The bestselling Nintendo Switch game is hard to peg. Why? Because the Nintendo Switch hit some pretty big home runs on its release. Some of the consoles big releases include The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2 and more. With that being said, the game that takes the top spot on the bestselling Nintendo Switch game doesn’t come as a surprise at all.
As of the date, this article saw the light of day (April 28th, 2018) Super Mario Odyssey is the bestselling Nintendo Switch game. Other games such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda BotW come close. Hats off to Mario on his fantastic, fun return in this vast 3D adventurous world.
Many can agree that Super Mario Odyssey is the best game on the Nintendo Switch. While Zelda rivals many players favorite as a top contender of a close second; the game sells actually place Zelda in third place on the leaderboard. Also, Zelda BotW doesn’t claim that top spot for what we can assume would be a good reason. Because the Zelda release was spilt between Nintendo Switch and Wii U many players purchased the game for the Switches processor. While Breath of the Wild is the bestselling Zelda game of all time (not counting reboots and re-releases) it still falls short as the bestselling Nintendo Switch game.
