Update

Today, Nintendo announced that over 100 000 packs of Animal Crossing amiibo card have been sold in Australia: that’s over 300 000 cards in total. Together, Europe and Australia account for 1.3 million of the 28.9 million amiibo cards sold worldwide.

Last week, during the usual meeting with investors (which always follows the presentation of the latest financial results), Tatsumi Kimishima talked about sales of amiibo. He revealed that a total of 28.9 million cards have been sold worldwide, which are all from the various Animal Crossing series (since there hasn’t been any other type of cards so far).

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to know how many packs have been sold, since they don’t include the same amount of cards in all regions (with North America having the most). But today, Nintendo announced that over 1 million packs of Animal Crossing amiibo cards have been sold so far in Europe.

Here’s an illustration Nintendo shared for the occasion:

While Nintendo doesn’t specify it, we can assume the “1 million” number includes bundle packs.

In other words, that means that over 3 million cards have been sold in Europe. Since 28.9 million cards have been sold worldwide, that means that the vast majority of sales come from North America and Japan. Unfortunately, Nintendo hasn’t given any concrete sales data for amiibo cards in any other region. Of course, you also have to take into account the fact that packs include 6 cards in North America!
