This week’s surprise is Super Mario Party, rising to third after being at #29. The strangest thing about this is that Super Mario Party is more than 3 years old since coming to Nintendo Switch, so the public can mistake the game for Mario Party Superstars which was released last year. In fourth place we have Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, who lost first place but did not leave the Top 5, as usual. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is in fifth position, so four Top 5 games were published by Nintendo for Nintendo Switch.
Call of Duty: Vanguard was in sixth place, thus continuing to generate good sales for Activision Blizzard. Minecraft Dungeon is in sixth place, debuting on this chart for the first time, and unlike the main installment, it is published by Mojang on all platforms. Just Dance 2022 from Ubisoft ranks eighth, while Fit Ring Adventure for Nintendo Switch is in ninth position, representing casual games that also work for sports.
