We have brand new updated sales numbers for Animal Crossing: New Horizons today giving a closer look at the game’s initial performance, although the data is still quite limited!
According to the latest Famitsu sales numbers for the month of March, Animal Crossing: New Horizons managed to sell an impressive 2,680,000 physical box copies in Japan throughout the month.
For those keeping track, there were only 10 days of sales included in this period beginning from March 20th, so this really only gives us a small peek at the performance so far. Plus, this does not include any digital copies, which are sure to have been a popular choice right now.
These numbers are our latest update since the news of 1.88 million Animal Crossing: New Horizons copies sold during the game’s first three days opening weekend not long ago. Unfortunately, we really don’t have any other solid information to go off for sales numbers in terms of digital copies or sales in other countries around the world.
As for when we might get those extended numbers, it’s likely at this point that we’ll have to wait until Nintendo’s next scheduled earnings release for shareholders set for May 7th. The information released is likely to still only cover the last ten days of March though unfortunately.
Regardless, there’s no doubt that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is already a smashing worldwide success just by seeing the incredible amount of attention on social media over the past few weeks. The future is clearly bright for the franchise and further updates in the future will only cement that.
