BOLD PREDICTION: Animal Crossing New Horizons will sell 12mil Lifetime in Japan!!! O.o
First of all yes that means beating the almighty Pokémon RB that sold just over 8.2mil copies. Yes the last highest selling game was AC New Leaf which is above 5.79mil in Japan (2012 release). I understand I’m asking for twice as much sales compared to New Leaf and 50% more than Pokémon RB... but it wouldn’t be BOLD without it :)
Let’s start off with how it’ll become a 12mil seller, I expect NSW to keep selling for years and sell over 28mil as of this post, which would mean between 40-45% attach ratio as an estimate.
It’s currently at 3611k with retail after 5 weeks. Demand isn’t slowing down and most people are pinning it between Pokémon RB and GS in sales (7.2mil-8.2mil Lifetime). But I believe it’ll continue to sell throughout this whole year and surpass both games by years end to start. Next week NH should surpass NL First 4 quarter sales which is shown below! Here is my prediction....
Sell thru famitsu
Q1 2287k (8weeks and Holiday)
Q1 2608k (2weeks)
Q2 1003k (3weeks so far)
Tbone5189 prediction ACNH (shipment+Digital)
Q2 2800k (yes I’m serious)
Y1 8300k (surpassing Pokémon RG)
Lastly I think this game was the fastest selling game in its first 5 weeks...
2.557.779 / NEW
828.580 / 3.386.358
374.589 / 3.761.217
231.638 / 3.992.855
168.541 / 4.161.397
And that’s all folks! What do y’all think? Anybody on board for team 12mil o.O
let me know your thoughts... thank you for the read fellow members :)
