No one believed that Nintendo Switch could defeat Xbox One and PlayStation 4 back in 2017 when it was first released, but the hybrid console managed to surpass all expectations. Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console that gives players access to a bunch of awesome games. In fact, the exclusive titles that Nintendo Switch is offering such as Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are the reason why the hybrid console is breaking sales records.
Talking about breaking sales records, Nintendo has decided to announce which are the top ten best selling games on Nintendo Switch in 2019. With that said, let’s check out the list and see which Nintendo games have earned the most money.

Nintendo reports that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold a whopping 15 million copies. Now, this is impressive! Super Mario Odyssey is one of the most popular games of 2018 and it comes out on the second place with 13.76 million copies sold. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is sitting on the third place with 12 million copies.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also earned the fourth spot, but this was to be expected. This game was launched around the same time Nintendo Switch was released and everyone was talking about it when it came out.
