4 Days until the Poké-bomb hits America – 533,000 pre-orders taken

Filed under: DS Lite, Gaming, Nintendo, Pokemon — Daniel @ 6:47 pm

Mission Impossible CharizardPokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl finally make their appearance in North America this Sunday, April 22nd.

Today, Nintendo announced that over 500,000 pre-orders have been taken for the games in the United States alone. So much for Pokemon being ‘just a fad’…

Apparently, the figure is more than double the amount taken for the last main games in the series, FireRed and LeafGreen, which have gone on to sell over 3.4 million units in America alone. Now that’s pretty damn impressive.
