The chart above highlights how sales of New Horizons compare to other Animal Crossing games. As you can see, it’s already the best-selling game in the series. (Fun fact: Animal Crossing: New Horizons has already surpassed Pokémon Sword and Shield in Japanese sales). It should be interesting to see if the game can outsell the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Pokémon worldwide.

We also recently reported that Animal Crossing: New Horizons was Twitter’s most talked about game in Japan. In addition to this, high fashion brands like Valentino and Marc Jacob have created their very own clothing lines for players to download in the game.

In case you missed it, the Nintendo Switch console reached a new milestone of 55 million units worldwide, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons played a big role in that.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for the Nintendo Switch.
