Some extra data is now available from the latest NPD report. Shared by NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella, we have a look at the top ten best-selling Switch and 3DS games in the United States last year.

Here’s how things panned out:

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.
