The NPD Group released a list of the best-selling video games in the United States in November this year. It is worth emphasizing that NPD tracks sales from retailers and obtains digital sales data from some publishers. Nintendo, along with other publishers, has chosen not to publish digital sales data to NPD, but that said, Nintendo dominates the chart, as you can see just below the table.
Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War takes the top spot with Nintendo’s newly released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity in 6th place. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe is back in the Top 20, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is still growing in number, and sales could skyrocket around Christmas.
