The sales came from physical copies at retailers in addition to digital downloads on the eShop store of the handheld system. As a result, the two software products managed to sell 2.35 million units in the Untied States since release.

The sales should be going up further for the month of December as Nintendo already released Nintendo 2DS bundles featuring “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” The new hardware system removes the stereoscopic 3D effects, making it cheaper than the regular Nintendo 3DS hardware in addition to the Nintendo 3DS XL unit.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y each sold more than 225,000 combined digital and physical units in their second month on the market. This brought the combined life-to-date total to more than 2.35 million units. On Dec. 4, Nintendo revealed special edition Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Nintendo 2DS bundles that should keep the games’ momentum going through the holidays and into 2014.

“Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y,” along with the aforementioned Nintendo 2DS, came out in North America on Oct. 12. The two video games have a price tag of $39.99 each while the new handheld iteration costs $129.99.
