Specifically, pokemon scarlet and Purple have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide in their first three days, this figure also includes both physical and download sales.
This means that pokemon scarlet and Purple have sold more in their first three days than any other piece of software released worldwide on any Nintendo system, ever.
Just let that sink in for a moment, even by Pokemon standards these kinds of sales are unheard of but to supersede any other software on any Nintendo system is profoundly impressive.
pokemon scarlet and Purple are set in the Paldea region, featuring two new Legendary Pokémon that you can ride, that of Koraidon for pokemon scarlet and Miraidon for Pokemon Purple. Paldea also seems to be loosely inspired by the Iberian Peninsula, in case you were curious.
pokemon scarlet and Purple are also very much open world in terms of their setup, which is in part the likely reason for this notable launch sales bump.
While I was concerned with the somewhat graphical simplicity of pokemon scarlet and Purpleit’s clear that Game Freak delivered on the game’s functionality, as these amazing sales prove.
pokemon scarlet and Purple are now available to play on the Switch.
