The Switch currently has 10 first-party games that have sold over 10 million copies each. Animal Crossing New Horizons has finally slowed down its monstrous sales pace (it was previously selling 1 million copies every week for quite some time) and Mario Party saw a particularly nice uplift throughout FY2021.
The year's best performers in terms of growth were Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing New Horizons, which spiked during the Q3 period. All of the top 10 games saw an uplift during the year, though.
