There seems to be no stopping Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as the latest Japanese sales numbers from Famitsu show the game has now surpassed 4 million lifetime sales for physical copies in its home country. That’s a fantastic showing, and makes up a decent portion of the game’s nearly 14 million worldwide sales — a mark these and other countries’ sales have likely passed. 

When it comes to this last reported week, from April 27th to May 10th, it moved 455,299 of those, taking the top spot for sales once again. Keeping pace as best it can and claiming second is none other than Ring Fit Adventure, which has risen to the occasion during quarantine. Stock is limited and demand is higher than ever, so hopefully this is a sign of an impending restock in the West for the fitness game.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
