Older Pokémon Games Are Still Selling Pretty Well

This is a pretty cool post I found on My Nintendo News.

My Nintendo News

Released Title March 2012 March 2013 Increase
2007 Pokémon Diamond/Pearl 17.61 million 17.63 million +20,000
2010 Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver 12.40 million 12.67 million +270,000
2011 Pokémon Black/White 14.71 million 15.42 million +710,000

Last year, Nintendo released the latest Game Freak-developed Pokémon role-playing games for the Nintendo DS, Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 – both of which have sold over seven million units. As you can see in the above table, which was compiled from Nintendo’s various financial reports over the last year, older Pokémon games for the Nintendo DS are still selling well, especially considering all of them were released over two years ago. The next installments in the main Pokémon series, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, are scheduled to release later this year, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
