New Pokemon in big numbers shock in Japan.

Pokemon Black and White has sold 2.63 milion units in its first 48 hours on sale in Japan, according to Mantanweb.

Before that, the game had already hit 1 million pre-orders in the country.

If it’s not Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest or Monster Hunter, the Japanese will go mental for Pokemon. Confirmed.

Pokemon Black and White launches next spring for DS in the west.
