The chart shows Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch at the top. It sold 3.5 times as much as its predecessor, New Leaf, on 3DS.

It’s also the biggest launch of a single Switch game since the release of the console (even if this is debatable. If you combine Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, Animal Crossing slides in second place).

Doom: Eternal debuted in second place for the week, with physical sales dropping by a third compared to its own predecessor from 2016.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is still going strong in third place, followed by the inevitable FIFA 20 and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe completing the top 5.

Grand Theft Auto V is still unsinkable in sixth place, while two Crash Games (N.Sane Trilogy and Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled) are separated by Forza Horizon 4. Red Dead Redemption 2 closes the top 20, still going strong but not quite matching Grand Theft Auto’s exploits.

A lot of the entries climbed considerably compared to the week prior, showing that in times of Coronavirus, many are leaning on evergreen games.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
