NPD: Nintendo had the best July month since 2009 thanks to Switch

NPD have released their video game sales report for July, where the Switch was once again the best selling console in North America. Not only that, it was the best month for a Nintendo console since 2009, at the height of the Wii mania.

“This is the seventh month that Switch has led in hardware dollar sales since launching in March 2017, and the first since December 2017. Unit sales of Nintendo hardware in July 2018 reached its highest point for a July month since 2009.” said NPD analyst Mat Piscatella.

Nintendo was also the best publisher for July (and the rest of 2018). In July, half of all best selling games were published by Nintendo.
