Rumour: Animal Crossing: New Horizons Has Reportedly Been Downloaded More Than 10 Million Times

A recent post by Famitsu suggests worldwide downloads for Animal Crossing: New Horizons have now surpassed 10 million.

This follows on from Nintendo's fiscal year earnings report in May, which revealed the newest entry in the life simulation series - at that point - had sold 11.77 million copies in just 12 days, giving it the "best start ever" for a Switch title. It got even better when a chart released by the company illustrated how the game shifted 13.41 million copies in the first six weeks.

Around the same time as Nintendo released its original sales figures, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa explained how initial sales had "greatly exceeded" the Japanese company's expectations. In fact, it sold so well, it had already surpassed lifetime targets.

Here's a recap, courtesy of a translation by Oni_Dino of Nintendo Everything:

The initial sales of Animal Crossing: New Horizons have greatly exceeded our expectations. We were targeting the current sales numbers for the game’s lifetime considering fans have been waiting such a long time for this game, but it all happened at a much faster rate than we anticipated.
At the rate Animal Crossing: New Horizons is selling, it wouldn't be a surprise if it catches up to Pokémon Sword and Shield, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (which are all nearing the 20 million sales) before the end of this year.
