    Enterbrain and Famitsu have provided a first week sales figure for Pokemon Black & White 2. The DS game sold 1,618,621 in its first week of sales. As the game was released on a Saturday, the "first week" includes just two days.



    Black & White 2 ended up with the third best start for the DS platform. It's also the first game to sell a million units this year, on any platform.



    Not bad for a follow up on B/W games and the second best sales for the first week in the franchise.

    It's interesting to know these stats, also it's a massive amount made even more impressive by being the best selling game so far this year.

    ^ Watch out, we got a badass here! ^

    Too bad I can't give it a go on my DS. My AK's busted up and I can't upgrade it. I'm thinking I'm the only one out of my friends that has a DS. That's why I sold my copy of White :/

    Well, I really enjoyed White 2. It has a much richer storyline and better animation. It also does feel like a true sequel.

    Surpasses BW in many ways.

    as quoting from Woods in Black Ops II

    "NONE OF THIS. SURPRISES ME."

    ladies and gentlemen: this is why Nintendo is dragging their feet with a 3DS title.

    I'd be more amazed if Black & White 2 didn't sell well. It'd actually be a good way to know if piracy honestly had an effect. Main series Pokémon games sell well regardless of piracy.. As @soulx said, if this was 3DS only, I could see a rise in sold 3DS units quite fast.

    It's a shame it's still better than 98% of the video games that come out.

    I'm sure more of a few of them are people from other countries too impatient to wait till its localized, and I'm sure some of them will buy it when it does come (myself included)

    Maybe they're "dragging thier feet" because Nintendo does not develop Pokemon games. Game Freak does. As for why not, it's because (sadly) Black/White 1 were DS games. They wanted the sequel on the same platform, and probably wanted them to still be compatible with eachother. I don't think a DS game can actively communicate with a 3DS game. Different ways of communication. Might be able to, I really am not sure. I don't think so, though.
