Apparently the sales of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are progressing even better than reported so far: here are the details.
Pokémon Sword and Shield totaled more sales than reported, and Nintendo was required to specify the correct numbers.
First, the six million copies of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are sell-through, which is to say we are talking about actual sales and not about distributed units, as generally indicated.
Secondly, the extraordinary result was not achieved within the first week, but only during the launch weekend. In short, we are talking about something exceptional even for a franchise as strong as Pokémon’s.
Available in stores from November 15, only on Nintendo Switch, the two editions of the new Game Freak title bring us to a new region, Galar, and introduce several new features compared to the previous chapters.
