It would seem as though Splatoon has performed extremely well in the United States, Europe and Japan. The ink based shooter held its own in the United States during June and was the fifth best-selling video game of the month. As expected it was Batman: Arkham Knight for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One which was the best-selling title. You’ll find a statement from Nintendo underneath the top ten chart, below.

  1. Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  2. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

“Through the first six months of 2015, combined sales of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems have increased by more than 20 percent over the same time frame in 2014. Much of this growth can be attributed to Nintendo 3DS and the new momentum created by the launch of New Nintendo 3DS XL on Feb. 13. So far this year, sales of Nintendo 3DS hardware have increased by more than 40 percent over sales at the same point last year.”

NPD: Here’s The Best-Selling Video Games For May In The United States

The NPD Group has revealed exactly which video games sold the most during the month of May. You will be pleased to know that Splatoon managed to slip straight into the top ten and came in at number five, which is more than acceptable. However, it was the Witcher 3 which took the top spot fending off the likes of Super Smash Bros and Minecraft. Here’s the best-selling games in the United States during last month.

But May’s biggest surprise is probably Nintendo’s Wii U exclusive Splatoon. The colorful shooter did not debut until May 28, which means it only had three days of sales on this chart. Despite that, it was able to come in at No. 5 overall. This is impressive for a new intellectual property that is not widely available on all systems.

  1. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  2. Mortal Kombat X (PS4, Xbox One)
  3. Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
  4. Minecraft (360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4)
  5. Splatoon (Wii U)
  6. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PS4, 360, Xbox One, PS3, PC)
  7. NBA 2K15 (360, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, PC)
  8. FIFA 15 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, Wii , 3DS, Vita)
  9. MLB 15: The Show (PS4, PS3)
  10. Super Smash Bros. (3DS, Wii U)

Rumour: Here’s Sales Data For A Number Of Key Nintendo Titles In The US

Once we have the NPD results through Nintendo usually gives us an update on how their software is doing in the United States. We usually get sales data for key Nintendo titles. A member on the NeoGAF forums who is apparently privy to NPD data has revealed how many units certain games have sold in the United States. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker has sold 326,000, ZombiU has sold 204,000 units, Bayonetta 2 has sold 157,000 copies and finally, The Wonderful 101 has sold 104,000 units. These numbers haven’t been confirmed by Nintendo so you’ll just have to trust the NeoGAF poster who published the US sales data.

Thanks, Michelle
