Pokemon X and Y have sold a combined total of more than four million units since their worldwide releases over the weekend, Nintendo revealed today.
The figures account for units sold in Asia, Europe and the Americas for the franchise's first simultaneous worldwide release. According to Nintendo's internal sales figures, the Pokemon series has sold more than 245 million games worldwide.
"The early response to Pokemon X and Pokemon Y not only reaffirms the ongoing passion of Pokemon fans," said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, "but also indicates that an entirely new generation of gamers is eager to experience the franchise for itself."
After its release in Asia last year, Nintendo revealed in December that Animal Crossing: New Leaf was the first Nintendo 3DS game to cross the two million sales mark. By April 2013, Nintendo revealed in an earnings report that the game was a major contributor to an increase in digital sales. By June 2013, after its release in other territories like North America, Nintendo's stock price rose to a two-year high.
