Pokemon Black White Screenshot 300The Pokemon Company has a huge hit on their hands, and it hasn’t even been released yet. The latest reports from Japan say that over 1.08 million people have placed preorders for their copies of Pokemon Black and White.

Pokemon Black and White don’t come out until September 18, 2010, but that hasn’t stopped Japanese DS owners from racing to stores to make sure they’ll have a copy on launch day. Stores have been taking preorders for the game for about a month now, so the fact that over one million have been taken is pretty impressive.

Unfortunately, the data doesn’t state how many people preordered Pokemon Black and how many people preordered Pokemon White. I know it doesn’t really matter, since they’re both basically the same game, but it would have been an interesting information nugget.

If you want to join in the fun, you can always preorder too! Pokemon Black and White costs about ¥4,800 ($56) if you want to import it. Of course, the games already have a North American and European early 2011 release window, so if you can be patient, it’d probably be better to just wait.
