Who says that niche games don’t sell? Katsuya Eguchi, the creator of Animal Crossing, has announced at GDC 2014 that Animal Crossing: New Leaf has sold over 7 million copies since its global release last year. In total, over 7.38 million copies were sold worldwide.

This absolutely staggering number sets the game ahead of huge, blockbuster titles like Tomb Raider and The Last of Us, which launched around the same time last summer.

In related news, Nintendo also confirmed that over 42.74 million 3DS handhelds have been sold worldwide, an equally mesmerizing number.
