It looks like the Nintendo Switch is still helping Nintendo to sell some real gangbusters in terms of software!
In its latest financial report, Nintendo outlined the global sales figures (since April 2020) of its 20 bestsellers – revealing that they had all crossed at least 1 million copies in sales each. The highest-selling Nintendo-published during this period was Animal Crossing: New Horizons, followed by Super Mario 3D All-Stars in 2nd place.
Some newcomers this year were no slouch, either – with Paper Mario: The Origami King in 5th place, while the niche RPG Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition made it onto the list at 19th place.
