Animal Crossing: New Leaf Surpasses One Million Sales
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
E.X. Troopers has an underwhelming start
When Animal Crossing: New Leaf was released in Japan, demand was so high that physical copies of the game sold out, while eShop download sales returned some rather impressive results. Subsequent weeks have remained solid, with the latest Media Create results showing that the title has passed the one million landmark while still topping the software charts. That said, Capcom may be disappointed with a modest début for E.X. Troopers — lifetime sales are in parenthesis.
