Along with sales figures for the Switch, Nintendo also updated its list of top-selling titles. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons continue to reign supreme but several other titles have also achieved some significant milestones. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold 21.45 million while Pokemon Sword and Shield has sold 20.35 million.
Super Mario Odyssey is also part of the 20 million sales club with 20.23 million units sold while Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sales are at 22.85 million units. Other noteworthy sales figures, as revealed in the company’s earnings release, are Luigi’s Mansion 3 at 9.13 million units sold and Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics selling 2.62 million. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is also interesting because it sold 2.84 million units without accounting for sales in Japan.
Nintendo is responsible for selling the title outside of Japan so only the sell-through for North America and Europe are accounted for in its report. Koei Tecmo is responsible for sales in Japan and reported that shipments had passed 3.5 million in its last fiscal report. Stay tuned for more details and concrete sales figures in the coming days.
