We’ll have NPD’s official list of the top ten best-selling games in the U.S. for the month of April in a bit. However, some preliminary information has arrived just a tad early.

GamesBeat reports that Star Fox Zero and Bravely Second were among April’s best-sellers. The two came in at the fifth and ninth spots respectively on the individual chart. This is different from NPD’s overall top 10 (we’ll have that shortly), which combines platforms and other items such as special editions. In that list though, Star Fox Zero does appear at the tenth spot.

Earlier this evening, the NPD Group issued the monthly U.S. chart for game sales in March. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Pokken Tournament both made the list, coming in at the third and seventh positions respectively. But how much did each game sell?

Based on the usual leaks, it looks like Twilight Princess HD sold about 308,000 copies. Pokken Tournament also did quite well with roughly 251,000 units moved.

We have some data on the 3DS side of things as well. Hyrule Warriors Legends is said to have sold about 72,000 copies. Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which also launched last month, sold 25,000 copies or so.

We have a few more bits of information regarding Fire Emblem Fates’ debut sales in the United States, along with data for a crossover 3DS title.

Nintendo confirmed earlier today that Fates sold close to 400,000 copies between Birthright and Conquest in February, with digital sales included. NPD leaker creamsugar puts the games at a combined 315,000 units sold – less than Nintendo’s amount since eShop sales aren’t accounted for here. Birthright sold the most with 44 percent (roughly 138,600), followed by Conquest at 41 percent (roughly 129,150) and the special edition at 15 percent (roughly 47,250).

Moving on, debut sales are in for Project X Zone 2. The game sold 18,000 copies in the United States last month – not counting any eShop sales.

Note that Fire Emblem Fates and Project X Zone 2 did not have a full month of sales since they launched during the middle of February. NPD’s February reporting period ended on February 27.

Thanks to Brian for the tip.

Nintendo has issued a response to the latest NPD sales report. There’s even more good news regarding Fire Emblem Fates’ performance in the U.S. last month as well as the classic Pokemon re-releases on the eShop.

First, Nintendo says that Fire Emblem Fates sold nearly 400,000 copies when combining physical and digital versions. “This far outpaces 2013’s Fire Emblem Awakening game, the series’ previous record-holder in the United States,” according to the company.

In other news, Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow on the 3DS eShop broke the first-week sales record. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS previously held this achievement.

Head past the break to read Nintendo’s February 2016 NPD response in full.

Update: GamesBeat added this quote to its article from NPD analyst Liam Callahan:

“If sales for Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, and the special edition for Fire Emblem Fates were combined, this title would have ranked third for new physical software sales. The combined first month sales of Fire Emblem Fates would more than triple the first month sales of the next-highest game within the franchise, Fire Emblem: Awakening.”


NPD Group has released a listing of the top ten best-selling games in the U.S. for the month of February 2016. The results can be found below.

1. Far Cry: Primal (PS4, Xbox One)
2. Call of Duty: Black Ops III (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
3. Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
4. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm (PS4, Xbox One)
5. NBA 2K16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
6. Lego Marvel Avengers (360, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PS3, 3DS, Vita)
7. Street Fighter V (PS4)
8. Minecraft (360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3)
9. Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright (3DS)
10. Fallout 4 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

It’s important to note that Fire Emblem Fates’ placement on the chart is only based on Birthright’s sales, which outsold Conquest. If you count Conquest and the special edition, Fates would have been closer to the top. I’m sure Nintendo is very pleased with how the games are selling in the United States thus far.

More information is in from this month’s NPD report. We have sales data from the United States for one of Nintendo’s systems as well as two games.

First, in terms of hardware, Wii U sold roughly 40,000 units. Debut sales for Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam and Final Fantasy Explorers also came in at 71,000 and 53,000 copies respectively.

With the games, it’s important to remember that digital sales are not included. They also launched pretty late in January, so they only have about a week of data.
