Switch Best Sellers

Nintendo has provided updated sales figures for its best-selling games on Switch, giving us a great look at which titles have performed the best since the console first launched more than four years ago.

It's a very familiar list, with most of the system's best-sellers holding their positions from previous reports. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons continue to dominate, both extending their leads at the top, with the former selling strongest during Q1 2021.
