Famitsu’s Japanese chart figures are now in for 20th – 26th April, revealing that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has smashed yet another record – and this one’s a biggie.

The game sold an estimated 283,913 copies in Japan last week, taking its lifetime sales total in the region to a mighty 3.89 million. This means that in terms of physical sales in Japan (Nintendo doesn’t regularly provide its digital sales data, unfortunately) New Horizons is now the best-selling game on Nintendo Switch, overtaking Super Smash Bros. Ultimate which currently sits at an estimated 3.66 million physical copies sold.

Unsurprisingly, Animal Crossing also remained at number one this week, comfortably ahead of new release, Trials of Mana.
