The best-selling Nintendo Switch game so far is Animal Crossing: New Horizon which was not only a great game, but something fun to play during the COVID-19 pandemic when countries where in their respective lockdowns.

3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 4,429,626

  The Mario Kart series is one of Nintendo's most highly successful game series, with consistently strong sales in almost every installment. When a new Mario Kart game is announced, it immediately garners attention, even if it's not an entirely new game, such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

4. Pokemon Sword / Shield – 4,309,812

    New Pokemon games always come with fresh sets of Pokemon, new gameplay mechanics, and new regions to explore. You can expect to encounter a new region called Galar, filled with vibrant life and mysterious places to explore. The games feature complex and deep exploration, a strong motivation for battles, epic battles, and familiar gym battle mechanics.

5. Splatoon 2 – 4,031,223

  After achieving tremendous success with the first Splatoon game, which sold millions of copies despite being released on the less successful WiiU console, its unique and enjoyable gameplay earned it numerous accolades from various gaming institutions.

6. Ring Fit Adventure – 3,074,777

  The Nintendo Switch Ring Fit Adventure is a fitness game that involves physical movement and exercise.

7. Momotaro Dentetsu : Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! – 2,597,078

9. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl – 2,502,926

10. Monster Hunter Rise – 2,357,260
