Industry News: NPD: Nintendo Switch Was Best-Selling System In April, MK8 Deluxe The Best-Selling Game
May 18, 2017


According to a press release just sent out by Nintendo, NPD (the group which tracks 

videogame sales in the USA) data shows the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling game

system in the month of April with more than 280K units sold. This is the second month

in a row that the Switch leads the pack, following the record-breaking launch in March.

Combined sales of Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS (68K+ units sold) make up almost

half of all console sales in April. Moreover, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was also the best selling 

game on the software side with over 460K physical units sold (over 550K counting digital 

copies). This is even more impressive once you consider that the game launched on April 

28th and it lines up with the predictions of Jefferies’ Senior Equity Analyst Atul Goyal, who

called it a “megahit”.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also maintained strong momentum, ranking at the 

third place in this month’s best selling chart. Don’t forget to check out our review of the 

game, unanimously praised as a masterpiece.
