David Gibson has Tweeted that Enterbrain has announced that Pokémon X / Y has already sold out in Japan ahead of its release this Saturday. He also mentioned that Monster Hunter 4 is still sold out, however the release of Pokémon X / Y will help boost sales.
"Enterbrain - JP retailers saying MH4 is still sold out, Pokemon X/Y already sold out ahead of launch and MH4 will benefit (users buy both)," Tweeted Gibson.
Pokémon X / Y is set to launch worldwide this Saturday, October 12.
