Already one of the best-selling consoles of all time, the Nintendo Switch continues to tally sales. In the latest figures released by Nintendo, the Switch has climbed to 111.08 million hardware units sold. The Switch is currently the fifth-best selling console in history. Additionally, Nintendo has sold 863.59 million individual software units on the console.

It will be interesting to watch if Nintendo can displace some of the other best-selling consoles in the top five. Currently, PlayStation 4 is next on the list with 116.97 million hardware units sold, with the original Game Boy occupying the spot for third-most sold console at 118.69 million hardware units sold.

With the updated sales figures, the top-selling games on Switch are as follows:

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe     46.82 million pcs.
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons     39.38 million pcs.
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate     28.82 million pcs.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild     27.14 million pcs.
  • Pokémon Sword/Pokémon Shield     24.50 million pcs.
  • Super Mario Odyssey     23.93 million pcs.
  • Super Mario Party     18.06 million

  • Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!/
    Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!   
     14.66 million pcs.
  • Ring Fit Adventure     14.54 million pcs.

It’s interesting to see Ring Fit Adventure continuing to hold its place in the top ten, likely still benefiting from the pandemic and the shift in lifestyle and health practices for many. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is approaching a monumental achievement as it draws near to 30 million in sales, a number it will likely hit, particularly with the sequel releasing in 2023.
