Minecraft Dungeons outperforms Animal Crossing: New Horizons On The US Switch eShop

Minecraft Dungeons, Mojang’s new dungeon-crawler in a Minecraft style, has finally overtaken Animal Crossing as the best selling game on the Switch eShop.

This ends 3 months of Animal Crossing dominance, where the game had held the number one spot since early March. Minecraft Dungeons is also performing well across Xbox and PlayStation.

“Minecraft Dungeons has ended Animal Crossing’s Run as the best-selling game on the US eShop,” wrote independent games industry analyst Benji-Sales. “Animal Crossing: New Horizons had been #1 since early March. That’s 3 months of dominance.”

“As we are seeing on Xbox, Minecraft Dungeons is performing very strong, and is now #1 on Switch.”

To be honest, it is not a huge surprise that Minecraft Dungeons is now the best selling game on Nintendo eShop. Minecraft franchise has a huge fanbase, perhaps one of the biggest in the games industry. In the same vein, Minecraft Dungeons is also getting new updates pretty quickly.

On May 31, the game developers announced that Minecraft Dungeons will get two DLC’s this year. The first DLC Jungle Awakens will be released in the coming months, while the second DLC Creeping Winter will also join later this year. Moreover, Minecraft Developers also said that they are developing a new free cross-platform project.

“We’ll come back with more details in the coming weeks. In the meantime, equip your favorite weapon and show that Arch-Illager who’s boss! Get it? I’ll see myself out.”

Before the official release of the PlayStation 5 design last year, images of devkits, a version of the console for game developers, were repeatedly leaked online. Someone merged photos, someone made renders, or simply redrawn the silhouette of the PS5 dev kit. Now the video has appeared with the included console.

A TikTok user posted a video of the PS5 devkit and noted that the console gets so hot that it can be used as a heater in cold weather. A few hours later, the account with the video was deleted, but someone managed to make a copy.

Debug information is displayed on the left side of the console. The devkit from the video is connected to a gigabit network and is equipped with some firmware 1.0.0.9.

Apparently, the author of the video was allowed to take the console home for the duration of the remote work. The final design of the PS5 is strikingly different from the working studio version, both inside and out.
