Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Pikmin 3 Deluxe

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a massive success. It has already sold over 26 million copies worldwide despite releasing this year, and has helped move a ton of Switch hardware.

While speaking about the game during a financial results conference call, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa shared an interesting tidbit. Interestingly, Furukawa said that “Pikmin 3 Deluxe has frequently been chosen as the next title after Animal Crossing: New Horizons by many consumers, especially in Japan.” It makes sense that Nintendo wants Switch owners who started out with Animal Crossing “to become aware of and play as many different titles as possible, regardless of whether those titles are new or evergreen.”

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Marshall

Blue Planet Aquarium in Cheshire, UK analyzed keyword search data sourced from Google for every villager, furnishing, houseware, and clothing item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. In the process, we’re able to learn about the most / least popular villagers in the game and more.

Among the highlights is that Marshall was determined to be the most popular character “by far, beating the next most popular by 81,000 avg. monthly searches”. Sadly, Clyde was the least popular with just 590.

As another interesting note, 60 percent of the top 20 most sought-after characters are female and 70 percent of the least popular are male. Based on the data, cats are the most popular villager species (25 percent of the top 20) whereas in contrast, Frogs are the least popular overall. Although the most popular personality types were ‘Normal’ and ‘Lazy’, the least popular were ‘Cranky’, ‘Jock’, and ‘Snooty’.

Here’s the full set of data:
