The new Pokémon Scarlet and Violet games have broken sales records.

Nintendo has revealed that the games have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide in the first three days of their launch.

This means the games have officially broken the record for the “highest global sales level for any software on any Nintendo platform within the first three days”.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is the first mainline game to take place in the ‘open world’ meaning players can choose what they want to do.

The games have already beaten Pokémon Sword and Shield’s record, which sold six million copies in its opening few days when it launched in 2019.

If Pokémon Scarlet and Violet continue on this path, it means they could become the highest-selling Nintendo games of all time.

But they would have to beat some pretty tough competition from other Nintendo games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons (40 million copies) and Mario Cart 8 Deluxe, which sold a whopping 48 million copies!
