Nintendo just updated their sales figures and unsurprisingly, Animal Crossing New Horizons is not doing too badly. And again, the numbers we are going to tell you are from June 30, which means that the game has had time to do even better in over a month.
Tom Nook is happy
As of June 30, 2020, Animal Crossing New Horizons has sold a total of 22.4 million ‘copies which makes it the second best-selling game on the Switch behind Mario Kart 8 Deluxe , unbeatable for the moment with its 26.74 million copies. As of April 30, New Horizons was at 13.4 million which means, if you’re good at math, there were 9 million more sales in the next two months.
According to Oscar Lemaire , the specialist in numbers, the game has reached 7.15 million in Japan. Which makes it the third best-selling game in the history of the country. In front of him, we find the trio Pokémon Blue / Red / Green at 10.23 million and the duo Pokémon Gold / Silver at 7.3 million which he has already probably exceeded in time of this article.
We understand better why Nintendo seems to rather want to support its new goose that lays the golden eggs with regular updates , instead of reassuring on the end of the year of the Switch which we remind you will have to be satisfied with a Pikmin 3 Deluxe announced yesterday at random on Twitter.
