Animal Crossing: New Horizons Becomes the Fastest-Selling Switch GameMay 7, 2020
On Nintendo’s official chart of best-selling Switch games, it’s in 7th place, but those subsequent sales likely put it above Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, which had 11.91 million sales at last count. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remains the Switch’s biggest seller by a distance, at just shy of 25 million copies sold.New Horizons is now already the best-selling game in the Animal Crossing franchise, surpassing Animal Crossing: New Leaf’s 12.55 million lifetime sales.
We awarded New Horizons a 9/10 review, calling it “an expanded, polished, next-generation reboot of a classic Nintendo game that’s full of surprises.”
