As last year, Nintendo opened 2022 revealing which video games were the most played on Switch over the last 12 months in Europe. Predictably, Fortnite tore everyone up again.
With its incredible popularity and free-to-play distribution model, Fortnite was the most played title ever in 2021 on Nintendo Switch in Europe, a record that won for the fourth consecutive year. Two other phenomena, this time for a fee, that is Animal Crossing New Horizons and Minecraft, followed immediately after by the paired Pokémon Spada and Pokémon Shield.
It is interesting to note that the Top 22 provided by the Kyoto house includes numerous games published in the years before 2021, a sign that the great games are not age. The only titles launched last year are Pokémon Unite (free-to-play) at position number 12, Monster Hunter Rise at 13 and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser Fury at 20.
