Animal Crossing New Leaf was only released in November but it’s already proven that it’s a huge hit with the Japanese gaming public. ACNL managed to beat out other huge franchises such as Mario Kart 7, Monster Hunter 3G and Super Mario 3D Land to the record breaking milestone.

NeoGAF user, Road, has made a fancy animated graph showing off the rise and success of the Animal Crossing in sales compared to other titles, it’s amazing to watch!

Wii U Rumours Aplenty

It’s still early days but the rumour mill is in over drive over at Neogaf where a forum member has taken it upon himself to quote his beliefs on the resolution for the Wii U games, what resolution the Wii U controller will be running at plus a whole heap more that you can catch for yourself below.

  • 720p seems to be the sweet spot for definition with games running Wii U controller-intensive visuals
  • Wii U controller handles 480p
  • Wii U controller allows for viewing of on-TV action from another angle in some games
  • Seems that there are some third-party ports using this idea for gameplay
  • V5 dev kit is a little more powerful than V4, but doesn’t make for 1080p in these situations
  • Games can benefit from a slight visual boost over 360/PS3 and may run at a higher resolution
  • More simple titles may be able to run 1080p in conjunction with the controller
