Nintendo has recently announced that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is now the biggest Nintendo launch ever with a new milestone achieved.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet sales have now surpassed 10 million in the first three days, which makes the games the biggest launch in Nintendo History. No other software on any Nintendo platform has achieved this launch.

Aside from the sales globally, it was revealed that these games have sold more boxed copies in the UK during launch than any other game this year.

In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, players are introduced to a whole new experience, a unique open-world Pokémon adventure, which is the first time in the franchise.

Players embark on a new style of Pokémon journey, freely exploring at their own pace and tackling multiple main story paths in any order. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet also offer expanded multiplayer modes, allowing up to four players to travel across the land together. Along with series staples, such as trading and battling Pokémon, players can also explore the various locations of the region together with other players. Whether trading, battling, joining Tera Raid Battles or just having a relaxing picnic, players are sure to make some memorable experiences with their friends and family in local wireless or online multiplayer.
