Animal Crossing: New Leaf sold over 7 million copies

Nintendo announced at GDC that Animal Crossing: New Leaf has currently sold over 7 million copies.

Nintendo’s latest iteration of the Animal Crossing franchise, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, has currently sold over 7 million copies. This puts the game ahead of Sony’s huge hit, The Last of Us, which sold 6 million units worldwide. Whilst the game released in Japan in mid-late 2012, the game has only been out for the rest of the world since Summer 2013, so these numbers are extremely impressive and are a huge deal for Nintendo, whom have been under pressure from investors and media alike regarding their faltering performances as of late.
