Nintendo have released their Q2 earnings report (up to the end of September):

41.67m Switchs sold, including 1.95m Switch Lites

Software:
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 19.1m
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 15.7m
Super Mario Odyssey 15.4m
Breath of the Wild 14.5m
Pokemon Let's Go 11.3m
Splatoon 2 9.3m
Super Mario Party 7.6m
Super Mario Maker 2 3.9m
Link's Awakening 3.1m
Fire Emblem - Three Houses 2.3m


Huge showing for Link's Awakening considering it was only out for half a month. Will be be the best selling 2D Zelda (currently the original I believe, at 6.5m). Good showing by Three Houses as well.

Mario Kart will hit the 20m mark by the end of Q3 too. The profit on that, considering it's just a port, must be insane.

AFAIK GDPR doesn't apply to post advertising.

I’d like to respond to this, but I can’t hear myself think over the sound of OR whooping.

There's one port? Or are we saying games released on multiple platforms simultaneously are ports now?

Pretty sure ad is making a funny, with people calling smash bros a port since it was first announced. Just like Splatoon 2

With my birthday coming up I've felt brave enough to start buying games again. I now have boxed copies of Sonic Mania, Axiom Verge and Hollow Knight to join my trio of mario kart, smash bros and fire emblem.
Got a few more games in mind that I wouldn't mind having.

They're all ports of other games that have required buttons to be pushed on controllers.
