Animal Crossing: New Horizons Is the 2nd Best-Selling Game Ever In Japan

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become Japan's 2nd best selling game of all time, dethroning Pokémon Gold and Silver after 21 unchallenged years.

Nintendo's Animal Crossing: New Horizons is continuing its dominance, as it has now become Japan's second best selling game of all time. The previous record holder was none other than Game Freak's Pokémon Gold and Silver, which released almost 21 years ago. Meanwhile, the number one best-seller was the previous Pokémon title(s), Pokémon Red and Blue

The original Pokémon Gold and Silver released in Japan back in November 1999 and quickly became one of the best selling video games on not just the Game Boy Color, but across all fifth-generation systems (which included the original Playstation and the Nintendo 64). Despite selling less than the previous Pokémon generation, both the original Pokémon Gold and Silver and its remakes Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver are generally considered to be the best Pokémon games ever made, and have continuously been praised by fans in various ways.

After two decades in second place, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has taken the title from Pokémon Gold and Silver. Recently, Animal Crossing: New Horizon became the second-best selling Nintendo Switch title, and according to a tweet from Game Data Library, it is now also the second-best selling game in Japan, across all platforms. A follow-up tweet claims that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold over 7.5 million units since its release, clearing Pokémon Gold and Silver's 7.17 million.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has only been on the market for a few months, far less time than Pokémon Gold and Silver, yet it has already breezed by many other critically acclaimed titles such as Super Mario Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and done it in far less time. Game Data Library suggests that Animal Crossing: New Horizons' momentum is not dropping, meaning it could over take the original Pokémon Red and Blue for the best selling video game in Japan of all time.
