Today the NPD released its monthly statistics painting the portrait of the video game market in the United States during the month of June.
The stats were broadcasted by Analyst Mat Piscatella on his YouTube channel, and you can watch the full video at the bottom of the post.
We learn that the Nintendo Switch is the best-selling platform of the month, and is also at the top for the first half of the year. This is across both dollar and unit salwes.
Super Mario Maker 2 is the best-selling game for June, followed by Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled. Super Mario Maker 2 set a new launch record for the Mario Maker franchise, and the same can be said for Crash related to its own series. It even beat Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy’s debut.
Mortal Kombat 11 remains the best selling game of the first half of the year followed by Kingdom Hearts III. Speaking of the last twelve months, Red Dead Redemption II is holding onto its primacy, followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
