U.S: Here’s The NPD Sales Results For July 2018

The latest NPD sales data has been released. This time, we’re able to see how well the gaming industry did for July 2018. Once again, Nintendo had a very successful month. Octopath Traveler debuted at the #1 on the overall software chart. In fact, a majority of the games in the top 10 of the overall software chart are titles that have released on a Nintendo console.

There were a lot of good words that NPD analyst Mat Piscatella and VentureBeat said about Nintendo’s software this month. VentureBeat declared that “if you’re thinking that Nintendo is just owning the lean summer months, well you’d be wrong. It has owned all of 2018 so far”. And according to Piscatella, “Nintendo is the top-selling full game software publisher for both July and year to date. Nintendo Switch is the only platform showing year-on-year growth in full-game dollar sales with gains of nearly 70 percent when compared to a year ago, despite digital sales on Nintendo platforms not currently being tracked by The NPD Group. Year-to-date sales of full-game software on Nintendo Switch have more than doubled when compared to a year ago”. Here’s the NPD sales data:
