Back in August, Pokémon Black / White shattered Japanese Pokémon pre-order records, becoming the fastest game in the series to go over 1 million pre-orders.
Now, Famitsu are reporting that, in their opening weekend, Black and White collectively sold 2.63 million copies. The exact figure, if you’re curious, is 2,637,285 units. For reference, Dragon Quest IX sold 2.3 million units in its own opening weekend.
Pokémon Black / White are scheduled for a Spring 2011 release overseas.
