Animal Crossing: New Horizons became the best-selling game in Japanese history


With over 10 million copies sold, Animal Crossing: New Horizons became the best-selling game in Japan, dethroning the popular Super Mario Bros.

There has been a significant change in the Japanese video game market when it comes to best-selling games in history. So far, the throne has been held by Super Mario Bros., with 6.81 million copies sold for the then NES console. That game came out 38 years ago and has held the record all this time - almost four decades. But 38 years later the throne was taken over by the popular Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch, with 10 million copies sold, in Japan alone.

Some take that right away, claiming that the Pokémon Red, Green, and Blue games have sold 10.23 million copies for the Game Boy. But since not all versions came out at the same time, the cumulative sales results are still not recognized. When it comes to listing on the world market, Animal Crossing is not bad there either - 37.62 million copies of the game have been sold, which puts them on the Nintendo list of games just behind the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game, which has sold more than 43 million so far. copies.

Recall, these are not the only record changes for Nintendo this week. The switch surpassed the Nintendo Wii in the number of copies sold recently.
