Nintendo doesn’t have a great year so far, but it seems that it might end it with “style”. According to reports, the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are the best-selling video games in the United States and the holiday shopping season has just begun.
The two games have been released for Nintendo 3DS on November 18, 2016, which is about two weeks after the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has hit the stores (November 4, 2016). Despite that, the two Pokémon games have been released so late, it seems that it is already outselling Activision’s new game.
In other words, Pokémon could end the year as one of the most successful franchises in the $99.6 billion global gaming market.
It is good to know that Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon come after the Pokémon Go game, also developed by Niantic. The latter has been released for mobile devices that run on Android OS and iOS and it became one of the most downloaded mobile games in both the Google Play Store and Apple Store, in just a few days.
Pokémon Go allows players to catch Pokémon that are placed in the real world, using Google Maps data. We remind you that the Pokémon Go has reached 500 million downloads and over $500 million in revenue in a very short time and there are lots of gamers who download it every day to their smartphones.
It is good to know that the sales for the Nintendo 3DS console are going very well and since the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon have finally been released, we think that more and more fans of the popular media franchise will buy the mentioned console to play one of the two new games.
