Along with the full-year financial report released yesterday, Nintendo has updated its list of ten best-selling software titles. The past three months saw very little shifting in the ranks, though the Wii U and 3DS lists tell very different stories.

With the exception of the last two spots switching, everything remains in order on the Wii U side of things. Nine of the ten games saw increases in attach rates, with only Nintendo Land dipping a bit (because it is no longer packed in).

Because of the lack of third-party support and a general slow release schedule, Wii U gamers are picking up the fewer stand-out games in larger numbers. Mario Kart is typically one of Nintendo's best sellers, but by comparison, the Mario Kart Wii attach rate was only 36 percent (behind only Wii Sports in sales). Wii Party, in the number 10 slot for that system's rankings, only had an attach rate of nine percent.

With few titles coming between now and the NX launch, chances are we'll see the existing roster continue to flourish, with little movement in most of the list. Here's the current roster, updated March 31, 2016, with variances from last quarter

  1. Mario Kart 8 (Last ranking: 1)
    7.5 million (+260,000)
    58.6 percent attach (+1.1 percent)
  2. New Super Mario Bros. U (Last ranking: 2)
    5.19 million (+110,000)
    40.55 percent attach (+.25 percent)
  3. Nintendo Land (Last ranking: 3)
    5.07 million (+50,000)
    39.61 percent attach (-.19 percent)
  4. Super Mario 3D World (Last ranking: 4)
    4.82 million (+190,000)
    37.66 percent attach (+.96 percent)
  5. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Last ranking: 5)
    4.8 million (+190,000)
    37.5 percent attach (+.9 percent)

    4.27 million (+210,000)
    33.36 percent (+1.16 percent)
  7. Super Mario Maker (Last ranking: 7)
    3.52 million (+180,000)
    27.5 percent (+1 percent) 
  8. New Super Luigi U (Last ranking: 8)
    2.49 million (+70,000)
    19.45 percent (+.25 percent)
  9. Mario Party 10 (Last ranking: 10)
    1.76 million (+110,000)
    13.75 percent (+.65 percent)
  10. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (Last ranking: 9)
    1.72 million (+30,000)
    13.44 percent attach (+.04 percent)

3DS software also saw little juggling in the ranks. Nintendogs + Cats was booted from the number 10 spot, with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D swooping back onto the list.

Attach rates shifted very little, with the largest pickup coming from Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which sold more copies than X and Y at the top of the list. The four Pokémon games combined for the biggest lift with Mario trailing right behind with Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros. 2.

We'll continue to update as the year goes on to see how the news of NX's March release impacts software and hardware acquisition. 

  1. Pokémon X & Y (Last ranking: 1)
    14.7 million (+240,000)
    24.97 percent attach (-.03 percent)
