European gamers had to wait a few extra days to get their hands on Pokémon Sun and Moon, but they seized the opportunity once it arrived. Earlier this week we reported that the twin 3DS games had the biggest UK launch in Nintendo history, but the games' popularity didn't stop there.

Nintendo has announced today that Pokémon Sun and Moon have also set a new record for the biggest ever launch for a Nintendo game in Europe with over 1.5 million units sold already. By comparison, the games moved over 1.9 million units in Japan at launch. It looks like Sun and Moon are a hit around the world! Are you one of the millions currently experiencing the fun of the Alola region?
