List of best-selling Nintendo Switch video games

This is a list of video games for the Nintendo Switch video game console that are confirmed to have sold over a million copies. As Nintendo shares the sales of their video games every quarter while most other publishers do not share sales figures per console, this list consists mostly of Nintendo-published titles.

By March 31, 2020, over 356.24 million total copies of games were sold on the Switch.[1]
