Games not made by Nintendo are dominating the Nintendo Switch’s latest eshop best-seller list. Even on the indie-stuffed Switch, there are usually one or two Nintendo games high on the list. Right now, the highest is Mario Kart 8 in the 14th spot. It helps that Nintendo has had few major releases of late.

I also think it is telling a lot of these games are cheap indie titles with a lot of buzz that fits well on a handheld. The fact that basically every first party Nintendo release is holding on to their original MSRP despite their age might have something to do with the lagging sales.  Of course it has Pokemon, Mario Party, and Smash so the Switch is in for another major jolt soon.
