After learning about the breakthrough sales data from the UK and Japan, we now have similar details related to the US.

Obviously, “Pokémon Sword and Shield” broke the record in the United States because it successfully exceeded 2 million units on the first day of the sale. This makes it the best premiere in Pokémon history, even surpassing the sun and the moon.

Nintendo also confirmed that since the launch of the Pokémon game in 1996, the game has sold more than 240 million units worldwide.

Here’s the full announcement from Nintendo:

Nintendo of America announced that after selling more than 6 million units worldwide during launch weekend, the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games are among the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch games of all time. Additionally, the games sold just over 2 million copies in the first two days in the U.S., making it the highest-grossing launch of any Pokémon game.

“This past weekend, millions of people began their Pokémon journeys through the new Galar region,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With such a momentous launch, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield have proven to be two of the must-have games this holiday season.”

Games in the core Pokémon RPG series have sold more than 240 million units worldwide since launching with the Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version games in 1996.

In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, players embark on a journey through the Galar region, where they’ll catch, battle and trade a variety of Pokémon, meet a memorable cast of characters and unravel the mystery behind the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta. In the Wild Area, which stretches between the Galar region’s different towns and cities, players will explore a vast expanse of untamed wilderness that’s full of Pokémon to battle and catch. By teaming up with three other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles, players will face off against gigantic and super-strong Pokémon known as Dynamax Pokémon.
