Here Are Nintendo Switch's Best-Selling First-Party Games, Ranked

Super Mario Odyssey is the Switch's best-selling title to date.


As part of Nintendo's latest financial results, the company revealed its best-selling Switch titles to date. As you may have guessed, Super Mario Odyssey is the Switch game with the most units sold so far, though a number of other games have also done well.

Super Mario Odyssey's sales total 9 million units worldwide, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (7.3 million) coming in second. Next on the list is Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with 6.7 million units sold, followed by Splatoon 2, which has sold 4.9 million units so far. Two more Nintendo-published titles--Arms and Xenoblade Chronicles 2--have each hit the million sales milestone, with 1.6 and 1.06 million sales respectively. Two further third-party games have hit the same million sales milestone, but we don't what those games are or precisely how many units they've shipped. Note these figures are correct as of December 31, 2017.
