Does any else find it kind of sad that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a port of a game that sold over 8 million copies, still managed to sell over 9 million, more than Breath of the Wild or Splatoon 2?

I'm not exactly angry or anything, but it certainly doesn't help the reputation that Nintendo fans buy anything with Mario on it because I'm sure a substantial number of the 9m are people buying the game a second time.

Was kinda hoping to see Xenoblade pass 1.5m. Wasn't EXPECTING it mind, but would've made me happy to see.

I knew I was going to see Kirby on there.

The full results state that there are 12 million sellers between first and third party games on the Switch. The list here plus the arbitrarily missing 1-2 Switch and ARMS brings us up to 8. Guesses for the remaining 4? I'd probably say Mario + Rabbids, Pokken, Fire Emblem Warriors, and Bomberman.

Yes. Yes I do. I did the math. Only about 29.98 million software sales are third party. Expect tepid responses from third party developers. I personally will follow my own advice, but you don't have to. What I really expect is more of the same: Delayed ports, "gimped versions", extra cost of the game ($70 -> $80 CAD, $60 -> $70 USD, etc.), 30 FPS instead of 60 FPS, etc.
