 Animal Crossing: New Leaf  has moved over 6M copies
Animal Crossing: New Leaf has moved over 6M copies
October 31, 2013 | By Kris Ligman




Animal Crossing: New Leaf has blown fellow first-party Nintendo 3DS titles out of the water, moving 6.35 million units worldwide since its launch in Japan in November 2012.

The figure comes from supplementary information [PDF] included in Nintendo's most recent earnings call, which also indicates that one third of that total (or just over 2 million units) comes from outside Japan -- which only serves to highlight the kind of global appeal the game has garnered.

Trailing behind New Leaf among first-party lifetime sales were Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (3.13 million globally), Tomodachi Collection (1.63 million), Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (1.37 million) and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (1.19).

It should be noted that these rankings do not include the recently released Pokemon X & Y, which Nintendo reports moved over 4 million units within two days of its worldwide release on October 12th.
