Nintendo provides updated Switch software sales, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe soars with over 19 million (!) sold


Next up is Smash Ultimate, which came out less than a year ago

Due to its recent financial results posting, Nintendo has updated its software sales totals, and the results are nothing but good news for the company.

As usual Mario Kart reigns supreme, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxepushing over 19.01 millionunits to date. Arriving fairly early in the system’s life cycle (April 2017) it’s managed to push this far with staying power, but the more impressive figure is Smash Ultimate; it’s now at 15.71 million units sold in under a year.

Next up is Mario Odyssey, which is low key barely-besting Zelda: Breath of the Wild(of course, Wii U Zeldasales aren’t counted here). Another surprise: can you believe that New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxesold 4.59 million and is currently the 8th best-selling Switch game of all time? It felt like that one kind of came and went despite me picking it up and doing my ceremonial Luigi UDLC playthrough.

You can find the full list below. Note that Nintendo considers both versions ofLet’s Goone entry.
