Animal Crossing first 3DS game to pass 2M sales in Japan

And it’s only been out since November

We love us some Animal Crossing, and having the series on a capable handheld system like the 3DS is a great fit, but New Leaf hitting two million copies sold in Japan before any other 3DS title? I had no idea. Check out this great animation created by NeoGAF user Road which charts it all out.

The latest installment in the bizarre, charming series has beaten the likes of Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, and Monster Hunter 3G to the milestone. What makes this accomplishment extra special is the fact that New Leaf has only been out in Japan since November 8. Granted, the more good software you have for a system, the bigger the install base will inevitably become. Still, this seems like an entirely worthy game.
