Nintendo Releases Impressive Sales Numbers For Top Switch Games

Nintendo has release sales numbers in regards to some of the Nintendo Switch’s top selling games.

Note: Data includes physical and digital sales.

Leading the pack is Super Mario Odyssey, which has shipped 9.07 million copies. Coming in second, but still shipping over 7 million copies, is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with 7.33 million units shipped. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took the #3 spot with 6.7 million copies, and Splatoon 2 claimed the fourth best selling title as it has shipped 4.91 million units. These are all incredibly impressive numbers.

The other titles Nintendo highlighted were 1-2-Switch (1.88 million), ARMS (1.61 million), and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (1.06 million).

While these are all high selling games, I can’t help but think the data behind ARMS is likely underwhelming for Nintendo. The new IP’s sales haven’t been that great, and have seemingly stagnated as of the last six months.

What do you make of these numbers? Comment below, let us know.
