No, that’s actually not a glitch
Nintendo, with a keen sense to address the feedback about the many technical issues in the latest Pokemon games, has announced that the latest game(s) have sold a combined 10 million copies — in 3 days.
Holy shit, well, that’s a lot of copies sold.
Here are the numbers:
- It’s hit 10 million faster than any Pokemon game before it
- It’s hit 10 million faster than any Switch game before it
- It’s hit 10 million faster than any Nintendo first party game ever before it
Yes, it’s the fastest selling Nintendo game. Ever. In fact, it’s almost already ranked in the top ten of Switch game sales all time, which it will undoubtedly hit over this holiday period.
To put it plainly, it’s a monster. It’s already surpassed God of War: Ragnarok, which earlier in the day revealed that it had broken PlayStation’s own first party records. And it’s on the heels of Modern Warfare II hitting $800 Million in sales in its first week as well. This could very well be one of the biggest software-centric sales months in video game history.
The news comes as the game has been criticized for its many glitches and issues. But guess what? No one apparently cares.
