Animal Crossing: New Horizons had a stellar launch last week all over the world, but especially in Japan. It sold 1.8 million units in its first three days, becoming the biggest ever Switch launch in the region, and counting digital sales, that number exceeded 2.5 million. In its second week, as per Famitsu’s weekly sales charts, it has obviously dropped off, but still amassed extremely impressive sales, selling over 720,000 units. This takes it total physical sales in Japan to over 2.6 million units, which means it’s already within an inch of overtaking the lifetime sales of Mario Kart 8, and is outpacing Pokemon Sword and Shield and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as well.

Meanwhile, Bandai Namco’s musou action title One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 has enjoyed a strong debut, with its PS4 and Switch versions occupying second and third place in the charts respectively. The PS4 version sold over 75,000 copies, while the Switch version managed over 61,000 unites sold across the week.

On the hardware front, the Switch has dropped off from last week’s record-breaking hardware sales, but Animal Crossing has still kept its momentum going, with sales of over 280,000 units.
