NPD Group has revealed that Splatoon 2 was the best-selling game across the United States last month, outpacing Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy as its closest competitor.

Nintendo of America will also be pleased to see The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and ARMS in the Top 20, with the first two Nintendo Switch exclusives sat in the Top 10.

“Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 was the best-selling title of the month,” explained NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella. “Three of the month’s top seven best-selling games are published by Nintendo. Nintendo was also the best-selling software publisher in July.”
