The Pokemon Company and Nintendo launched two major new Pokemon games in the space of a little over two months, with Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl launching in November last year and Pokemon Legends: Arceus releasing this January. In its latest quarterly earnings report, Nintendo announced updated sales figures for both, and both have enjoyed impressive sales.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus has now sold over 12.64 million units worldwide (up from 6.5 million units as of early February), while Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have collectively sold 14.65 million units (up from 13.97 million units as of the end of December).
Figures for both are, to put it mildly, impressive. In fact, Pokemon Legends: Arceus sold 11.4 million units within the first 10 weeks of launch alone. Meanwhile, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have become the best-selling Pokemon remakes to date.
Both titles are likely to maintain solid momentum for the foreseeable future where sales are concerned (particularly Pokemon Legends), while Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, due out later this year, are also expected to be big sellers.
Nintendo has also announced updated lifetime hardware sales for the Nintendo Switch. Read more on that through here. Updated sales figures have also been provided for recent releases like Kirby and the Forgotten Land and Metroid Dread, as well as the top 10 best-selling first party Switch games.
