As part of its recent quarterly earnings report, Nintendo revealed updated sales numbers for not only the Nintendo Switch (which has surpassed 139 million units worldwide), but also for a number of major recent releases like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and Super Mario RPG. In addition to that, as it does every quarter, the company also revealed updates figures for the Switch’s top ten best-selling first party Switch titles. 

Perhaps the biggest highlight here is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. As of December 31, it stands at 60.58 million units worldwide. That’s up from 57 million units as of the end of the preceding quarter, with Nintendo attributing its boosted sales in part to the success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Combined with the sales of its original Wii U version (which has sold 8.46 million units), Mario Kart 8’s total lifetime sales now stand at 69.04 million units. 

Meanwhile, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold 44.79 million units (up by over 1.4 million units), Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has hit 33.67 million (up by over 1.2 million), and Super Mario Odyssey has sold 27.65 million (up by roughly 500,000 units). You can check out the full top 10 below.
