Digital has changed drastically for Nintendo in the last 6-8months
1st to note is the voucher program, it help boost digital sales significantly. That said AC is a game much more oriented for buying it digitally (having it with you at all times) as well as the situation now COVID19 even with 1.9mil people buying the games
lastly the games digital ratio have all been 20%-30% lately with 2 of them starting off with 40%+ digital ratios
The voucher program was a limited offer to Nintendo Online members first which isn't even covering half the sold market. Then you still need to buy the thing. Which I doubt the numbers were overwhelmingly great since Nintendo back off the offer in most region already.
It's influence is a marginal print.
As for your last claims. First, the Japanese market which is what I am referring my first post with, isn't still wild in the adoption of digital video games on Nintendo console market. Most of the digital sales numbers confirmed the drop digital adoption after the first few weeks of release. It drops fast which means in the long term. The digital ratio actually loses ground against physical.
Lastly, I'd be interested to know the names of these two 1st party Nintendo games with a digital ratio of 40% and where you found that info.
