A list of 2020's best-selling video games in Japan has emerged and Animal Crossing: New Horizons is comfortably topping the charts with more than five million units shifted.
The figures come from data released by Famitsu, offering insight into the Japanese video games market for the first six months of the year.
The report only takes physical games and download cards into account. It shows that Animal Crossing sold more than five times as many copies at retail as the next biggest title, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which shifted an estimated 931,165 copies.
New Horizons broke sales records for Switch in Japan at launch, becoming the console's fastest-selling game to date, and has since been confirmed as the best-selling Switch game of all time in Japan.
Famitsu also shared market figures for revenues generated at retail. Consumers spent ¥95.47 billion ($905 million) on software and ¥79.3 billion ($751.9 million) on hardware.
This amounts to a combined ¥174.8 billion ($1.6 billion) spent at games retail during the first six months of the year.
Both hardware and software show significant increases from the first half of 2019, when software made ¥73.99 billion ($701.4 million) and hardware generated ¥66.1 billion ($626.7 million). The total revenue for H1 2019 was ¥140 billion ($1.3 billion)
