Today, Nintendo released its latest end-of-year earnings report, which summarized the company’s sales up until the end of its fiscal year on 31st March 2020. The report includes the top 10 best selling Nintendo Switch games and it is largely as expected, but there is one surprise.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 24.77 million
Super Smash Bros Ultimate – 18.84 million
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 17.41 million
Super Mario Odyssey – 17.41 million
Pokemon Sword/Pokemon Shield – 17.37 million

Super Mario Party – 10.10 million
New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe – 6.60 million
At number 1 is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a near launch title for the Nintendo Switch and a port of the Wii U game Mario Kart 8. What is interesting to note is that the report also detailed that there has been 55.77 million Nintendo Switch consoles sold, meaning almost 50% of all Switch owners own a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The game has also vastly outsold the total number of Wii U consoles that were sold, the original platform it was released on.
The next interesting note is that Breath Of The Wild and Mario Odyssey have sold the same amount of copies, and were both launch day releases.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is at number 7 with 11.77 million copies sold. The report details sales up until 31st March 2020 and the game was released on 20th March, meaning the game became the 7th best selling title in just 11 days.
