Every so often, Nintendo compiles a list of titles that have exceeded one million units, which I suppose must feel pretty nice to be able to do. The Big N has recently compiled a new one for the three-quarter period of April 2014 through December 2014, and it includes twelve (or fourteen, depending on whether or not you want to count Pokémon pairs as separate or not) games. Four are for the Wii U, while the rest help show the 3DS’s enormous presence. Unsurprisingly, given all the demand for them, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire stand firm at the top with an impressive 9.35 million units sold during the period, though they are beaten out by Mario Kart 7 and Pokémon X and Y‘s life-to-date sales.

Our Verdict

Stefan Terry
One of my earliest memories with games was just after Pokémon had come out in the states for the first time. I remember, after having watched the show for a couple weeks, stumbling across a friend with an original Gameboy playing Pokémon Red version using a Weedle. When he told me he was playing Pokémon, I told him I didn't know there was a Pokémon that had a pumpkin for a head. Boy games have come a long way. Speaking of games, I also contribute to making them somewhat professionally, and ocassionaly write about them. You should see some of that games writing stuff, I hear it's real popular with the kids these days.
