Pokémon X & Y exceeded 100,000 units during its first weekend on sale in Australia, Nintendo has announced alongside Pokémon Bank pricing for the region.

The title hit shelves the same weekend as everywhere else, October 12, and the game smashed all previous records for a Nintendo game in Australia and New Zealand, with the previous entry, Pokémon Black & White, moving over 80,000 units in its first week of sales.

Combined sales of Pokémon X & Y exceeded this in the first day alone and Nintendo Australia is ensuring that additional stock will be available from this week.

In North America, Pokémon X & Pokémon Y were the No. 1 and No. 2 top-selling titles for October, with more than 1.7 million units combined sold, according to NPD.

The Pokémon Bank, will allows users to transfer caught Pokémon in Black & White and over into X&Y will release in December, and in Australia and New Zealand it will run users AU$6.50 and NZ$8.50 annually.

In North America it will run users $4.99 a year and will be compatible with future Pokémon games in all regions.

    future Pokémon games in all regions.

    I’m convinced that just like for pokemon black white, there will be a new pokemon on the 3DS, nintendo changed their development cycle
    from 1 games/gen to 3 pokemon games/gen that’s great as they keep making original contents

    @1 Dunno. I searched in various ways on the site and on our work doc and didn’t find it so I posted it.

    I think #1 is thinking of this, but it’s not really the same article (other than both of them being related to Aus, but that’s it).
