Nintendo released its latest fiscal report, showcasing impressive numbers for the Switch console and some of its flagship titles. One of the highlights was the update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is now the best-selling entry in the entire Animal Crossing series.

Over the course of the game’s first six weeks in the wild, it managed to sell 13.41 million copies. What’s even more amazing is the fact that 11.77 million of those copies were sold in the first 11 days. This makes Animal Crossing: New Horizons the 7th best-selling Switch game of all time, coming in right below Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.

Here’s a chart looking at how New Horizons‘ first six weeks and lifetime sales compare to that of two previous entries (Wild World on DS and New Leaf on 3DS):
