NPD: Super Mario Maker 2 and Crash Team Racing became the best-selling June games in the USA

               

Marvel’s Spider-Man remains the best-selling superhero title in the history of the US gaming industry.

Analytical firm NPD published a report on sales of video games in the United States from June 2 to July 6.

Total revenue fell by 13% compared with 2018 and amounted to 959 million dollars. Income from hardware decreased by 33% and reached 235 million.

The segment of console and PC games brought $ 386 million, which is only 1% less than last year. Accessory sales totaled 338 million (down 7%).

Mat Piscatella of NPD noted that buyers are still willing to acquire the game, despite the falling interest in hardware. Since the beginning of the year, American players have spent 2.6 billion, which is 2% more compared to 2018.

The best-selling game in July was Super Mario Maker 2. She set a sales record for the debut month among franchise titles. The second place in the chart went to Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled. The race also showed the highest starting sales figures for the Crash series, ahead of Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy.

At the moment, the best-selling game in 2019 remains Mortal Kombat 11. If we compare it with the other games in the series, the eleventh part is second only to Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat III.

NPD noted that Red Dead Redemption 2 never surpassed Grand Theft Auto V and did not become the main source of “cash flow” for Rockstar. GTA V finished the month on the fourth line, and RDR 2 went down to 12th place.

Marvel’s Spider-Man ranked seventh on the chart. The game remains the best-selling title about superheroes in the history of the US gaming industry.
