Nintendo Switch has been very successful indeed and while there are plenty of first-party games, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still the best selling one to date. The game is followed closely by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Nintendo has released its financials and has also mentioned the top-selling games on the Nintendo Switch. While the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best selling game on the Nintendo Switch to date, the rest of the numbers are very interesting as well.

Interestingly, Animal Crossing: New Horizons just came out a while back and the sales are more than Super Mario Party. I would not be surprised if Animal Crossing: New Horizons becomes the next most sold game on the Nintendo Switch in the next quarter. keeping in mind how quickly the game is selling, it should only be a matter of time.
The Covid-19 situation is not ideal but it is encouraging more people to stay at home and try out gaming. So that too can be another factor here that pushes Animal Crossing: New Horizons to become the best selling game on the Nintendo Switch in a few weeks time.
Let us know what you think about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being the best selling game on the Nintendo Switch and whether or not you think Animal Crossing: New Horizons can beat it.
