News business Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the best-selling physical game in France in 2020
Sold more than 26 million copies worldwide, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the most sold physical game in France during the year 2020.
Sure Twitter, journalist Oscar Lemaire specifies: “This is the first time in 7 years that it is not a top FIFA, and the first time in 12 years that it is not a FIFA / COD / GTA.” In 2020, Animal Crossing: New Horizons climbs to first place in the ranking of physical sales in France. In the columns of Figaro, Philippe Lavoué, general manager of Nintendo France, said to himself “happy to have helped the confined people to feel less alone and to escape mentally“.
The scores are based on the ranking established by the Gfk institute, those for digital sales are not available. To obtain the precise result of sales of the game in France, it will be necessary to wait until the next SELL assessment, in February. But we can already notice the strong influence of the game on the sales of its console. Journalist Chloé Woitier indicates that the installed base of Switch in France in 2019 was 3.3 million copies. Today, there are 4.7 million copies, which marks a sales jump of over 40%.
In 2020, at the head of sales, we also find Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Ring Fit Adventure and 51 Worldwide Games, a compilation of traditional games which surprisingly did better than Hyrule Warriors: The Age of Bane and Paper Mario: The Origami King.
