It isn’t a secret or a surprise that Nintendo sees sales boosts and more people get into its hardware ecosystem through mobile games like Pokémon GO and Super Mario Run. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp (Free) recently released across the world and it has made an impact in Japan on sales for the massively popular 3DS game, Animal Crossing: New Leaf already. On the Media Create weekly sales charts, Animal Crossing: New Leaf was boosted to the 9th position from 19th the week before. It saw a 214% increase over the week.
