Nintendo Switch: The Updated Top 10 Sellers List Has Some Amazing Milestones

Nintendo has updated their top 10 all-time Switch sellers list after releasing their Switch sales figures, and there’s some amazing numbers in there. Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to have a blistering first year after six months on sale, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still selling well, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has become the system’s third 20-million seller.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is up to 26.04 million sales, up from 22.4 million units last quarter. At that time, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was on 26.7 million sales, and you might expect the gap to have narrowed significantly–but the kart racer also sold incredibly this quarter, jumping to 28.99 million units. The 2017 Switch port of a 2014 Wii U title (which was also that system’s highest seller, at 8.45 million units) continues to be a huge success.

While Mario Kart Wii is still technically the best-selling Mario Kart game, having sold 37.38 million units, if you combine the sales of Mario Kart 8 on Wii U and Switch you get a total sales figure of 37.44 million units–making it the best-selling game in the series.

There are no new entries from last quarter, although Super Mario 3D All-Stars got off to such a strong start (5.21 million sales in two weeks) that we could see it overtake New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe in the future.
