Pokémon Black & White Version 2 achieve sales of over 1.6 million

Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has provided a first week sales figure for Pokémon Black Version 2 & White Version 2, courtesy of Enterbrain.

With pre-orders already exceeding 1.16 million, the key Nintendo DS release was able to achieve sales of 1,618,621.

In context, as Pokémon Black Version 2 & White Version 2 were released on a Saturday such a figure only consists of sales across two days. Yes, two days!

It’s also become the first game to sell a million units in Japan this year across all platforms, although failed to best records previously set by the original Pokémon Black & White, which sold 2,637,285 units across two days on sale.
