Pokémon Sun and Moon already super popular

Nintendo has announced that Pokémon Sun and Moon are officially the best pre-selling games in their long history, with a record number of pre-orders for the games. Additionally, the special demo version is now the most downloaded demo on the 3DS eShop ever, with over 3.5 million downloads within the first week.

The games, due for release next month, commemorate the franchise’s 20th anniversary, with the first Pokémon game launched 20 years ago. Recent outings like Pokémon GO have only enhanced popularity, and have contributed to the increasing demand for pre-orders and demos.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon launch on the 3DS on 18 November around the world, with the exception of Europe who will have to wait a few extra days until 23 November.
