Nintendo Switch Games Are Still Selling Insanely Well

Every time one of these updates are released, it blows my mind just how well the first-party Nintendo Switch games are selling. 

Let some of these stats sink in. In nine days, Zelda: Link’s Awakening sold 3.13 million copies. The last 2D Zelda came (A Link Between Worlds) only sold four million copies in its entire life cycle. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is pushing 20 million units and Super Mario Party is another huge seller at nearly 8 million units. It’s also worth mentioning that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has now overtaken the best selling 3DS game (Mario Kart 7).
