The cute and family friendly animated game, Animal Crossing, has become the most sought after video game since its release on March 20, 2020..

Animal Crossing is an animated simulation game where players create an island paradise that starts as a barren desert. This game is similar to games like Farmville and Minecraft, where the possibilities are endless in terms of imagination and creativity.

Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons which is the latest edition of the video game’s franchise, was deemed the bestselling video game title in the United States last month, estimating the total sales of the Nintendo gaming software in the US jumped 34% in March to $739 million.

In the United Kingdom, Animal Crossing immediately topped the charts, surpassing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which was the best selling global title last year.

With a wider multi-generational family fanbase, Animal Crossing proves it is for all ages and has now become the biggest single game launched on the Nintendo Switch and has even driven sales toward the system alone.

As people all around the globe continue to quarantine, Animal Crossing proves to be a fantastic way to spend your time together as a family.
