Early reports regarding Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ sales in the UK are definitely impressive. Not only was the launch 3.5 times bigger than New Leaf – the series’ previous mainline entry – but its launch week was bigger than the release of all other Animal Crossing games combined, including spin-offs.

We have a couple of other interesting tidbits now as well. First, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is already a third of the way to matching the entire lifetime sales of New Leaf (boxed). Also, if you count every single #1 boxed game in the UK this year before Animal Crossing (eleven of these titles in total) and combine them, they still don’t get close to the launch week of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

So yes, Animal Crossing: New Horizons couldn’t be doing much better in the UK. It’s likely experiencing similar success in other territories, though we don’t have concrete sales data at this time.
