United States: Nintendo Switch posts record August – News

No decline in August for the video game market in the United States, which recorded a turnover of 3.3 billion dollars, an annual increase of 37%. A month marked by the success of the Nintendo Switch and its games, as well as the releases of Madden NFL 21 and UFC 4.

As the announcement NPD Group, Nintendo Switch generated historic August sales, surpassing the Wii record in August 2008. No specific numbers, but we are told that Switch sold more than double in August 2020 than in August 2019.

A success which translates into omnipresence in the ranking of game sales: there are ten Nintendo titles in the top 20, while the Japanese manufacturer does not share its download sales figures. In addition to the inexhaustible Animal Crossing New Horizons, Ring Fit Adventure, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, NPD Group highlights the remarkable longevity of The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild. He never left the top 10 sales on Switch since its release in March 2017, and it is now included in the top 10 best sellers in Nintendo history.

However, it is not Nintendo which settles at the top of the ranking, but Electronic Arts with Madden NFL 21 and EA Sports UFC 4. Strongly criticized By gamers, the American football sim is already the sixth best-selling game of the year, while the MMA game signs the franchise’s best start since being published by EA. note that Ghost of Tsushima and Paper Mario : The Origami King, respectively 4th and 9th, have a good second month, while The Last of Us Part II out of the top 10 for his third month. Fall Guys : Ultimate Knockout, one of the biggest success of August, is not present since Devolver does not communicate its digital sales to NPD Group.

These rankings are established based on turnover and not on the number of copies sold. Download sales are included, except for Nintendo and Bethesda games and those made on non-Steam PC platforms. Take-Two has also decided not to communicate its digital data since last month, hence the absence of GTA V, NBA 2K20 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
