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. To little surprise, the game is also performing admirably on the Xbox Store, being bolstered by the supreme value it offers and its appearance in the Xbox Game Pass.
On the Xbox Store, Minecraft Dungeons shows as the best-selling game, even beating out heavy hitters like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, with the Hero Edition showing up at #5. Even more impressive, just the Hero Edition Upgrade Pass, an add-on for the game, is at #11, which is definitely a surprise.
