Animal Crossing is going to speed by Mario Kart in sales so fast. I'm beginning to think the Switch shortage has little to do with Corona and everything to do with Animal Crossing, finally realizing it's killer app potential.

Did animal crossing just sold 22.4 million in 3 month and 10 days !!!

Damn Animal Crossing is a beast. Second best selling game in only a few months. And Breatn of the Wild has not only held its own against Pokémon, the sales gap between the two actually got bigger. I thought Pokémon would pass BotW.

When I saw the Animal Crossing sales I literally said aloud "Oh my ******* god!"

wow wow wow....those Animal Crossing sales. And given the neverending updates that game has I just can't see these legs getting short any time soon. No matter when you arrive to your island it will always feel fresh and fun and those who have never played it will have so many hours of pure enjoyment ready to unlock. Even those of us who have been playing it nonstop since launch are still enthralled. Mario Kart better have a blue shell or two at the ready or it won't stand a chance. Literally a third of Switch owners own this game, and that is likely to continue to grow. What I'm most curious about is how many people who downplayed the idea of getting the game when it first released have broken down and picked it up and are having a heck of a time. Don't be shy, you can tell us.

Oh wow Xenoblade DE sold 1.32 mill that's surprising

Glad to hear it as someone who has loved the series since Xenogears. T2, Soraya, and the rest of the crew deserve the success.
