Pokemon Black and White sells a bajillion copies to Japanese Pokémon fans
We’re not sure if you know this or not, but that Pokémon thing seems to be pretty popular. Honest! “How popular,” you ask? Well, recently, the latest game in the franchise, Pokemon Black and White, launched in Japan. In the first two days of appearing on the market, Pokefans purchased over 2.6 million copies of the game. That, we’d argue, is a bucket load of Pocket Monsters. The game is available on the Japanese Nintendo DS, as well as the Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi, and the jumbo Nintendo DSiXL — not the Nintendo 3DS …yet. Other audiences in Europe and the Americas will have to wait until next spring to battle it out with the 5th generation Pokemon, like Mijumaru, Pokabu, Tsutaaja, Reshiram, Zekrom, Zorua, and Zoroark. We can hardly wait!!
