July 2019 NPD: Fire Emblem: Three Houses was the best-selling game on the Nintendo Switch


Every month, the NPD Group releases information on the top-selling games across all video game platforms in the United States. While it doesn’t account for worldwide sales, it does provide a good snapshot of one of the largest video game markets. Mat Piscatella, an analyst for NPD, has shared the results for July 2019. For this month, data was tracked from July 7 through August 3, 2019.

For the month of July, Fire Emblem: Three Houses was the best-selling game on the Nintendo Switch and was #2 for the month overall. Nintendo had six games in the top ten for the month, with Super Mario Maker 2 at #3, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance: The Black Order at #4, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at #7, Mario Kart 8 at #9 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at #10. With the Nintendo Switch also the best-selling console for the month, it’s safe to say Nintendo had a good month.

Here are the numbers for the July 2019 NPD results:

  • Total: $762 million, very slightly up year-over-year
  • Video games hardware: $169 million, down 22% year-over-year
  • PC & video games software: $340 million, up 34% year-over-year
