Madness.

I wonder how high this game will go.



I'm going out on a limb and say at least 5.1 million. If any analyst company wants to hire me, my inbox is open.



Need something off Play-Asia? http://www.play-asia.com/

Not surprising. I've seen loads of people that've said they play it.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Absolutely insane. And this is without Digital and it's showing no signs of slowing down.

Yeah, this game will do 10 million in Japan LT, that's pretty mucha given now. Wonder how high it can climb. Congrats AC :D



Vote the Mayor for Mayor!

Animal Crossing is selling at an amazing rate. The real question is how much has it sold when you also include digital copies? I'll be very interested in Nintendo's next financial report to see the total. Their last report only included 12 days worth of sales.



It will easy become the biggest game ever in Japan by the end of the year.
With digital should be around ~6.5mln right now, by the end of the year could be close to 9 million.



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 11m, XB1 4m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, 9m PS4 and 3m XB1, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

I personally don't understand the appeal of this game, but for those who are enjoying it, I am happy it's doing well!



Absolute monster. Will most definitely be top seller of the year in Japan and most likely worldwide as well.
