Unreal sales within the first three days
According to an official announcement issued by Nintendo , Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet achieved the most successful debut of any game in the long history of the Japanese giant.
Going into details, the 9th generation of the beloved franchise debuted exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on November 18th and immediately swept sales. Specifically, within the first three days, retail and digital sales combined exceeded 10 million! As the official announcement points out: "This is the highest level of worldwide sales for any software on any Nintendo platform in the first three days."

Specifically, a few hours ago Sony Santa Monica broke the PlayStation record, with God of War Ragnarök selling 5.1 million copies at launch. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet not only surpassed that number, they even managed to double the sales!
