Pokemon Sword and Shield Slashes Record Books

Akihabara News (Tokyo) — Pokemon Sword and Shield sold around 1.37 million copies in Japan within the first three days of release, according to Shukan Famitsu magazine, which is a new record for any title developed for Nintendo’s Switch console.

These sales figures edge out 2018’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the previous record holder.

The worldwide figure for the launch weekend was in the neighborhood of 6 million units sold in the launch weekend.

Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s senior vice-president of sales and marketing, commented, “With such a momentous launch, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have proven to be two of the must-have games this holiday season.”
