What’s truly astounding about these numbers, however, is that they don’t include any of the titles’ online sales figures. NPD is normally able to pull data from both physical and digital sales, but all of Nintendo’s games are marked with asterisks denoting, “digital sales not included.”

Even so, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise considering Nintendo’s latest earnings reports, which was positive to say the least. In it, we learned that more people are buying Mario Kart 8, which was first released all the way back on the Wii U in 2014, over some of Nintendo’s newer games. And while Animal Crossing: New Horizons isn’t selling quite as well as it did last year, that’s only because it did absolutely bonkers numbers in 2020.

So, yeah, Nintendo’s doing pretty well.
