Geo is one of Japan’s leading companies that operate in the buying and selling of games, DVDs, CDs, and more. The company does a weekly ranking of top-10 video game software, and this week has a special treat with Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ debut.

Here are the top-10 best-selling games at GEO shops from March 16 through March 22, 2020:

  1. (New) Animal Crossing: New Horizons [Switch] – Nintendo 3/20/2020

  10. (#12) Super Smash Bros. Ultimate [Switch] – Nintendo 12/07/2018

It comes as no surprise to see Animal Crossing: New Horizons crush the sales chart at #1 in its debut. However, GEO shared some additional details on New Horizons’ debut. Not only has Animal Crossing: New Horizons charted as the number-one best-selling Switch software of all-time at GEO shops, it broke the record of the best top-selling video game software of the week, of all-time. Unfortunately, we don’t have the numbers as GEO doesn’t provide them for their rankings, but it’s still quite the feat to break a top-seller’s record for the retailer that was founded in 1989.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch. Not only has it topped GEO’s charts, but the game also dominated the UK charts in its debut.
