Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold a whopping 13.41 million copies

The pandemic really helped driving the sales.

That's a lot of bells


Saying Animal Crossing: New Horizons is successful is like saying Simone Biles is a great gymnast. Yeah, we know. We knew it would be a hit even before the world was stuck at home with nothing better to do than shake tress and gross Blathers out with bugs. And while we've had a lot of unofficial numbers since its launch, Nintendo finally gave us a look at just how well the game did since its late March launch and boy howdy has it sold some copies.

According to the latest Nintendo financial reports, New Horizons has shipped an impressive 13.41 million copies physically and digitally in its first six weeks. To compare, best sellers like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pok้mon Sword/Shield have managed to move 18.84 million units and 17.37 million units respectively.

With these numbers, New Horizons is already the best selling game in the franchise and close to being the best selling game on the Switch. And with the game still relatively new, there's no telling how high its final number will climb.

I am so happy to not be in the group who bought this. I don't see the appeal.

I do appreciate a good time-waster but I agree about the social media part. The more people talk about it on social media, the less I want to play it. Not necessarily because of the game itself, but because I don't wanna be like those people who are worrying day and night about tulip trading prices.
