Surprise! Pokémon continues to dominate in sales

0

While bathroom accoutrements are certainly one indicator of brand ubiquity, there's nothing quite like cold, hard sales numbers. Pokémon, that other monster-hunting game series, is still trucking along with no signs of slowing down. In Nintendo's most recent annual report, the company announced that Diamond / Pearl has exceeded 17.57 million in sales; Platinum, 7.43 million; HeartGold / SoulSilver, 11.90 million; and Black / White, 11.51 million.

Now, these numbers are current as of March 2011, which means the games have had a few more months to rack up sales. Another Nintendo briefing that tracked sales through June has Black / White at 12.87 million globally, an incredible figure when you realize that the game was just released last September in Japan and this past March in the rest of the world. That's what I call domination!

To all those still wondering how Nintendo will turn the fortunes of the 3DS around, look no further than the next Pokémon update. Money in the bank.
