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)


    1. Hahahahahahaha
      That’s it just #5
      Nintendo games will not reach number one spot
      That’s what happened when you don’t put voice chat in the game
      boowahahahahahahahahaha die nintendo die die die already


      1. I’m sorry, were you not educated in English? You should only comment if you have learned our language. To put into terms that even you could understand: Splatoon, 3 days sold, one console, reaches #5. That is superb. Or could you not even understand that? Guess there’s no helping an uneducated swine.

        Good day. ^^


      2. Yah your Nintendo sucks balls in the azz
        That’s the only they can do number five


      3. “Balls”? So you are an uneducated swine. Maybe you can use a more specific term, well, I don’t even think you’ll need a specific term. Considering you’ll probably never use them throughout your life.

      4. I can exactly describe the condition of your children… One is having problems in school because of his lack of fatherly parenting because his father is too busy trolling on a random Nintendo news site, accomplishing nothing… Same with the other two… But really, trolls aren’t taken kindly here, just being honest.

      5. I feel bad for your children then. (If you are what you claim to be) As their father talks like a thug and can’t seem to work out a propper grammar structure.

        If you have kids, you need to be a role model. A positive role model. Teach them about good grammar. Don’t let them start talking like a thug. And just, educate them so they can have a happy life.

      6. “You should only comment if you have learned our language”

        Regardless of what he said, you are a piece of shit for even saying this. I know he’s a useless troll but invalidating someone’s opinion (no I’m not referring to that waste of flesh) just because they don’t know a language you speak is just shitty of you. We have many users here from around the world that go to lengths to learn a second and at times even third language to be able to communicate with us.

      7. Yeah, bad grammar on my part. I had a *facedesk* moment. Doesn’t excuse any troll though. I will go after a troll to the highest degree regardless of what they are trolling. Whether it be a video game site, or a post about gay/bi marriage. (Which I am not against, don’t kill me. Supporter)

        Also; I meant the part about the “language” as in when he’s not talking like a thug or whatever. Ticks the hell outta me. I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

        Doesn’t mean I won’t stop insulting the trolls.

      8. You must be one of the dumbest people in your country. Must be from Romania. Splatoon sales are for two to three days. It is out ranking multiplatform games. No wonder the UK wants to leave the European union.



      9. why would you want voice chat??? so kids and raging adults can scream at people constantly??? it was a good move not to put it in – everyone agrees.


      10. You are kind of an idiot because Splatoon only came out on the 29th of May only giving it 3 days for sales all on only a single console. If it got number 5 at that rate compared to the other games that are on 4 consoles then Splatoon can actually have a chance to get top placing.

        K, bai.


    2. Not to mention Splatoon was only out for a couple days during the month of May. It only had 3 days to come in 5th place, while Witcher 3 had 12 days to come in first.

  1. This is actually really surprising. I wonder what the numbers would’ve been like if the game had released a week or even 2 before its original launch date. Congrats Ninty, now please, advertise all your games like this, at least all the triple A ones.

  2. Damn, Wow SuperPs4 got OWNED heavily, especially after he said he 27 year old with 3 kids,shouldn’t have come here trolling and say something like that Bitch.


  3. Wow… that is damn impressive… will the momentum keep going however? It’s a great accomplishment being a new IP and on one console but I wonder if it will stay strong or drop off within a couple of weeks. Hope not, I want a sequel!


  4. One question I have though are what is the comparison between COD Advanced Warfare numbers compared to Splatoon’s? I know COD is a high selling franchise but it’s been out for quite awhile now and May doesn’t exactly have much competition going around, lol. Not to demote the accomplishment of Splatoon but I just want to know the numbers to understand the hurdle it overcame.
