Today’s Daily news: sales data for Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the United Kingdom, but also…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons – UK Sales data
According to sales data from Gfk, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is off to a fantastic start in the United Kingdom. It didn’t just sell more than any previous Animal Crossing game in the country at launch, it sold more than all previous games combined at launch… including spin-offs! It sold 3.5 times more than Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Nintendo 3DS, which previously held the record of best-selling entry at launch.
What’s more, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the biggest launch ever for a Nintendo Switch game, second biggest if you combine sales of Pokémon Sword and Shield. And that’s not all: Nintendo do not share digital data, so all of this does not factor in digital sales. Hopefully, Nintendo will have a press release later this week, sharing data including digital sales (though there most likely will not be a regional breakdown).
In the United Kingdom, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was the best-selling game at retail last week. In total, over 475 000 games were sold in the country, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons took a fairly big chunk of that.
