Such a varied line-up awaits.

In our efforts to continue documenting Nintendo’s best-selling games on the Nintendo Switch, with the latest figures now provided, all we can say is “Wow!” Kirby and the Forgotten Land has outsold The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. Nintendo Switch Sports makes its million-seller debut and boosts an impressive 4.84 million sales and even Mario Strikers: Battle League / Battle League Football, has done well for itself thanks to its 1.91 million sales.

It is thanks to these two new additions that what was once a list of 49 games, has now become 51 games. Not too much of a shake-up has occurred, but it is all still impressive nonetheless and for anyone looking to stay in the loop of what games have achieved this impressive feat, our complete list can be seen here:
