These are the top 10 best-selling Nintendo Switch games

Nintendo also seems to have a good reason not to take over new studios. After all, the 10 best-selling Nintendo Switch games are from their own developers.

Today it was announced that the Nintendo Switch is the best-selling Nintendo console ever. Until January 1, almost 104 million copies of the hybrid console have flown over the counter. Like every quarter, Nintendo has updated the top 10 best-selling games of the Nintendo Switch this time too.

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 43.35 million
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons – 37.62 million
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – 27.4 million
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 25.8 million
  • Pokemon Sword/Pokemon Shield – 23.9 million
  • Super Mario Odyssey – 23.02 million
  • Super Mario Party – 17.39 million
  • Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu/Let’s Go, Eevee – 14.33 million
  • Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl – 13.97 million
  • Ring Fit Adventure – 13.53 million

These are all pretty good sales by the way. Especially if you take into account that Nintendo games are generally not discounted quickly and not very much in price. For example, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe manages to sell more copies than Red Dead Redemption 2 (which appeared on three platforms!). It still looks rosy for the Nintendo Switch for the time being. Although we are always curious what it would have been like if the Big N had come on the market with a 4K Oled Switch.
