Pokemon Diamond/Pearl: 5 Million Copies Sold in Japan!
-12/30/06-


Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl reached the 5 million units sold in Japan, making it the best selling Pokemon game of all time in Japan. Pokemon Diamond/Pearl reached the 5 million mark in barely 3 months on December 27th (the games were released in Japan back in September 28, 2006). The milestone was reported on Japanese gaming website Famitsu: http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/200...65081,0,0.html

Pokemon Diamond/Pearl will be released in the US on April 22, 2007.

Before Pokemon Diamond/Pearl reached the 5 million mark, there were clear signs that the games will be a huge hit. Here's some of the other notable achievements it has made in Japan:

First Week Sales: Nintendo DS Record
Pokemon Diamond/Pearl sold 1,586,360 units in the first week of sales (September 28th - October 1st), making it the fastest selling DS game ever in Japan.

3 Million Units Sold in 46 Days
Pokemon Diamond/Pearl is the record holder for the fastest selling Nintendo DS game to reach 3 million units sold in Japan.

Yes so close to 2007 and getting closer to play D/P. There must be alot of people in Japan that like pokemon or they just bought both games. I don't know if the US can buy that much in 3 months.

...Just wow. Five million copies sold already in Japan? Dang, a lot of gamers over there. XD

Now I wonder if US citizens will buy Diamond/Pearl a lot too when April hits. Will probably be a long line at my neighborhood Wal Mart! XD

5 million copies is quite a feat. I wonder how it compares with other game (non Pokemon) sales.
