As you can see, two Switch exclusive titles made the list in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Pokemon Sword. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is especially noteworthy as it originally came out in 2017. Perhaps even more amazing is that it managed to sell more copies in 2019 than it did in 2018 – in that year, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe “only” sold 458,000 copies, roughly 7,000 less than in 2019. 

You’ll also notice that only Pokemon Sword is listed here. Combined with Pokemon Shield, both games sold just under 430,000 copies.
