Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon sold a combined total of 3.7 million units in less than two weeks in the Americas, an 85 percent increase over Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, and are the fastest-selling games in Nintendo history in the region, Nintendo announced.
“With these huge sales figures, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon have proved themselves as two of the hottest video games to buy this holiday season,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With great reviews and outstanding fan response, these next iterations in the Pokemon series are sure to please any player in the family.”
Sales for all Pokemon-related software have surpassed 280 million units worldwide since the launch of Pokemon Red Version and Pokemon Blue Version in 1996.
If you missed it earlier, Nintendo announced that first week sales of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon in Europe totaled 1.7 million.
