Pokémon Sword And Shield Is The Fastest-Selling Switch Game Yet

Pokémon Sword And Shield Is The Fastest-Selling Switch Game Yet

The corporate introduced as of late that Pokemon Sword & Protect have shifted a staggering six million copies worldwide right through the video games first week on sale.

The numbers are in for Pokemon Sword and Shield's debut in Japan, and as you might have expected, the releases went over really well. 2 million of those units were sold here in the US. These figures also include physical and digital sales, so they give us a more complete picture than Famitsu's numbers did yesterday, as those only included physical copies. Ultimate at 15.71 million, and Super Mario Odyssey at 15.38 million according to Wikipedia. As Ahmad points out in a separate tweet, that could mean that Sword and Shield made more money than previous games while not necessarily selling more copies. Two million of those copies were purchased in the U.S. during the first two days, making it the highest-grossing Pokémon launch yet. Now, Sword and Shield are on the way to beat the record on the basis of the sale in the first week.

Unsurprisingly, Pokemon Sword and Shield are both doing very well for Nintendo since the twin titles launched last Friday.
