This is just through March.

BOTW surpassed Odyssey, Pokemon SS sold only 1 million since January
Animal crossing almost 12 millions in under 2 weeks !!

Switch might be underestimated since it was out of stock everywhere, don't think there was 2 millions on shelves.

Sword/Shield has now outsold every 3DS Pokemon and is #4 out of the whole series with only R/G/B, G/S, and D/P ahead of it, and the latter less than a million.

Nintendo outdoing their forecast for shipped Switches by 1.5 mil despite shipment issues, quite impressive.
Also now I really regret not posting my prediction for the top 10 shipped games on here, since I was spot on with a bunch of games:

MK8DX - 24,8 mil
SSBU - 18,7 mil
Sw/Sh - 17,7 mil
BotW - 17,6
SMO - 17,1
AC:NH - 12,4 mil
Lets Go - 12,1 mil
Splat2 - 10,1 mil
SMP - 9,9 mil
NSMBUDX - 6,6 mil

Did get some of the rankings wrong though and put AC a little too high.

So they did indeed surpass their original forcast by 3 million. That's very impressive.

Animal Crossing will sell less than Pokemon, they said...

"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."

AC 12 million in 12 days! O_O Could it beat Mario Kart at some point? If it keeps selling to become a casual creativity trend, I believe it could

Switch is still out of stock in the UK, except ebay - at double the price

don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

Very impressive Swirch numbers. Expecting an equally strong Q1 for Switch hardware wise, as that is when April will be counted and I don't think the Switch will slow significantly in May or June.

Terrific software numbers all around particularly for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing (which sold nearly 12m in 10 days making it the fastest Switch seller).

And with that, it has happened. A 3D Zelda has surpassed a contemporaneous 3D Mario. And not just any 3D Mario but by far the most successful in history. Insane. And Animal Crossing is looking like it's going to join many of Nintendo's franchise entries on Switch in shattering franchise records.
