Nintendo reports that Pokemon sales continue to soar. Sales of Nintendo's Pokemon videogames for the first five months of the year are up 220 percent from the same period last year. For the year, Nintendo expects total revenues to top $3 billion in North America alone. "The popularity of Pokemon continues to amaze the industry," said Nintendo's Gail Tilden, "all signs point to it being the number-one entertainment franchise again this year." To fuel the flames, Nintendo plans on releasing four new games, and new animated feature film, and hundreds of licensed products.
