Nintendo just released its latest financial report, and one of the biggest highlights is the overall sales figures for the company’s most popular games. And there are no newcomers or big surprises here.
Once again, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is at the top – it ever will not be? – 45.33 million units sold since its launch. That will likely continue to increase as the Booster Course Pass expands. Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are still in second and third place, with 38.64 million and 28.17 units sold, respectively. It feels like very little is catching up to Mario Kart or Animal Crossing, with over 10 million sales difference between Ultimate in third place and the snuggly life sim.
Otherwise, everything is pretty much the same as last time. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl continued to dominate, and now Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s go, Eevee! to become the second best Pokémon game on the Switch.
