NPD Group has released a listing of the top twenty best-selling games in the U.S. for the month of December 2017. The results can be found below.

Switch has reached another major milestone. Based on the latest information provided by NPD, Nintendo has confirmed that its console is now the fastest-selling home gaming system ever in Canada.

Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s general manager and senior director, said in a statement today:

“The response that the Nintendo Switch has received from Canadians has been nothing short of spectacular. We’re thrilled to have seen such record-breaking momentum in 2017.”

Nintendo announced earlier this month that Switch had become the fastest-selling home video game system of all time in the U.S. as well. Over 4.8 million units have been sold in the country since launch.

During a video broadcast today, Nippon Ichi announced the latest information about the Disgaea series.

First, CEO Sohei Niikawa revealed that a remake of Disagea 1 is in the works. It will be released in Japan this summer. No information or images were shared, but given the success of Disgaea 5 Complete and the company’s commitment to Switch, this one should end up on Nintendo’s console.

Niikawa also teased the next entry in the series, Disgaea 6. However, we have even less information about this one, so we may not be hearing about it anytime soon.

Nintendo has shared new information about its sales performance ahead of the latest NPD report release later today.

In the US last month, Switch sold more units than any other gaming system. 1.5 million units were sold during the five-week reporting period of December. Nintendo also reiterates that “Switch has sold more than 4.8 million units, making it the fastest-selling home console in U.S. history.”

In announcing Nintendo Labo, Nintendo has provided a sales update for Switch in Germany. Thus far, the system has sold over 600,000 units. That’s better than any other Nintendo home console in the same period, meaning Switch has overtaken Wii.

TIME was recently able to speak with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime about Nintendo Labo. The first topic discussed is the potential to expand on the idea and the use of the Toy-Cons, of which Reggie had this to share:

“Can [the Toy-Cons] be incorporated into other forms of gameplay? Certainly. But right now we think if we effectively communicate the power of the idea with Nintendo Labo [and] really enable players to make their creations, personalize them, and enjoy the [inherent] gameplay experiences . . . We think that’s going to be a great way to start and then progress down the path.”

Nintendo has posted an official announcement for its new Switch project Nintendo Labo. We’ve attached in full below.

Nintendo has opened the North American website for the just-revealed Nintendo Labo. You can access it here.
