Animal Crossing: New Horizons A ‘Huge Hit In The UK’

By Zuhaad Ali

It’s been two days since the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and we have to admit, this game might just be the best-selling game for Nintendo this year. For that, we’ll have to wait and see. Speaking of sales, ACNH is shattering records in the UK right now.

This report comes from Christopher Dring ( publisher) saying that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been “a huge hit in the UK.” According to the tweet, this new installment is seeing a significant 3.5 increase in sales as compared to the last Animal Crossing game – New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS.

“Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a huge hit in the UK. Its sales are 3.5 times bigger than the launch of the last main game (on 3DS),” Dring said. “Its launch week is bigger than the launch of all the other Animal Crossing games combined (inc spin-offs). And that’s even without digital.”

While we don’t have any official numbers for digital sales as of now, it is pretty clear that the game will be the best-selling title for this month.
