I think that makes New Horizons the second best-selling console game ever in Japan, behind only Super Mario Bros at 6.7 million sold. It's also in the Top 10 including handheld games. Animal Crossing: Wild World is one of the only games ahead of it, at 5.067 million total, so that record is going to be passed soon. After that, it's all 2D Mario and Pokemon.

But, with digital sales I think it is a given now. Must be around 7 million at least!
