Sanei Boeki releasing Animal Crossing Tom Nook and Isabelle cushions

Go to sleep and type in your Dream Address code!

Following yesterday's report on a Timmy and Tommy cushion being released by Sanei Boeki on February 17th, 2021, we now have word that both Tom Nook and Isabelle will also be available alongside them.

On the fronts, the money-hungry (yet adorable) Tom Nook grasps a bell bag, while the precious Isabelle holds a tasty apple. The sides feature a pattern print of bell bags and apples respectively, and the back has the character's Japanese names (Tanukichi & Shizue) printed in beautiful cursive. Each cushion is priced at ¥2,689, and now available for pre-order with worldwide shipping via Amazon JP.

It features Timmy and Timmy plus the Animal Crossing leaf on the front, leaves on the side, and Timmy and Tommy's Japanese names on the back. The item is priced at ¥2,689.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons reaches 6 million units sold in Japan faster than any game in history

Now THAT's something to brag about

Nintendo has claimed all sorts of records for their hardware and software sales, but Animal Crossing: New Horizons just snagged what could be the biggest feather in their crown yet.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has surpassed 6 million physical units sold in Japan as of this week. The game managed to hit that total in just 7 months, making it the fastest game in Japan's history to reach that milestone. Pokemon Gold and Silver were the previous record-holders, breaking that mark in 13 months.

It's worth pointing out that this figure only includes physical sales, so there's no doubt Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold way beyond 6 million in Japan, and likely broke the milestone a number of weeks back.
