Japan is crazy for Pokemon X and Y; Nintendo EShop crashes after Worldwide Launch

So Pokemon X and Y has been released in Japan(and rest of the world). It is the most pre-ordered game on Amazon Japan and has broken the record of previous Pokemon games. Now that it is released, we are seeing huge lines of people waiting to get their hands on it through retail stores while Nintendo EShop went down once Pokemon X and Y was made available on it for download.

This news is not surprising since Pokemon is pretty big franchise. This is the first time the game was released simultaneously worldwide. This is also the first Pokemon game that is in complete 3D. It is also the first Pokemon game to be released on a brand new Nintendo handheld i.e 3DS.

    Japanese sure love to play the same RPG rehashes they’ve been playing for decades. No wonder the Japanese market is dying and stagnating in innovation.

        Hilarious coming from an obvious Nintendo drone who loves to damage control on N4G and youtube LOL.

          Yeah I’m such a Nintendrone that’s why I have multiple consoles…

          You’re nothing but a little boy who’s insecure about what console he purchases so spends his time trolling on NIntendo and Microsoft articles all day long LOL

          What an amazing life you have!

            Zelda thumbnail. Nintendrone comment history on both his disqus and N4G.

            Sorry bud, that “I own multiple consoles” BS ain’t flying by Lol. Are you perhaps angry kid? Since its nothing but biased damage control from your comments. How did a plastic toy box grow to have such an influence on your life, I have no idea.
