Animal Crossing is one of Nintendo's most successful game series. The current branch for Nintendo Switch, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, has already sold millions of times worldwide. Now the game has reached another sales milestone. New Horizons went over the counter five million times in Japan alone, as Famitsu now reported.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons has had consistent success since it launched in March. The sales shortage has now flattened, but is still rising steadily. Like Famitsu* Now reported, the Life-Sim for Nintendo Switch has sold over five million times in Japan alone. In terms of total sales, this is a huge success. And then there is this small but important detail ...
Animal Crossing: New Horizons exceeds expectations
Sales are increasing - in Japan and around the world. Five million copies went over the counter, literally, because only the physical sales versions are meant. Then there are the digital sales, which should drive the figures noticeably upwards.
It was reported last month that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold over ten million digital games since its launch. It's not a surprise, but the game exceeds Nintendo's expectations. The Life-Sim has proven to be a real draft horse for the Nintendo Switch - and should be partly responsible for that good hardware sales .
The end is unlikely to be reached yet, among other things because Nintendo regularly adds new content. This will not only please fans who are already actively playing, but also those who are thinking of buying Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch. Every month there are currently new updates that make the game more extensive and thus also have a positive effect on the price-performance ratio.
Possibly - but that's just our assessment - sales will pick up again as soon as the Nintendo Switch will be available in stores again in large numbers from summer is. Nintendo recently announced that production would normalize by the summer.
