We knew previously that Animal Crossing: New Horizons was selling pretty damn well, to put it mildly. But a new report details that Nintendo's smash hit game has crossed 10 million units sold on the eShop worldwide.
This is based on a new report from Famitsu (thanks, DomsPlaying). The report simply states that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has passed the digital milestone of selling 10 million units worldwide through the Switch's eShop.
Of course, New Horizons selling remarkably well isn't exactly a revelation. Back when the game first launched in March 2020, it sold more copies in one week than all previous Animal Crossing games had in their first week on the market, combined. That's pretty astounding, and this record likely wasn't even including digital sales of New Horizons.
Then, after a total of six weeks on the market, New Horizons had managed to sell over 13 million units worldwide. This combined number of units from Europe, North America, and Japan were enough to put New Horizons ahead of the lifetime sales of both Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Wild World, both released for the Nintendo DS. This 13 million total sales figure is actually the last we heard from Nintendo on total sales of New Horizons, which was back in May.
As sales of New Horizons continue to roll on, so too do the in-game events. We're currently in the midst of Wedding Season in New Horizons, where longtime lovers Cyrus and Reese are finally getting married.
