All the previous releases such as Sun and Moon for 3DS have sold out around 16.17 million copies to the till date as per the Nintendo and in the West, it was the fastest-selling games of the company. It is also noting that the price point for the sold rate for games is quite less and 3DS has a larger base for the installation.
