Here Are The Top Ten Best-Selling Nintendo Switch Games As Of June 2020 – Nintendo Life

Animal Crossing is a monster

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Earlier today, we reported that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold an absolutely staggering 22 million copies in just over three months. That’s all well and good, but how does that compare to Nintendo’s other major Switch releases?

As part of its three-months earnings release, Nintendo has updated its official sales figures for Switch’s best-sellers. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still number one, but its previously giant lead has been significantly reduced thanks to Animal Crossing, which is now already the second-best-selling Switch game of all time.

You can see the full top ten below (bear in mind that the data only references Nintendo-published titles).


Top Ten Best-Selling Nintendo Switch Games (as of 30th June 2020):

  1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 26.74 million
  2. Animal Crossing: New Horizons – 22.40 million
  3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – 19.99 million
  4. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 18.60 million
  5. Pokémon Sword and Shield – 18.22 million
  6. Super Mario Odyssey – 18.06 million
  7. Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee! – 12.20 million
  8. Super Mario Party – 10.94 million
  9. Splatoon 2 – 10.71 million
  10. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe – 7.44 million

The numbers above are worldwide sales and include retail, digital, and copies bundled with hardware all combined. Nintendo has also revealed that Switch hardware lifetime sales have now reached more than 61 million units, equalling the NES.

Any surprises in that top ten? Feel free to share your thoughts below.

Nintendo Switch Users Should Get This Soothing Free Animal Crossing Tetris Theme This Weekend – Lifehacker

Illustration for article titled Nintendo Switch Users Should Get This Soothing Free Animal Crossing Tetris Theme This Weekend

By in large my Switch has been used to play exactly three things over the past few months: Mario Kart, Tetris, and Animal Crossing. This weekend, those last two are combining together in an Animal Crossing Maximus Cup within Tetris 99. If you “win” the competition you score the Animal Crossing theme forever within the Tetris app, and I’m here to tell you that it’s a thing you want, even if you don’t play Animal Crossing.

Tetris 99 is a free download with a Nintendo Online subscription, so if you’ve been playing Animal Crossing online then you can download Tetris 99 for free. Do that.

The Animal Crossing theme is essentially a skin over the existing game, complete with Animal Crossing sound effects and that relaxing background music from the game. It’s available just this weekend if you don’t win it forever. I played it a bit yesterday and could almost feel my blood pressure dropping with each game. The combo of Tetris and Animal Crossing jams is pretty great, at least it is for me.

If you’re not familiar, Tetris 99 is a battle-style came where you essentially play Tetris against 98 other people to try to reach “Tetris Maximus.” Depending on how good you are, and how good the people you’re playing against are, games typically last anywhere between a few seconds and around two or three minutes.

During the pandemic, I’ve personally found it to be a nice break between tasks. When I get frustrated with what I’m working on I’ll take a break for a few minutes to play a game. Since the games are so short, it’s an option that lets me play and disconnect briefly without getting sucked into something more time consuming (like working on my island).

The “Maximus Cup” is less a competition against others and more a personal competition to gather 100 points over the course of the weekend.

You get points for every game you play in. If you manage to come in first in a Tetris match then you’ll get the 100 points immediately. Second place gets 50 points in the competition and 3rd 30. After that, it scales slowly down in groups of 10 or 20 until you get to 99th place, which gets 1 point. I consider myself “good” at Tetris and getting to the 100 took me around 7 games. It’s cumulative, so you could technically get there coming in last place 100 times, although I think even the worst players should be able to do better than that.

Once you get to 100 you’ll unlock the Animal Crossing theme within the game forever, so you can use it again down the line. I’m pretty sure at this point it’s going to be my default for a bit. You also play with the theme in the tournament, so if you try it and hate it you can abort without wasting time racking up the 100 points.

Nintendo has done a number of similar tournaments in the past where you can win a new theme. My fave before this has been Ring Fit, which provides a pretty upbeat soundtrack to the game. At a time when a lot of us are a little on edge; however, you really can’t beat those relaxing Nook tunes. If you have a Nintendo online subscription you owe it to yourself to give it a try this weeke

Nintendo Goes Big With Latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons TV Ad Campaign – Nintendo Life

And it seems to be paying off

Have you seen this Animal Crossing TV ad?
Have you seen this Animal Crossing TV ad?

With more people stuck inside these days, gaming companies have been seeing large boosts in TV ad impressions just lately. In the US, Nintendo has been top dog in terms of ad impressions for a while now, as these latest statistics continue to prove.

New data from VentureBeat and iSpot.tv, covering 16th March to 15th April, shows that Nintendo took 55.4% of the gaming industry’s TV ad impressions in the country, comfortably topping second-place PlayStation which earned 13.3%. A large chunk of this, as you might expect, comes from advertising for Nintendo’s latest major release, Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Nintendo saw 713 million TV ad impressions between those two dates, all generated by 20 spots that were aired 3,400 times. The most-seen ad was the one you’ll find below, which received 120 million impressions alone. Most of the impressions came from channels like Disney Channel, Nick, and Cartoon Network.

Following Nintendo and PlayStation – the latter of which earned 171.2 million impressions from ads focused solely on Final Fantasy VII Remake, Bethesda was third with 147.5 million impressions, Xbox was fourth with 120.8 million, and GameFly was fifth with 58.9 million.

Have you noticed many ads from Nintendo or other gaming companies recently? Do you find yourself instinctively looking up at the screen as soon as you hear that familiar Switch ‘click’? Let us know in the comments.
