on October 28, 2016 7:33 AM

After the release of Pokemon GO this summer and the year-long celebrations of the series’ 20th anniversary, anticipation for the next chapter of Pokemon is at an all-time high, with the upcoming Sun & Moon already breaking records.

Nintendo of America’s Twitter account revealed that alongside the news that the game demo for Sun & Moon became the most downloaded demo ever for the company, the company also announced that Pokemon Sun & Moon have become the most pre-ordered titles in Nintendo’s history.

No specific numbers or figures have been given by the company at this time, though the success of Pokemon GO and the marketing push behind Pokemon‘s 20th anniversary celebrations likely may have contributed to the sales push for Sun & Moon.

Pokemon Sun & Moon will release for Nintendo 3DS on November 18th, 2016.
