Famitsu publisher Enterbrain and Media-Create have announced that Pokémon Black and White has sold 5 million units in Japan.

The RPG duo released last September in the country. It’s the fourth DS game to hit the figure, but is the fastest to do so ever at 17 weeks.

Nintendo confirmed to VG247 yesterday it would release Black and White in Europe on March 4.
