Nintendo has provided some highlights in regards to the sales of the Nintendo 3DS exclusive video games, “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” According to Nintendo World Report on Dec. 15, the publisher disclosed that the two titles managed to sell 225,000 copies combined for the month of November.
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.
