Shogakukan printed more than 1 million copies of the January 2018 issue (seen right) of its Coro Coro Comics magazine, which shipped on Friday. The issue is the first issue of the magazine to print more than 1 million copies in two years.
The issue contains a download code for the "Emperor Gear" item set for the Splatoon 2 game, as well as download codes for the "Lucky Egg" and "Nugget" items for the Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon games.
Shogakukan launched the magazine with its first issue on April 15, 1977, and it collected chapters of the Doraemon manga. Beginning in 1979, the magazine became a monthly publication. In 1997, Coro Coro Comics had printed as many as 2 million copies for a single issue. The magazine has published manga for other franchises, such as Pokémon, Kaitō Joker, Yo-kai Watch, Puzzle & Dragons, and 100% Pascal-sensei, all of which also have tie-in anime.
