Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon have sold over four million copies in the United States, Nintendo announced today. The two specifically stand at 4.5 million since launching in late November. Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon were also the second and third best-selling games during the month of December as reported by NPD.

Nintendo also said today that the last quarter of 2016 was the “best-selling quarter for software in Nintendo 3DS history”. 7.3 million copies of first-party Nintendo games were sold during that period. For the seventh month in a row, sales grew year-over-year thanks to the likes of Pokemon, Super Mario Maker, and evergreen titles such as Mario Kart 7.
