Coming off of the holidays, the start of a new year can be a bit slow in terms of games and sales. That isn’t the case with Nintendo and 2019, however.

In the United States last month, Nintendo generated its highest February month hardware dollar sales since 2011. Also, the Big N reached the highest year-to-date dollar sales for Nintendo produced hardware since 2011.

Another round of data is in from this month’s NPD report. Along with the best-sellers on Switch and 3DS specifically for the month of February, we also have a list of the games year-to-date and have sold the best over the last 12 months. Continue on below for the full results.

Data from the December 2018 NPD report continues to roll in. Our next update specifically concerns hardware sales.

In 2018, we now know that Switch was the year’s best-selling hardware platform in terms of both units and dollars. Furthermore, unit and dollar sales are the highest annual total for any hardware platform since the PlayStation 4 in 2015.

Thanks to Smash Bros. Ultimate, December was a huge month for Nintendo. Switch generated the highest December month hardware dollar sales for a single platform since the Wii in December 2009. It also saw the highest December unit sales for a single platform since 2010.

More data is in for this month’s NPD report. Specifically, we have information on the performance of two Nintendo games.

First, the packaged software launch month dollar sales of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate exceeded those of the previous best in franchise history, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, by over 70 percent. As previously mentioned, it debuted at the top spot for December. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate also set a new launch month dollar sales record for a platform exclusive in video game history, exceeding the launch month dollar sales of 2010’s Halo: Reach.

Additionally, Mario Kart 8 finished 2018 as the second best-selling racing game of all time. It only trails Mario Kart Wii in lifetime dollar sales.

According to the latest data from NPD, Switch was the biggest winner in the United States last month. The system managed to outsell both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in terms of dollar sales. Additionally, Switch was the only platform to experience year-over-year growth in dollar sales.

Switch sold over 1.3 million units in the US during November. Interestingly though, the PS4 and Xbox One accomplished the same feat. This marks the first time that three console platforms achieved more than 1 million units sold in a November month. Moreover, it’s just the second time in history that any three platforms saw over 1 million units sold in a November period – the first being the DS, Wii, and Xbox 360 back in 2010.
