Animal Crossing Pocket Camp

Believe it or not, but downloads for Nintendo's mobile offering Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp have risen by 150% since the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It's gone from receiving 520,000 installs last month to a whopping 1.3 million as of March 21st. On the revenue front, it's experienced its best day since the start of the month, generating $253,000 in terms of player spending.

While this might seem a bit odd at first, it's not all that surprising when you consider Nintendo has been promoting a special crossover event that allows players to receive a special set of items in New Horizons if they redeem a code from Pocket Camp on the Switch eShop.

As for New Horizons, it's smashed it out of the park with a tremendous first week in the UK. Meanwhile, over in Japan, it's become the biggest launch for a Switch game ever.
