By Posted 9 Mar 2011, 16:38

A few days ago Pokémon Black Version and White Version were released in North America, now we are hearing that one-day sales were unsurprisingly high.

According to OfficialNintendoMagazine.co.uk Pokemon Black and White are now the fastest selling Pokémon games of all time, over 1 million copies were shifted in 1 day in the US.

Prior to this Pokémon Diamond and Pearl set the sales record by shifting more than 780,00 copies in one-day, it is thought that the new game was more popular due to the new battle systems and new Pokémon which you can catch.

The impressive sales figures suggest that people have not been put off by the fact that this the Nintendo 3DS is released in North America later this month, you can play Pokémon Black Version and White on the 3DS, however there will be no 3D visuals, it is thought that a proper 3DS Pokémon game will arrive in Japan in late 2011 / early 2012.
