Early sales reports are in for Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the UK, revealing that the game is off to a fantastic start.

The launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons ended up being 3.5 times bigger than New Leaf. Even more impressive is that the launch week was bigger than the release of all other Animal Crossing games combined, including spin-offs. Digital is not included.

It goes without saying, but Animal Crossing: New Horizons was almost certainly one of the best-selling game in the UK last week. We should have the full charts soon.

Prompted by this topic, Sakurai went on to say:

It’s tough to believe, but it’s been seven years since the release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It’s been even longer than that if you played the initial Japanese version. Animal Crossing fans have been clamoring for a new, proper entry for quite awhile now, and the wait was made especially tough since New Horizons was originally planned to launch in 2019.
