More news has emerged from the December 2020 NPD report, specifically how it relates to Switch.

Nintendo has kept up its record with Switch again being the best-selling hardware platform in units and dollars for both December and the 2020 year. Additionally, annual dollar sales of Switch hardware were the second-highest for a platform in U.S. history. Wii is the only system to achieve higher dollar sales, which happened in 2008.

We also have an interesting tidbit about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. In 2020, it had the highest physical dollar sales for a Nintendo-published game in a calendar year since Wii Fit Plus in 2010.

When you think of third-party games on Nintendo systems, LEGO is one of the first things that may come to mind. After all, we’ve seen numerous titles on the Big N’s systems going back to the N64. It also helps that several LEGO games tend to release each generation.

Given all of this information, it shouldn’t be too surprising to hear that LEGO is the best-selling third-party franchise on Nintendo platforms. That’s according to the NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella.

Piscatella shared a couple of other noteworthy tidbits as well. LEGO is the ninth-biggest video game franchise in history in terms of dollar sales. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, LEGO Batman, and LEGO Star Wars II are the best-selling entries.
