Nintendo Releases List Of Most Played Switch Games

Number One Will Surprise Absolutely No One

Nintendo of America came out with a list of the most played Switch games, confirming what you all probably guessed just from reading the title. Yes, Breath of the Wild came in at number one. Yes, this is immediately followed by Super Mario Odyssey. There are some surprises on the list, however. Just take a look and see for yourself:

Xenoblade Zelda list most played switch games

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
4. Splatoon 2
5. Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition
6. Stardew Valley
7. Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
9. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
10. The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+
11. NBA 2K18
12. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Nintendo Switch
13. Fire Emblem Warriors
14. Lego City Undercover
15. Sonic Mania
16. Pokkén Tournament DX
17. 1-2-Switch
18. FIFA 18
19. Disgaea 5 Complete
20. Rocket League

I for one am legitimately shocked that Disgaea 5 made the list, although if we’re measuring hours played, that makes a lot more sense. Is it even possible to play a Disgaea game for less than 40 hours? Also, while it’s great to see a Mario Kart game on the list, it’s even more impressive that said game is more or less a re-release. This should give Nintendo hope that even more of their Wii U titles will find new life on the Nintendo Switch.
