Nintendo Ships Over 10 Million Pokémon Sun & Moon

It’s all been leading up to this. All year long Nintendo has been celebrating Pokémon’s 20th anniversary. From the original Red and Blue being released on the 3DS Virtual Console to the massively successful Pokémon Go to the monthly Mythical Pokémon downloads, it’s safe to say that Pokémon has probably been the most talked about gaming franchise this year.



Tomorrow Pokémon Sun & Moon release in North America. Nintendo has announced that it has shipped 10 million copies of the games worldwide. We already knew it was the most preordered game in Nintendo’s history, so hopefully the initial shipment will be enough to satisfy demand through the holidays. This massive shipment of games is the highest ever recorded for the 3DS.

So, after all of the hype and excitement, which version are you getting, Sun or Moon? Let us know below.
