Pokémon: Sword and Shield best selling game


The latest installment of Pokemon rises to the top of the Nintendo Switch top sellers and becomes the third best-selling in the main story.

Nintendo today shared the results of fiscal year 2020, in which it updates the number of sales accumulated by the Nintendo Switch exclusives. In addition to the amazing case of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which in just six months has become the second best-selling game on the platform (with more than 22 million units), highlights the performance of Pokémon: Sword and Shield. Launched in late 2019, the latest installment in the Game Freak saga climbs to fifth place among Nintendo Switch exclusives and, even more importantly, scales to third place in the franchise ranking.
