Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version, both released earlier this month, have reported record sales as well as positive reviews. PCMag.com reported:
According to publisher Nintendo, both versions have sold over 1 million units since their March 6 launch. The record was previously held by “Pokemon Diamond” and “Pokemon Pearl,” which came out in 2007 with a combined sales total of 780,000 units in one day.
And the gaming blog Joystiq said the latest additions to the Pokemon lineup:
represent the very best that the franchise has to offer: An endearing cast of monsters and trainers, addictive collection mechanics, a 40-plus hour single-player campaign and a bevy of bolstered multiplayer functions.
And though I’ve yet to check them out firsthand, I did, however, have a chance to chat with Pokemon expert, Seth McMahill. See what McMahill has to say about the latest Pokemon titles.
