Sales of the game have surprised company executives and have been a strong boost for the Nintendo Switch digital market.

There is no doubt that one of the most interesting phenomena of video games so far this year is Animal Crossing: New Horizons, an anticipated game that, in addition to welcoming the numerous fans of fans of the franchise, also received new users who gave their relaxing formula a chance in the midst of confinement.

The exclusive game ofNintendo SwitchIt quickly became one of the best sellers on the platform and broke the record that Black Ops 4 had to become the best digital premiere in history. The impressive figures that the game has had have even impressed thenintendo executives, surpassing in onlysix weekstheirtotal sales expectations.

The Nintendo president also confirmed that the50% of game sales come from the digital marketin regions likeEurope, Japan and the United States, thus constituting one of the pillars in the increase in digital sales of the company.
