Nintendo Switch Games Tops The Amazon charts

Written by Ankit Gaba

Amazon has announced its 100 best-selling video games of 2017. While the file includes all of the game-relevant products the online retailer sold during the last year, the original lineup of best-selling games was dominated by Nintendo, which declared 7 of Amazon’s top 10 titles by platform in 2017.

The top-selling game on Amazon for 2017 was Super Mario Odyssey, the first primary Mario game for Switch. It was accompanied by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the Switch version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, while Splatoon 2, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild rounded out the top 10.

The PS4-exclusive experience Horizon: Zero Dawn was also one of Amazon’s most popular titles of 2017, coming in at No. 4. Call of Duty: WWII, which Activision promoted was the No. 1 game in North America by revenue, also took two spots on Amazon’s top 10 list; the PS4 version was No. 5, with the Xbox One version following at No. 6. Some of Amazon’s other top-selling titles include Destiny 2, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

While Super Mario Odyssey was the best-selling game on Amazon, the most famous game-related product was the $20 PlayStation Store gift card, with the $10 variant coming in second. The most popular console on Amazon was the Switch, while the DualShock 4 controller was the best-selling accessory. You can see the complete list of Amazon’s best selling games here
