Switch Nears 37M Sold, Nintendo Updates Best-Selling Games List

Smash Bros appears poised to steal second.


Nintendo has issued its earnings statements for the quarter ending June 30, and once again we have updated sales data on Switch hardware and its top games. The console/handheld hybrid is nearing 37 million lifetime units sold, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is gaining ground in the software charts.

The Nintendo Switch has reached 36.87 million units sold, with software topping 210 million units. The ranking of the highest-selling software has remained the same, relative to each other from the March sales figures, but strong sales of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate suggests it will be overtaking Super Mario Odyssey for the second place spot soon.

As of March the number two and three spots were occupied by Super Mario Odyssey (14.44 million) and Smash Bros. (13.81 million) respectively. The latest figures show Odyssey staying relatively steady with only a half-million more sold, and Smash Bros. making a much bigger leap of almost a million units. That has put it only 200,000 copies behind Odyssey, so those two will probably swap places by the next set of sales data.

Both of them are still behind the top seller, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. And Pokemon Let's Go, a fairly recent entry, has held onto its spot in the top five. And while it wasn't part of the top sellers, Nintendo did share sales on the newly-released Super Mario Maker 2. That game has sold 2.42 million units through the end of June. Check out the full list of top sellers below.
