Animal Crossing: New Horizons was the best-selling retail game in France in 2020, according to Oscar Lemaire of the French sales site Ludostrie. 

Lemaire posted a list of the best-selling game in each year dating back to 1997. This is the first time since 2013 the best-selling game was not FIFA. 2014 through 2019 saw FIFA 15 to FIFA 20 as the best-selling game in France. This is also the first time a Nintendo game topped the charts since 2008 When Mario Kart Wii was number one. 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for the Nintendo Switch.

Goddamn, it actually beat FIFA. Seems like it's physical only which might be to its advantage, but then again considering when AC launched it probably has a larger digital ratio than most switch games even now.

Actually one casual game is an exclusive to 1 console. While the other is a multiplatform.
