Animal Crossing: New Horizons would have sold more than 10 million digitally copies, according to a Famitsu report. The latest number of Nintendo sales indicated that the life simulator has sold more than 13 million units during its first six weeks.
When the figure has been shared, however, it has not been mentioned how many of these copies have been retail and how much via the Nintendo Eshop. If this report should be confirmed, most of the copies sold would be digital, an unprecedented result for Nintendo.
Such digital performance is probably due to CIVID-19 blockages that have made digital purchases the only viable option in many territories when the title was published on March 20 in the middle of the epidemic.
This did not stop animal Crossing from stimulating switch sales, because the console sold more units in the game launch window in Japan than when it was official in 2017.
Nintendo has already announced officially that New Horizons had exceeded its sales goals in terms of sales, which occurred a few months after its initial launch.
That's why the game is currently supported with current events, which now include the marriage season with exclusive rewards.
