eShop Nintendo Switch

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold more than 10,000,000 digital units

It isn’t often that Famitsu shares worldwide sales numbers for something, let alone digital sales numbers, but this is an exception. Famitsu is reporting that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has surpassed 10,000,000 units via the Nintendo Switch eShop. It was not stated what the exact number is.

  1. The main man in heaven has blessed Nintendo.

    They now have enough money to make the next three animal crossings.

    F=MA.

  2. Probably an influx of all digital stuff went up considering the quarantine regulations… plus, AC came out right when regulations started…
    Not trying to deflate the accomplishment — just a bit of speculation on what played a part in sales. :)

    1. You’re wrong. Nintendo confirmed half of all animal crossing sales were digital, as of May 15th. It’s less than a month later, and with 10 million digital sales being announced, I think it’s safe to say New Horizons is sitting around the 20 million mark. That’s a crazy amount. Pokemon was at 17.37 million as of March 31st. The switch’s best selling game, Mario Kart, sits at 24.77 million. Smash is #2 with 18.84 million. Animal Crossing hasn’t even been out for 3 months, I think it has potential to become number 1, given enough time.

      1. No, I’m just saying that there were likely a bunch of digital sales because (starting near the end of march) a lot of people couldn’t go outside or were scared to. Of course people could have still ordered physical copies and a bit people may have even went out to buy them (if their stores were open). :)
