More than a week after Nintendo officially released Game Freak’s “Pokémon Sun and Moon,” the official soundtrack of the Nintendo 3DS titles is finally available to download from iTunes. Another good news that arrived this week refers to how “Pokémon Sun” and “Pokémon Moon” have become the fastest-selling games of Nintendo in the Americas.
On Wednesday, BulbaNewsNOW announced on its official Twitter account that the soundtrack for the well-received “Pokémon” games is now available for purchase on iTunes. The publication that followed the journey of the two games ever since they were announced also provided a link to the official iTunes Preview page for the soundtrack, entitled “Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon: Super Music Collection.”
Based on the preview page, the soundtrack contains 169 tracks that include Jun’ichi Masuda and Go Ichinose’s “An Adventure Is Beginning,” as well as Minako Adachi’s “Alola Region Theme” that features Masaya Watanabe, Lisa Ooki, Yuu Ochida, Naoto Fuga and Masayuki Okazaki. Also included in the collection is Hitomi Sato and Go Ichinose’s “Professor Kukui’s Theme,” Adachi’s “Lillie’s Theme” and Masuda and Tomoaki Oga’s “Let’s Go to Ultra Space!” Each track costs $0.99, while the entire collection is valued at $9.99.
Meanwhile, it appears that “Pokémon Sun and Moon” received a lot of love ever since they were released on Nov. 18. In Nintendo’s latest press release, the Japanese video game company announced that the new titles have already become the fastest-selling games in the Americas in the history of Nintendo.
Less than two weeks since they were launched, the sold units have already reached 3.7 million. Nintendo revealed that this accounts for an 85 percent increase on the sales of the new games as compared to “Pokémon X” and “Pokémon Y,” My Nintendo News reported.
“With these huge sales figures, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon have proved themselves as two of the hottest video games to buy this holiday season,” Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Doug Bowser was quoted as saying. “With great reviews and outstanding fan response, these next iterations in the Pokémon series are sure to please any player in the family.”
