal hand-held for developers to reach a huge gaming-focused target audience.”
Seems there is still a lot of Poké-love in the world.
