Pokémon X and Pokémon Y aren’t due for release until October 12, but pre-sales for the two games have already topped Dragon’s Crown’s total sales. Media Create reports pre-orders for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y started on August 10. In just two days, 260,000 copies were presold. Pokémon Tretta Lab for Nintendo 3DS has sold 22,000 units since its release on August 10.

Just for reference, Pokémon Black & White 2 pre-orders reached 1.16 million a week before those games came out. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y still have a good two months before its launch. Having mini-figures as a pre-order bonus should bump up those reservation numbers for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y too.
