With only ten days left until release, Pokemon X and Y have collectively claimed the crown of the most pre-ordered 3DS game in Japan, reports Famitsu. Sitting at a pretty 1.26 million copies pre-ordered, X and Y have edged out Black 2 and White 2 by a margin of 100,00 copies, and passed Black and White's pre-order numbers by 180,000 units.
I don't think anyone who's even remotely aware of the series' success is surprised by this, but I have to admit I never thought it would outdo Black 2 and White 2 so early, and with such a commanding lead. I guess would-be trainers can't resist the call of the Kalos region.
Pokemon X and Y will release worldwide on October 12, 2013.
