Nintendo has just announced at GDC 2014 that Animal Crossing: New Leaf has sold a massive 7.38 million copies worldwide. To put that in perspective, Animal Crossing: New Leaf finds itself in more homes than Nintendo’s Wii U console at approximately 6 million sold.
Worldwide sales for the 3DS itself were also revealed. Currently Nintendo has sold 42.74 million units of the popular handheld. By our calculations that means almost one in five 3DS owners worldwide have purchased a copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf—impressive!
