Our predictions are ringing true, with the game now topping the sales charts for both Nintendo and Xbox, according to a games analyst on Twitter and their official store pages.
On the Nintendo eShop, Minecraft Dungeons is showing as the best-seller in both the US and UK regions, and has officially topped the long-reigning champion of the Nintendo Switch, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This is an incredible accomplishment for a fledlging franchise, and is certainly impressive.
