Pronouncing Animal Crossing: Fresh Horizons has been a tidy success for Nintendo would perhaps seemingly be an understatement. Quiet topping the UK charts in 2021, Twitter lately revealed it as their most talked-about game for 2020 and it also turned Metacritic’s high-rated Nintendo game for final year.
Undeniably, Fresh Horizons has been an tremendous factor in pushing Swap console gross sales, so we cannot be too stunned that it is also became France’s high seller for 2020. It is a local previously occupied by EA’s annual FIFA entries, which were France’s good video games between 2014-2019, meaning Fresh Horizons has broken a successful 6-year bound.
It also marks Nintendo’s first game to claim this crown since Mario Kart Wii in 2008. Earlier than that, we’re attempting the entire manner again to Pokémon Silver in 2001, as Call of Responsibility and Pro Evolution Soccer also dominated for a really long time.
In another year, it will’ve been extra unsightly to see FIFA lose that space, however by September alone, Fresh Horizons’ had sold 26.04 million copies worldwide, a mere six months after launch. It also turned the fastest game to hit 6 million physical gross sales in Japan again in November, so seeing this success spread to other international locations wasn’t particularly surprising.
