Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp popped 15 million downloads in six days


Less a campsite, more a metropolis

Data from analytical software website, Sensor Tower, shows that Nintendo's recently released mobile title, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, has been downloaded over 15 million times since launch last week.

The grandiose figure cements the game as the second most popular Nintendo mobile title after last year's mega-hit Super Mario Run, which bagged a staggering 32 million downloads on release.

In Japan, the community management spin-off reached a high ranking fifth place on the iPhone app chart this weekend, before dropping into a comfortable number 10 slot. The game hasn't had as much of an impact in the U.S. so far, where it sits around number 70. Ironically, Fire Emblem Heroes, which many would consider a more niche title, had a much more successful U.S. debut, reaching number eight in the charts after just one day.

Regardless, it's great news for Animal Crossing franchise fans, who must surely feel that the success of the free-to-play game could lead to a mainline Switch title down the line.
