Nintendo has proudly reported that Pokemon XY are officially the fastest of all 3DS games to reach one million sales. As if you needed anymore evidence of the games' success. The world never outgrew its Pokemon fever.
The top four 3DS games in terms of sales include Pokemon XY, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, and New Super Mario Bros. 2, in order of popularity. Pokemon XY beat all three by hitting one million sales in a single day, while the rest reached the same milestone across four weeks, six weeks, and 16 weeks, respectively. Previously, Nintendo announced that Pokemon XY had exceeded four million sales on launch week.
Additionally, the US has seen more than two million copies of Pokemon XY sold. Like I said, Pokemon fever.
It all works out rather nicely for Nintendo, too. Four weeks after Pokemon XY came out, 2DS/3DS sales were estimated to have risen 135%. Dig the infographic below.
