Pokemon Sun and Moon May Become The Best-Selling 3DS Game Yet

According to Famitsu Magazine, Nintendo has already shipped 10 million units of Pokemon Sun and Moon worldwide. This number is astounding considering that Nintendo shipped out less than 700,000 units for the release of Pokemon X and Y. It’s also important to note that this is the biggest initial shipment of any 3DS game so far.

To date, Pokemon X and Y is the best-selling game on the Nintendo 3DS, selling over 15 million units. The extremely high volume of units shipped seems to suggest that Sun and Moon have the potential to out-sell their predecessor and become the best-selling games on the handheld console.

The Pokemon Company have been working hard to advertise the release of the latest Pokemon title, as well as Pokemon’s year-long 20th-anniversary celebration. With the release of Pokemon Go, one of the highest grossing apps of all-time, the publicity and interest in the series have skyrocketed in the past few months.

With all of these things in mind, it’s safe to say that Pokemon Sun and Moon are on the right path to claiming the title of best-selling game on the 3DS. Have you purchased Pokemon Sun and Moon?
