Everyone knew Animal Crossing: New Horizons was going to be a huge game. No surprising nobody, the game has sold millions of copies, digital and physical. What was surprising, these are the different ways the players used the game in a meta way. Fashion designers have used Animal Crossing to put their clothing lines available for fans and politicians have used it to reach followers and voters. It seems that the silver lining of the CVIV-19 crisis is that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has reached many more people than Nintendo originally thought.
In a Question-Response Segment of the Nintendo Financial Results Call this week, President Shun taro Kurosawa spoke about the length of his projection, Animal Crossing. Translated by Nintendo Everything, Kurosawa said: The initial sales of Animal Crossing: New Horizons have greatly exceeded our expectations. We were aimed at the current sales figures for the life of the game, since the fans have been waiting for this game for so long, but everything happened at a much faster than expected pace. So what it essentially means is that the total number of copies they expected to sell has already been achieved.
Kurosawa also stated that the ratio of physical sales to digital sales is divided into the environment. Local guidelines for social distancing could have influenced the increase in digital sales. Although they are released only for two months, the only Nintendo Switch games for sale Animal Crossing: New Horizons are Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Pokémon: Sword / Shield. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
