Mario Kart 8 Deluxe exceeds 45 million units sold and remains the best-selling Switch game in history

Nintendo’s financial report for fiscal year 2021 has been released, and alongside the 108 million Switch units sold is the updated list of the best-selling Nintendo Switch games. The list may be “up to date”, but it looks very familiar.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe retains its championship as the best-selling Switch game of all time, moving 9.9 million units in 2021 to its lifetime sales of 45.33 million. Animal Crossing: New Horizons remains the second best seller with 38.64 million lifetime units, while Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is third with 28.17 million.
