Once again, Nintendo have posted the latest results to their Best Sellers list and while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continues to occupy the top spot and there’s a new addition to the list, the numbers aren’t as impressive as they could have been.

Compared to the actual performance of each game in the last three months, five entries didn’t even go on to sell 700,000 units and Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! are among them.

Lower sales aside, we have still taken the time to look over Nintendo’s best-selling titles and see how each one did. The full results, which may surprise you, can be seen here:

While it is a shame the likes of ARMS, Kirby Star Allies and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, no longer appear on this list, Nintendo has saw fit to provide some sales details on how other games have performed, which you can see here:

  • Kirby Star Allies – 2.56 million
  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze – 2.25 million
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – 1.18 million (*NEW)
  • Octopath Traveler – 1.17 million
  • Yoshi’s Crafted World – 1.11 million (*NEW)
  • Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit – 1.09 million (*While Labo sales were shared previously, those were combined Labo sales and not individual sales per kit.

 

Why the sales of ARMS and Xenoblade Chronicles were omitted are beyond us, but we do know back in October 2019, that it was officially reported that ARMS had sold 2.10 million units and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 had surpassed 1.53 million.

We hope you enjoyed this breakdown and have a much better understanding as to just how well each game performed in the last couple of months, compared to their overall lifetime performance.

 

Until next time, Keep on Gaming!
