Nintendo of Europe has confirmed that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become the fastest-selling Nintendo game ever launched in Europe.
Since originally releasing for Nintendo Switch on 20th March 2020, more than seven million copies of the game have been sold across the continent.
That means that more than one-third of the over 20 million Nintendo Switch owners in Europe have bought the game and signed up for the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway package.
“We’re truly grateful that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been embraced by so many players across Europe,” thanked Nintendo of Europe president Stephan Bole. “Animal Crossing has long been a popular franchise in Europe, and its continued growth is due to the love of our fans for this unique series.”
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
