There’s a digital tidal wave occurring for Pokémon X & Y in Japan, where pre-orders have climbed the virtual ladder to a whopping 260,000 sales, excluding bundles. Pre-orders were opened in Japan just two days before the Media Create sales were configured, revealing that the latest Pokémon adventure on the 3DS is, quite possibly, set to be the biggest. In fact, Black and White 2 reached spectacular heights of 1.2 million pre-orders before it was released in Japan, so Pokémon X & Y is well on its way to breaking its predecessor’s final score.
The sheer size of the pre-orders, though, could have something to do with a certain bonus that’s got Japanese Pokémon fans all the more excited for its release. While stocks last, Japan can get its hands on special Xerneas or Yveltal figures, depending on which game they purchase. Also included in the bonus is a clear file folder boasting artwork from the game. And for those fans who love to go the extra mile and pre-order both games, they can get their hands on a World Art Book and CD. Pokémon X & Y will be released worldwide on October 12.
