Fortnite And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Are The Most Downloaded  Nintendo Switch Games Of 2019

If a gamer is reading a list of the most popular or most downloaded games on a platform for 2019, there’s a good chance Fortnite is at the top. Well, longtime Nintendo authority Nintendo Life has shared a list of the 25 most downloaded games on the Nintendo Switch in 2019 and guess who’s number one: Fortnite.

Technically, the list Nintendo released outlines the top 25 games “based on Nintendo eShop sales in 2019.” However, Nintendo Life changed the name of the list because Fortnite is free to play, and they don’t want to confuse readers.

The game that has come in second-place is none other than Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The game came out at the end of 2018, and has been a force ever since. A popular addition to the franchise, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been at the top of the Nintendo sales charts since its release.

The rest of the list has some real heavy-hitters, including Nintendo franchise games Luigi’s Mansion 3, Super Mario Party, and Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

Everyone’s favorite goose game made it onto the list as well. Untitled Goose Game has undoubtedly been one of the most successful indie games of the year.

The beloved anime and manga Dragon Ball Z has two representatives on the list, and with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot coming out in a few weeks, the franchise isn’t going anywhere.
