Pokemon Sun And Moon Is The Biggest Nintendo Launch Ever In The UK


Some people may have thought, 20 years after its launch, Pokemon might only be apealing to a hand full of old fans and kids, Well, you'd be wrong, as it appears the series only gets stronger and stronger.

According to Eurogamer, the launch sales of Pokemon Sun and Moon last week were the biggest of any Nintendo launch ever in the UK. That includes anything on the massively selling Wii. On top of that, it doubled the numbers of the last releases Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. No specific numbers were shared.

Of course, the release has the advantage of having two games so it has that going for it, but at the same time, they or more or less the same game, so double dips would only be for the most ardent of fans.

My guess is that Pokemon Go has really rejuvinated the franchise in a big way with the mainstream. Sun and Moon, from everything I've played seems like an impressive addition to the franchise, so it does seem as a good a time as ever to jump back in if you haven't. It's pretty darn good.
