Mario Kart sales actually dropped for the first time in several weeks.   That dlc has done its job though.  You can see it's sales this week are about twice Smash Bros' sales in spite of the latter having a bigger lifetime total.  I bet the gradual rollout of new dlc content will keep weekly Mario Kart sales high for the next couple of years.

02./02. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe <RCE> (Nintendo) {2017.04.28} (¥5.980) - 16.312 / 4.554.586 (-18%)

05./06. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate # <FTG> (Nintendo) {2018.12.07} (¥7.200) - 8.064 / 4.840.518 

As for YoY Switch comparisons, I want to remind people that 2020 and 2021 had Animal Crossing and MH Rise as late March releases.  The new Kirby game is just not going to drive sales like these two games did.  Switch Sports and Splatoon 3 are still coming.  Expect higher hardware sales coming from these two games.  I do think 2022's year end total will be below 2021, but the software lineup is so good this year, that it might be just a tiny YoY drop.
