And with 18 million Nintendo Switch consoles sold to date, that means that well over half of the Switch player base has bought a copy of Super Mario Odyssey. Which is an impressive feat for a console that is still just one year old. The power of the Mario name continues as the second bet selling Switch game is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with over 9 million copies sold.
Which unsurprisingly has sold more than the Wii U version on which it was based. The success of Super Mario Odyssey has seen steady sales for the game that has shown no sign of slowing down. Even first-week sales made it the fastest selling Mario game
of all time.
In terms of other Nintendo titles, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold 8.5 million copies, with Splatoon 2 selling an impressive 6 million. Even lesser known titles from Nintendo like 1-2 Switch, Arms, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Kirby Star Allies have all sold over one million copies each.
With all sales figures including both digital, bundle, and physical copies.
