Pokémon Scarlet and Violet may have some serious technical issues, but it seems to have had no impact on sales of the new generation.

Nintendo has today announced global sales of Scarlet and Violet for the Switch have been able to surpass the 10 million mark in just the first three days. Both versions were released worldwide last week on 18th November.

These games have also set a new Nintendo record - becoming the highest-selling title across any Nintendo platform within the first three days. Earlier this week, it was also revealed how first-week sales of Scarlet and Violet in the UK were 25% higher than Pokémon Sword and Shield.
