Since 2019 there has been a change seen in the Nintendo switch’s sales. The Nintendo has started to rule especially in Japanese markets. The Switch sold just under 4.5 million units in 2019, which is up more than a million units on the 3.5 million sold in 2018 and 3.4 million from its launch year of 2017. It dwarfed the PS4 for the third consecutive year too, as Sony’s flagship product only made it to around 1.2 million units sold through for the year, though this was its sixth year on the market. Now even the Nintendo video games have proved to be the biggest hit of all time.
According to the latest Famitsu report, nine of the top ten games were all Switch titles. The only non-Nintendo game on the list was eFootball Winning Eleven 2021 Season Update made for ps4 by Sony.
- Super Mario 3D All-Stars (63,803) | Nintendo Switch
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons (29,829) | Nintendo Switch
- Ring Fit Adventure (25,915) | Nintendo Switch
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (13,470) | Nintendo Switch
- eFootball Winning Eleven 2021 Season Update (9,781) | PlayStation 4
