Pokémon Black and White 2 are easily two of the most anticipated games of the year. Here in North America, “Fall 2012” will not get here soon enough. We may have a couple more months to wait, however Japan saw the release on Saturday, June 23rd.
Sales on the release date surpassed all first day sales of the year, so far. With an astonishing 1,618,621 copies sold the games have quickly become not only the fastest selling game of the year, but also the only game in 2012 to surpass 1 million in sales on day one. Pokémon Black and White 2 has also become the third fastest selling DS game of all time.
Although the sales numbers were stellar, we have to take a moment to compare it to the original Black and White game’s sales. At launch, the original had sold just over 2.6 million copies during the first weekend.
Now that Pokémon Black and White 2 have been released in Japan, are you more anxious for the North American release?
