The top 10 makes for excellent reading for Nintendo, with Mario Kart 8: Deluxe continuing to sell well in number 2, Minecraft's Switch edition coming in at number 6, and Ring Fit Adventure and Super Mario 3D All-Stars also in the top 10.

Elsewhere, the excellent Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Just Dance 2021 are also in the top 10.
