I think the real story here is Animal Crossing is very quickly approaching the 5 million mark. How often has that happened before? It's already exceeded every Dragon Quest game and is now in the top echelon of sales. The highest selling game is Super Mario Bros at 6.8 million copies, Pokemon series 1 sold 7.8 million, but that's including all three volumes
