Pokémon Black & White 2 hit 1.16m pre-orders

DS sequels looks like million sellers already

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 launched in Japan yesterday, and it looks like they could already be million sellers after amassing 1.16 million pre-orders, according to Yahoo! Japan.


The titles' predecessors, Pokemon Black and Pokemon White, also managed over a million pre-orders, and went on to sell over 14.71 million units worldwide, reports Gematsu.

Japanese mag Famitsu went with a 36/40 in its Pokemon Black and White 2 review.

Although the game looks very similar to its predecessor, and is being released on the original Nintendo DS, its developer has promised the sequel will have "plenty of new surprises".

Pokemon Black and White 2 have Europe release dates between September and December.
