The Nintendo and NPD officials have announced the games and consoles that were most successful in the American market in April 2017.
The Nintendo Switch was once again the best selling console of the month. So the Nintendo Switch sold in April over 280,000 units in the US. The 3DS family also sold more than 68,000 units, enabling both platforms to combine almost half of all hardware sales of the month.
In the software charts, Nintendo could also take the lead. For example, the “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe“, which was released for the Nintendo Switch on April 28, 2017, could sell over 460,000 physical units in just a few days. The NPD, however, only took into account the figures up to 29 April 2017. Together with the digital sales, “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” according to Nintendo has brought over 550,000 units to the players.
Nintendo was also successful on other fronts. “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” has reached third place in the sales charts, while “1-2 Switch” and “Snipperclips” according to Nintendo have reached strong sales figures. The complete NPD report should follow in the next days.
