The Pokemon phenomenon manages to capture the heart and soul of millions once again.
According to Famitsu.com, Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver have sold 1.5 million copies in Japan in after just two days of release.
The titles are remakes of Pokemon Gold and Silver, the second game in the series released on the Game Boy Color back in 2000. The DS version features updated graphics similar to Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, and features new apps such as the pedometer.
Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver are scheduled for a spring 2010 release in North America.
