The big 2,000 has been comfortably reached before the end of 2018. However, October was another slow month for this thread.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is back to being tied with Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for fifth place. Kirby Star Allies moves back into the top 10. Torna is now in a three-way tie with Mario Tennis and Pokken. The new release Super Mario Party fails to enter the top 20 as only four members have bought it so far.

November brings us Pokémon: Let's Go, Evee! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!, so maybe that generates some more activity in this thread. Just like with Super Mario Party, digital preorders earn twice the cashback on the Switch eShop. In the spreadsheet, the two versions will count towards a combined total (i.e. only a single entry in the charts is possible), but will be broken down individually nevertheless. People who buy both versions will of course have both of them counted towards their grand total of games owned.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
