Pokemon Black / White Sells 1.4m Units in the Americas Day 1 - NewsVGChartz Staff , posted on 07 March 2011 / 7,660 Views
Nintendo's latest entry in the Pokemon series, which had an enormous opening in Japan last Fall, has launched to similarly enormous sales in the Americas. VGC data shows the title, across both the Black and White skus, selling 1.4m units day one in the Americas. Figures include DSi systems that were bundled with Pokemon Black / White.
As Pokemon Black / White has sold to over 15% of the 32m strong DS base in Japan, similar penetration in the Americas could result in sales of 7-8m units, if not more, in the Americas. In a mere day of sales however, Pokemon Black / White is already the 12th highest opening of all time in the Americas. Once full week figures come in, Pokemon Black / White should be amongst the top nine openings of all time in the Americas.
VGChartz will have more on Pokemon in the coming days and weeks as more figures become available.
