Pokemon Black and White sales catch’em all
The best selling Pokemon game at launch? Pokemon Black and White. The best selling games during the month of March, 2011? Pokemon Black and White. There’s a pattern here, and Pokemon is the answer. The classic concept may be up there in age (the first Pokemon games used the same ideas and are over a decade old) but they’re clearly as popular now as they ever have been. In fact, they’re even more popular now than they ever have been, as the sales of the Nintendo DS game show. Famitsu Weekly even awarded the game a perfect score of 40 out of 40, only the 15th game in history to score so well, and the only Pokemon game do to so.
