Animal Crossing: New Horizons has set a new Nintendo Switch sales no mistake: everyone loves Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and if word of mouth isn't enough to convince you, its stellar first-week sales metrics probably will.

But what really raises eyebrows is that New Horizons has already outsold all of the previous games in the series combined in the UK!

Record-breaking aside, New Horizons has come at a rather...interesting period for the gaming industry.

With the coronavirus outbreak effectively keeping everyone under house arrest, there's not much for us gamers to do but play whatever's trending, with gaming platforms such as Steam registering new concurrent user records every other day.

Anyway, we'll be getting started on New Horizons ourselves soon, so stay tuned for our review.
