NPD: Nintendo Systems Again Top Hardware Sales For October

According to the NPD Group, which tracks U.S. video game sales, the Nintendo Switch system was the No. 1 video game hardware in October, followed by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system in the No. 2 spot. When combined with the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, Nintendo systems accounted for two-thirds of all video game hardware sold in the United States for the second month in a row. The U.S. video game industry achieved hardware sales of more than 1 million total units in October for the first time since 2011.

The Super Mario Odyssey game for Nintendo Switch emerged as the top-selling video game of the month on the NPD sales chart, even though it launched at the end of the month on Oct. 27. The Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild games for Nintendo Switch finished as the No. 10 and No. 11 individual games for the month, respectively.

  1. Obviously this is just being caused by hoardes of twinkie trucks overturning all over the world at once. The twinkie trucks are attracting hordes of raccoons, and the raccoons are being ridden by tiny cowboys shooting their tiny six-shooters in the air, causing a massive shift in the wind, blowing entire fields of four-leaf clovers from Leprichaun World directly into Nintendo’s HQ. Their luck will run out next month and we’ll be playing Zelda on PS4 by then. RIP Nintendo.
