Animal Crossing: New Horizons Sells Over 31 Million Units, On Track to Become Best Selling Switch Title

Nintendo have just released their financial earnings for the Q3. So many games have seen great sales, and New Horizons has now sold over 31,000,000 units! It's near certain that during the next earnings, New Horizons will be the best selling Switch title to date. More details below!

The previous financial report from September 30th had the game sitting at just over 24,000,000 units sold, and thanks to the holiday season, the game sold an incredibly 9mil units in the months of October - December 2020.

The game is still rivalling Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which is now sitting just short of 33.5mil units. However, New Horizons has seen more growth with each financial report. We expect New Horizons to take the top spot by either Q4, or the start of the next FY at the latest.

To note, Animal Crossing: New Horizons only released in March 2020 and has sold phenomenally well in such a short time. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe came out in April 2017 and has sold almost the same amount in almost 4 years...

Switch hardware has now outsold the Nintendo 3DS, which is just short of 80mil units sold. Hopefully with these good sales, a number of highly anticipated franchises will make their way to the Switch. You can view the full earnings here.
