Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is Nintendo’s biggest success of the year. No one could have predicted that it would have sold over 26 million copies in just a few months. Nintendo wants that success to continue, with president Shuntaro Furukawa stating during the company’s financial results conference call that with its first year-end sales season approaching, “we hope even more people will take that opportunity to purchase the game.”

Those that already have Animal Crossing: New Horizons can look forward to more content in the future. Furukawa said Nintendo “will continue to implement in-game events and would like to create a situation where consumers will keep enjoying the game for a long time.”

His full words:

“The sales pace of Animal Crossing: New Horizons has eased compared to the period around its initial release, but among all our titles, this one continues to maintain high sales levels. As I mentioned in response to a previous question, this title is also driving Nintendo Switch hardware sales in Asian markets, which have relatively smaller sales numbers than the markets in Japan, the U.S. and Europe. Going forward, we will continue to implement in-game events and would like to create a situation where consumers will keep enjoying the game for a long time. This will be the first year-end sales season for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and we hope even more people will take that opportunity to purchase the game.”

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is expected to receive a major update later in November. News about that should be provided soon.
