Nintendo Finally succumbed to the constant demands of Shenao fans this year and outsourced the remake Pokemon Diamond and Pearl To a new team. To be fair, the results have been mixed: according to our own Alex Donaldson, the remake of the Game Freak classic 4th generation DS game is a faithful, basic remake-for better or worse.
However, despite the mixed reactions from critics and consumers around the world, the sales of “Pokemon” brilliant diamonds and sparkling pearls have been exceptional.These games, first developed by ILCA, a non-Game Freak studio, sold more than 6 million copies worldwide (per Faguang). In any case, this is a good start to the life of the game.
If you need a benchmark to measure this success, these numbers not only exceed Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s 5 million in a week, but are more than twice Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee’s 3 million in a week.
However, compared with other mainline Pokemon games, we heard in 2019 that the last mainline version of the Pokemon series achieved a similar goal. Pokemon Sword and Shield also sold more than 6 million copies in a week. This is 4 million Pokemon X and Y on Nintendo 3DS in a week.
However, the numbers are lower than the Pokemon Sun and Moon, 7.2 million copies were sold in the first week of launch. People just like the environment in Hawaii, right?
