In times like these I always remember the wise words "that niche shit won't sell LOL".

When Animal Crossing came to the west a lot of people considered it too niche to sell. Now it rivals Poke'mon and Smash Bros. in sales!

I think the quarantine has a lot to do with Animal Crossing's success, I wasn't planning on buying it, but I bought it because it's either that or I bang my head against the wall from boredom. I'm sure it's the same for other people as well.

@Liquid_faction He's talking about the AC series as a whole. It also sold like crazy on the DS and 3DS.

I didn't expect it to be that successful. Congrats. Eventually I may give it another try.
