And the most played Nintendo Switch games are...


Wait, Zelda's on this list?

Hey, listen, Nintendo of America has released a ranking of the Nintendo Switch's most played games since the system launched back in March. The list is filled with a plethora of Nintendo's first-party titles, but several indie titles and popular third-party games made the cut as well.

The list was released via the "News" section on the Nintendo Switch. It contains 20 titles, with juggernauts The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey taking the top spots:

      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
      8. ARMS
      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

      Personally, I couldn't be happier to see Stardew Valley doing so well on the Switch. That title seemed perfectly suited for a casual, mobile format, and its success gives me hope that other indies can find their way onto Nintendo's new console.
