Charting Nintendo's top 10 best-selling Switch games shows little deviation in games placement. The overall selection is the same as it was last quarter--Mario Kart 8 still leads the race and now has 45 million+ copies sold, followed up by surprise mega-hit Animal Crossing New Horizons, which is now at 38.6 million sales.

The one small placement change was that Pokemon Diamond and Pearl (14.65 million) bumped Pokemon Let's Go! Eevee & Pikachu (14.53 million) into ninth place. The other standings are basically the same. These strong game sales have significantly contributed to the Switch's $62.8 billion earnings.
