Pokemon X & Y Sells Over 2 Million Units in US
Contributes to 135 percent increase in 3DS sales.
We reported on the NPD’s October report for game software sales in the United States and how Game Freak’s Pokemon X & Y contributed to the overall sales that month. Now, Nintendo has released a new infographic touting the game’s sales in the United States since its release, which have gone over 2 million and contributed to a 135 percent in sales for the 3DS. Check it out below.
Other figures include this being the fastest 3DS game to sell 1 million units, achieving this target within a day (and going on selling 4 million units worldwide within two days) and 1 out of every 5 3DS owners revealed to have purchased one of the versions. There have also been more than 2 million tweets in the past 30 days about Pokemon. Now isn’t that something?
Pokemon X & Y is also selling great over in Japan, where it is expected to cross over 3 million units sold in its lifetime. Check out our review for the game here.
