1.5 million units sold in Japan thus far.
Pokemon has done it again – the 3DS ports Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have managed to sell more than 3 million units in the three days since their release. The crazy part? The game isn’t even available in Europe yet. Even better, 1.5 million of those units are sales from Japan. By comparison, Pokemon X and Y sold 4 million units in the two days since its launch.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes of the original Game Boy Advance titles released in 2002. Along with improved visuals, they feature Mega Evolutions (including for the primary Legendaries Groudon and Kyogre) and a new side quest, the Delta Episode, wherein the player must prevent a meteor from crashing into the planet. And it doesn’t hurt that you can pick up two more Legendaries along the way while completing said mission.
Both games will become available on November 28th in Europe so stay tuned for more details on the same.
