News: Pokémon Still Quite Popular

Out in Japan next month, Pokémon Black and White are destined to destroy all opponents in a storm of sales, with pre-orders for the titles having already smashed the million mark.

The most impressive part? Stores only started taking pre-orders on July 31st, making the feat a new record for the DS, with the Pokémon Company expecting the total figure to top 1.5m by the time the games are launched in Japan on September 18th.

The titles will be released in North America and Europe in Spring 2011.
