Just yesterday, Nintendo’s latest financial earnings report was released. As to be expected by every financial quarter, the company updated its list of best-selling Nintendo Switch titles as old releases continue to battle it out for a top spot and new challengers approach the rankings. While Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate still continue to bring in mega sales numbers, Nintendo had quite a few new million seller entries enter the list from the last three months.

According to Nintendo, Nintendo Switch Sports has so far sold 4.84 million units while Kirby and the Forgotten Land just trailed behind at 4.53 million. Meanwhile, Mario Strikers: Battle League is closing in on its next milestone as the game reached 1.91 million units.

Below, readers can take a look at the updated top ten best-selling games on Switch:


  1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 46.82 million
  2. Animal Crossing: New Horizons – 39.38 million
  3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – 28.82 million
  4. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 27.14 million
  5. Pokemon Sword / Pokemon Shield – 24.50 million
  6. Super Mario Odyssey – 23.93 million
  7. Super Mario Party – 18.06 million
  8. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond / Pokemon Shining Pearl – 14.79 million
  9. Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! – 14.66 million
  10. Ring Fit Adventure – 14.54 million


While the sales numbers for Nintendo Switch Sports are notable, Kirby and the Forgotten Land crossed off quite a few goals for its own franchise. The first 3D game in the Kirby series could become the best-selling game in the franchise as it currently sits behind the long undefeated champion, Kirby’s Dream Land for the Game Boy. The first Kirby game sold 5.13 million units across its lifespan, but it is looking like the Forgotten Land may just take its spot by the end of the fiscal year.

In their latest financial earnings report, Nintendo detailed that the Nintendo Switch crossed over 111.08 million total units while total hardware and software sales were down compared to last year’s financial quarter. When more Nintendo financial news makes the rounds, we’ll be sure to let you know.
