Pokémon Black/White Pre-orders Surpass 1 Million on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

With Pokémon Black/White set to re-ignite the longrunning Nintendo series, pre-orders for the new DS game have topped 1 million.

Bulbanews report that Nintendo recently issued combined pre-order sales figures for the new Pokémon duo, making the games the fastest DS pre-orders to date. Nintendo expects a continual interest, with an estimated 1.5 million pre-orders before the game leaps onto retail shelves from September 18th.

No news yet of a solid release outside Japan, except for sometime during Spring 2011.

Damn, this game is getting a lot of noterity. I really hope Nintendo does well with this installment to the franchise.

mmm...I won't be taking my DS to Japan so no buying this...

On the plus side, 1 less distraction I guess.

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

Wow.
Anyone else anticipating that this game will do rather well in the sales department...?

Wow thats unprecedented, a mainline Pokemon game about to sell millions of copies you say?

Who would have thought?

It is unprecedented for a DS game to have that many pre-orders. The previous DS Pokémon games didn't get this many pre-orders by quite a bit.

The game's not even out yet, it's one of the most pre-ordered games of all time in Japan.
Impressive.
