Only FIFA 21 achieved this feat.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons celebrated a year of life on 20 March 2021 and in the United Kingdom it acquired an important character to mark the date, with over 1 million units sold in 12 months.
The latest figures on video game sales in UK physical stores, thanks to GI.biz, suggest that this is a huge launch from Nintendo, capable of a feat that only a giant like FIFA 21 has achieved. These two games, launched only in 2020, were able to sell over 1 million units in physical stores.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons appears in the most recent table as the best-selling game, relative to the previous week’s sales, which displayed a long-term appeal with good effect.
FIFA 21 dropped first place and Monster Hunter Rise moved up from 4th to 6th place, while outriders disappeared from the list of the 10 best-selling games. Square Enix’s game saw a 74% drop in sales and dropped to 16th place.
