Since Nintendo’s last financial update, the title has sold 3.64 million units, cementing itself as second place in the top 10 best selling Switch games. According to Twitter data during the first half of 2020 New Horizons was the most talked about game on Twitter globally, with Fate/Grand Order coming in second after being the most talked-about game in 2019.

The previous free update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons was back in April and it brought a host of changes such as new villagers to the island, added some fun seasonal events, and opened up a new wing in the museum. Animal Crossing: New Horizons was recently featured in the Financial Times, an actual real life publication, after some severe in-game interest rate cuts from Tom Nook.
