NPD’s Mat Piscatella is back at it again with more classic data. This time around, we have a look at the top ten best-selling games in the United States since 1995 that were exclusive.

Amazingly enough, Nintendo holds the entire top ten. Wii generated the most hits for Nintendo, including Wii Fit at #5. In fact, the entire top five is comprised of Wii titles. New Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart have to representatives each while the lone N64 game is Super Mario 64.

It’s time to say goodbye to streaming services on Wii. According to a Netflix email sent out to customers, such services will be suspended after January 31.

Dragon Quest X is somewhat of an odd entry in the series. Square Enix made it as an MMORPG, and it’s not available at the moment in the west. Perhaps that could change in the future.

Yosuke Saito, who previously was a producer, indicated that there’s interest in making an offline version of Dragon Quest X during the Super Dragon Quest X TV Fall Festival 10-Hour Special 2018 broadcast. He said:
