Mario Kart 8 does not give up the throne in front of Animal Crossing: these are the 10 best-selling Switch games

Nintendo Switch has sold over 35 million Mario Kart 8 alone. Nintendo has published this morning its financial report for fiscal year 2021, which covers the period from April 2020 to March 2021. A report from which it transpires that Nintendo Switch has sold 84.59 million consoles to date, and as usual, the console data has been accompanied by an update of the best-selling Nintendo Switch games. Despite a year of pandemic, where Animal Crossing: New Horizons became a viral phenomenon, this game has not managed to overcome (for now) the races of Super Mario and company.

Mario Kart 8 surpasses 35 million sales on Switch

Indeed, Deluxe remains the best-selling Nintendo Switch game to date, adding 10 million units this year to exceed 35 million games sold. Of course, the game that has sold the most units this year is Animal Crossing, which from April 2020 to March 2021 has sold another 20 million, for a total of 32 million in its entire life. Well… In the last year and a month, which is all the time this Animal Crossing has been in stores.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars sells 9 million in 7 months

After a record fiscal year, the Big N highlights that there have been 36 games with more than 1 million sales in the period on Nintendo Switch. Of course, the Top 10 of the console is dominated by the titles of Nintendo itself, starting with this Mario Kart 8 originally from Wii U, and closing with a New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, also originating from it. Super Mario 3D All-Stars narrowly missed the top, with 9 million games sold in 7 months. We are talking about the compilation of three classic Super Mario games that debuted in the fall with an expiration date, and that has already been withdrawn from the eShop and has finished its production.

We also highlight the sales of Ring Fit Adventure, since they soared during the pandemic, whose total of 10.11 million games sold to date also serves to stay at the gates of the ranking. Here are the 10 best-selling Nintendo Switch games to date, accompanied by their official sales figures. And, of course, we invite you to review the analysis of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as well as the analysis of Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, so that you know everything about these proposals.
