Did you buy Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire? If so, you're not alone. Loads and loads of folks did, too. Millions.

According an official release (via Famitsu), over 7.7 million copies of the games have been shipped worldwide. What's more, the numbers were especially strong in Europe during both games' first week on sale, where they saw an 135 percent increase compared to the incredibly successful launch of Pokémon X/Y.

In case you missed it, here is Kotaku's review for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
