Might as well predict New Horizons will be the best-selling Switch game ever.

This is actually a really real possibility...

Switch!!!

When you look at games like Smash Ultimate (which outsold New Horizons in their respective North American openings) having 17 million lifetime, I'm thinking this is laughable. Twelve million in Japan alone is New Leaf's global lifetime. Might as well predict New Horizons will be the best-selling Switch game ever.

I have a feeling that will backfire spectacularly and AC:NH will become the bestselling Switch game ever - and break that bolder prediction.



Animal crossing isn’t outselling Mario Kart 8. It’ll probably be the second best selling game but MK8D will for sure be ahead of it by a good amount too

In North America, MK8D will win for sure. In Europe however, not so much, that's much more of a tossup. And in Japan, it's guaranteed that AC:NH will win out.

So in short, it's not at all guaranteed that Mario Kart will win out here in the end. However, I'm positive that both will be on the first and second step of the podium of best-selling Switch titles. The Question is who's on top out fo the two.

Im still not 100% sold on AC outselling Smash Bros.  SSBU is showing nice legs especially in NA and it still has more DLC coming out which can ignite interest.

It’s not a Toss up in Europe. The only main region ACNH will win is japan.MK8D will let it out like it does every other game 



In terms of Japan, I'm with tbone on this, Animal Crossing is in an unparallel situation. I'm actually more bullish on it's performance this year.

Prediction:
Q1: 5M Shipped + Digital
Q2: 7M Shipped + Digital
Q3: 8M Shipped + Digital
Q4: 10M Shipped + Digital



3 more days until we know the offical first two weeks of ACNH. Maybe even more if Nintendo wants to share.

I wouldn't be so sure about Europe. But I guess we'll find out with Nintendo's quarterly reports.
