The lights are on
As if there was any doubt that Pokémon is still a mega franchise. Pokémon Black Version 2 & White Version 2 sales impressed in the first week in Japan.
Famitsu reports combined estimated sales of both versions of the game totaled 1,619,000 units in just two days. This is down from the first Black and White titles, which sold 2,637,285 in the first two days back in 2010.
The game releases this fall in North America.
Persona 4 Vita also sold like gangbusters, though not to this extreme. Vita finally got a boost in Japan!
I thought B&W was brilliant, so it surprises me that the sequel would sell 1M less in the first 2 days.
Im personally glad they took a break, but still getting this
Even though it was down in sales, it's nice to see the franchise that I grew up with is still being enjoyed today!
Sales are down mainly because the 3DS has been out for a while now, and it should have been developed for that. Nintendo is doing what Sony did with the PS2 games still being pushed whiled the PS3 was out.
