Pokémon X & Y Sales Surpass 12 Million

Nintendo has announced that the combined sales of Pokémon X & Y have reached over 12 million units since the pair of 3DS games released in October of last year. That's an awfully large number.

The Pokémon franchise has proven to be one of Nintendo's most successful series ever; it's virtually unparalleled in the handheld space and appeals to gamers of all ages. The folks over at Game Freak created something really special with Pokémon Red and Blue back in the late 90s, and that formula has proven to stand the test of time nearly two decades later.

What's your favorite 3DS game thus far? Pokémon X & Y is collectively the fastest selling game for the device, but that doesn't mean it's necessarily at the top of your list! If you haven't yet played Game Freak's latest, read our review and then pick up a copy.
