Animal Crossing New Horizons has a monster launch in Japan as Switch overtakes Wii
Earlier this week we saw Animal Crossing: New Horizons topple Doom Eternal in the UK, and now results for Japan are in – and it’s a massive result.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold, physically in stores, a massive 1.88 million copies in just it’s first three days on sale. This only includes physical games, not download cards and does not include digital sales. The previous record was held by Pokémon Sword and Shield at 1.36 million – smashed it!
Animal Crossing also helped Nintendo shift a massive 392,576 Switch and Switch Lite units, this is more units than when the Switch launched in 2017!
To put a cherry on top, the Nintendo Switch has now outsold the Wii in Japan in just three years. Amazing stuff really.
