Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire hit store shelves last week for most regions – and the games are well on their way to making a dent in last year’s sales for Pokemon X and Y. According to an early Famitsu report, the two remakes have apparently sold over 1.5 million copies in its first three days on sale in Japan. Earlier this month, we caught wind of pre-order sales tallying over 1 million, so it’s no surprise the latest Pokemon games have sky-rocketed in sales once again.
The Famitsu figures above do not, however, include download sales so the initial day one sales could be even higher. As per usual, we’ll report on the latest Media Create sales in Japan later today, which will confirm Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire’s overall sales in the region.
And People complain that there’s too many pokemon remakes? WELL that’s because when gamefreak makes a remake they update the whole engine and add a ton of new features, unlike other remakes that only update the graphics …. *looks at the last of us remastered and gta 5 for ps4* >_>
They probably just update the graphics by 10% and put “Remastered” on the title and it’s ready to go…
You da best I ever had!!!
You would know it…
As much as I love pokemon and the new games are indeed great! I just seems been there done that for the latest games… or maybe I’m just toting over the lack of a battle fronteir..
Well that’s why they don’t call them Remakes because they’re just that, remastered version. Do you not know what remastered means? Also to be fair, GTA 5 added a ton if new features but I wouldn’t expect any of you fanboys to know. TLoU on the other hand didn’t add much or anything at all. Aside from more frames, textures, shadows, lighting, and higher resolution.
*Nintendo drones covering their ears and eyes*
Ahh CoD of Nintendo~ Those poor suckers.
Too much water…. 7.8/10
Why does it seem like every time nintendo releases a game it sells 500, 000 copies to 1, 500, 000 copies in like a weekend.
Doomed since they introduced full 3d gaming in 1996.
Without our sacred game Pokemon, our homeworld would be in danger…
They need to be renintendofied again…
To be fair, we still have Smash and Kart. Without those 3, we would be in deep shit though.
Pokemon is the most important one though…
You guys think like me. Nintendo has to unleash luigi as well. His mansion series has taken off! Nintendo has more IPs to monetize. The time is now.
I wish Gamefreak would make a Pokémon rpg for the Wii U, it would be another plus for the console. And it would be nice to have a HD Pokémon. My smash bros Wii U bundle was dispatched today :D I can’t wait
How much has it sold in the us?
