Pokémon Black & White have already broken countless sales records despite not yet reaching Western shores, and Famitsu reports that they still show no signs of stopping. The two latest DS Pokémon games just broke five million in sales in Japan. To put this into perspective: that makes Black & White at 9th place for the best-selling games of all time in Japan, and on target to keep on rising higher on the chart.
Pokémon games of course have always dominated the Japanese game market, so this is really no surprise, but will Black & White perform as well in the States? If so, we could be looking at one of the best-selling games ever, period. It’d be nice to see another Pokémon title in the Top 10 – there hasn’t been one since Gold & Silver.
