The new PokÃ©mon titles for the Nintendo DSi have been a huge sucess as we reported earlier in this post about it’s day one sales. The success continues as a report from the Official Nintendo Magazine brings us coverage on the sales from the first two weeks of sales in both Europe and North America.
From day one the game was rumored to be big, despite the fact that the Nintendo DSi regarded “old tech” thanks to the Nintendo 3DS release, PokÃ©mon Black version and PokÃ©mon White version have soared through the U.S, producing 2 million sales in the first 2 weeks, in the UK one million copies have already been sold and the number is still increasing.
The success of sales put the games at the top of most sales charts across all platforms in the first week. Nintendo replied to the reaction with this tweet, “Thanks, PokÃ©mon fans! You helped the PokÃ©mon Black and PokÃ©mon White Version games hit the 2 million sales mark in just 2 weeks!”
Both games still remain in the U.K and U.S top ten and reviewers have described these editions of PokÃ©mon games to be the best yet. There is little doubt that sales will continue to rise steadily from here, we wonder if a Nintendo 3DS PokÃ©mon release will be announced at E3 2011.
What did you think of the new PokÃ©mon games?
