A Pokemon Sun and Moon demo was released earlier this month on Oct. 18 for the Nintendo 3DS, and it seems to have been very popular. It has since been announced by Nintendo that the demo has had the “fastest start for any demo in the history of the Nintendo 3DS system,” with over 3.5 million downloads.
As GameSpot reports, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima stated this “shows the breadth of the audience for these games.” Pokemon Sun and Moon has no doubt been helped by the hugely popular mobile game Pokemon GO, which was launched at the beginning of Summer.
Kimishima acknowledged the boost Pokemon GO has given the franchise, stating: “We have included a variety of exciting new features, while also ensuring that it is an approachable title for all kinds of gamers, including people who are experiencing Pokemon for the first time with Pokemon Go. As Pokemon has been a hot topic recently, even among people with no game experience, there is fantastic momentum for the release of this latest Pokemon title.”
It looks like people are excited to get their hands on the new game. Pokemon Sun ad Moon is set to be released on the Nintendo 3DS on November 18.
