While I was playing in my Switch, I saw this and thought that it could be a interesting thread. Either way, you guys probably can see it in the console but here are the best selling games.

Edit: The list refers to the americas since it's not appearing in Japan or Europe newsletter and only in the newsletter of that region.

Ultra Street Fighter II is on the list. Man, that's pretty incredible to me.

Tons of really deserving software on there overall. It's been a great year.

The slow and steady approach worked well for Nintendo.

Few titles in the first half of the year but made sure to have a big title almost every month during the year.

Does it actually say eshop anywhere? This looks like best selling games physical and eshop combined. There's no way for example that 1-2 Switch has outsold Minecraft on the eshop. Or Overcooked being behind PPT.

If I'm right, then Stardew Valley being above Pokken for example says good thing about eshop sales.

Couple of conspicuous games are missing: Steamworld Dig 2 sold about 300k worldwide (as of a couple of weeks ago), so probably over 100k in US, meaning that titles in this list should all be over that number, unless there's some hidden catch I'm missing.

Seems quite high, though, especially for Xenoblade Chronicles 2: if that did over 100k, then either digital share is really high for that game or it did gangbusters (well, relative to the game's status) in the US.

Edit: Seems like it is not eShop only, so the parameter should be slightly different. At least we know that all games in the list did over 100k as per Steamworld Dig 2's absence, but the barrier could be higher.

I was wondering. The first pic suggests all games. Op, does it say eshop in the actual news item?

My takeaways:

- Surprised by no Rocket League.
- No surprise Minecraft and Stardew are the top digital-only games.
- Sega left sooooo much money on the table not doing a physical for Sonic Mania.
- Xenoblade 2's fans are probably hardcore enough that they'd prefer the physical copy. (EDIT: Unless this really isn't eShop-only rankings. If it isn't then this is a solid show for it.)
- I wish Puyo Puyo Tetris was higher but I'm happy it's on the list.
- RIP Fire Emblem Warriors.

Assuming this is only digital, I'm kinda shocked at Super Bomberman R and Ultra Street Fighter 2 being so high. I seem to remember those games falling off the eShop charts pretty quickly, while something like Overcooked has charted consistently since release.

Also, I expected to see Golf Story on there.

Anyway the biggest thing is that most titles are published by 3rd parties, and even if you discount Rabbids it is exactly half.

It doesn't say anything about the eshop (or the US for that matter, though it probably is considering the source). Do we have any numbers for the games involved?

I agree. This list must be both retail+eshop.
