    1. Did some research. This is total lifetime sales for games that sold over 1 million during THIS fiscal year. That’s why Fire Emblem, Link’s Awakening, etc. are missing.

  1. 1-2 Switch, Fire Emblem, Arms, Link’s Awakening, Minecraft, DK Country, Kirby, Yoshi—so many games missing from this list. There are currently at least 40 games that have sold at least 1 million copies on the switch.

    1. Never mind. Just saw the comment above about selling 1 million this fiscal year only. Of course, this list doesn’t help the argument that people only buy Nintendo consoles to play Nintendo games.

  2. I still strongly recommend Xenoblade DE to anyone who might be on the fence with it. I’m almost never able to finish long RPGs out of a lack of interest in that style of game, but Xenoblade DE really gripped me in a way that no other RPG had. It ended up being the first 70+ hour RPG I’ve ever beaten, and as such, I consider it to be one of the best gateway RPGs out there

  3. The term “shipped” refers to physical only, o take it?

    Also, it is definitely a good time to be a Nintendo fan as the Big N has been winning big time since 2017 thanks to the Switch. However I have one concern after seeing this million seller list and find out that 7 out of 16 games are ports/ remasters/remakes. My only wish in 2021 for Nintendo to focus more on creating new games since most of what was porting have been ported already.

    Also, I find it weird that XC DE has higher sales than XCII.

    1. Thankfully, most of the doable Wii U ports will be done after 3D World + Bowser’s Fury comes out. After that point, we should be mostly getting new games (or, at least, more interesting remasters/remakes like Xenoblade DE)
