Amazon has revealed the top-selling video game products of 2018, and it turns out –unsurprisingly– that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has taken the number one spot. This list –which you can look at right here– includes not only video games but products related to the medium. This means that the list is flooded with PlayStation, Xbox, and eShop gift cards, as well as controllers and consoles, but if you were to look at just the top-selling video game titles, then these would sit at the top ten:
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Switch
- Red Dead Redemption 2 – PS4
- Super Mario Party – Switch
- Marvel’s Spider-Man – PS4
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Switch
- Super Mario Odyssey – Switch
- Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu – Switch
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – PS4
- God of War – PS4
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Switch
As you can see from the list, Nintendo has definitely taken over as the winner of Amazon’s best-seller list, with the Japanese company taking six of the ten spots thanks to some heavy-hitting Switch titles; three of which that were released back in 2017 mind you.
This list seems to separate the different versions of the game as a different SKU, so if you were to put Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee together, for example, it would probably be bumped up quite a bit on the list, as well as both the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Still, Nintendo seems to have dominated this year on the online retail website despite these other titles not being combined for all of their respective systems. Let’s hope that Nintendo continues to dominate 2019 as they did in 2018, it won’t be easy, but we’re sure that if they do a couple of important things with the Switch, it shouldn’t be a problem.
