Default Impressive Sales of Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen in Europe!

Impressive Sales of Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen in Europe!
-10/19/04-


Pokemon is still well and alive in Japan, as well as here in the US, but it's also doing pretty good for itself in Europe. In just two days of sales, Pokemon FireRed and Pokemon LeafGreen sold 250,000 units in Europe. And if you're wondering, yes, that's a lot. Sales of the GBA SP has also gone up, by 200 percent. The recent price drop of GBA SP and the release of Pokemon FireRed and Pokemon LeafGreen helped increase the sales.

Jim Merrick, Senior Director of European Marketing for Nintendo of Europe:
"This is a record sales uplift for the handheld console that continues to lead the market, with a European installed base of almost 5 million. This recent price drop enables us to offer gamers everywhere the Game Boy Advance SP at its most affordable price ever and with so many great games available now and in the future, there has never been a better time to get into handheld gaming. The phenomenal success of Pokemon FireRed and Pokemon LeafGreen in the first two days on sale proves that the franchise is still very much alive. For the first time ever in a Pokemon game, we have introduced wireless gameplay through the use of a Wireless Adaptor. We believe this, plus the host of new features in the game, have been key to its success."

I pre-ordered fire red and fetched it as soon as one of my 3 nearest GAME stores opened. I even waited outside the store with another good few people for it to open, of course I was first there I'm glad its sold so well in Europe as it might mean Nintendo might hold as big an event as the U.S. Pokemon Rocks tours over here. After looking at the photo's and video's at www.pokemon.com I sure hope they hold an event like that here.
