Pokemon mainline sequel out today in Japan.

Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 launched in Japan today. While we’ll have to wait until next Wednesday for sales figures, pre-order numbers are forseeing an successful turnout for the first Pokemon mainline sequel.

As of June 17, pre-orders for both titles combined at 1.16 million. Its predecessors, Pokemon Black and Pokemon White, also saw over one million pre-orders, and went on to sell over 14.71 million units worldwide.

Photos from the game’s Japanese launch event can be seen over at 4Gamer.net (more here) and GAME Watch.

Thanks, Yahoo! Japan.

    Pokemon games always sell well, because kids, teenagers, and adults always buy them (if they are fans.)
