In truth, Switch recreation gross sales are up over 123% in contrast with the similar week in 2020. Animal Crossing: New Horizons holds onto the prime spot, regardless of gross sales dropping 47% (it’s value noting that gross sales drops throughout the first week of the yr are completely regular), adopted by Mario Kart 8: Deluxe at No.2 (gross sales down 43%). At No.Three it’s Just Dance 2021, which rises two locations regardless of a 24% gross sales slide. Just Dance 2021 is accessible throughout all platforms, after all, but virtually 90% of the recreation’s gross sales up to now have been on Nintendo Switch (bodily gross sales solely, digital gross sales will not be included).
