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.

NPD Group has released a listing of the top twenty best-selling games in the U.S. for the month of February 2019. The results can be found below.

Media Create has been the go-to tracker when it comes to Japanese sales data. However, that may very well change following an announcement from the company this week in terms of how it will be handling the information it provides going forward.

In the past, Media Create has published full hardware and software sales from Japan. However, starting in April, the company will only post the top ten software ranking without actual sales numbers. Those who are interested in more specific information will need to work with Media Create directly on a paid basis – meaning the public will essentially be locked out of the data.

What does that mean for us? Well, until the change is made (which will be pretty soon), we’ll continue to use Media Create data. Nothing has been settled for certain, but we’ll likely switch over to Famitsu numbers after that seeing as the two are relatively similar.
