It has the highest launch month sales of any Fire Emblem game ever and has now become the #2 best selling game in franchise history in the US behind Awakening. Fire Emblem is bigger than ever!

On another note, how in the hell is GTAV still selling that well? You would think that everyone is the US would have the game by now.

GTA V has sold over 100 million copies worldwide, it makes total sense for it to still keep this kind of sales.

Good for Fire Emblem, though. Hopefully they keep improving the series.

I'm glad for the series selling well. It has come a long way alright.

It's also important to note that this ranking doesn't include digital sales for Nintendo titles. The fact that it has already outsold Fates in america with physical sales only in 5 days speaks volumes.

The over the top weab bait and waifu bs was never the thing that made Awakening explode in popularity. It was accessibility, and I'm glad TH proved this while improving on all the flaws of Awakening and also s***ting all over Fates.

How is Madden still selling well? I thought even the most hardcore sports-game fans were getting pissed at how the series has been going recently.

Bore of the Walking is still in the top 10 but Super Mario Odyssey is gone? The f*** is this bulls***?

Also this chart is worthless without numbers. Very few of the games even on the list are even new at all. SMM2 came out last month and already saw its frontloaded sales. MUA3 is a licensed game, which are never big deals nowadays. And everything beneath MUA3 are months if not years old. So it's not telling us anything. Newer games beat out older games? No way. But by how much? THAT is the important detail.

Yes, but football is still a religion.

Six of the top ten games in the July NPD are Switch games. Mario, Zelda, and Smash selling that well shouldn't be a surprise, but Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 selling so well is a bit of a surprise. I can only imagine how much Pokemon Sword & Shield will sell (even with the controversy).

It's like CoD, a bunch of 25-35 year old guys being loud and complaining on the internet will never stop the 10-17 year old army from buying it every year. Just like Pokemon in a few months when it inevitably crushes sales.

I'm not saying that as a criticism, just that the people complaining aren't the target audience anyway.

I guess, but it still makes me sad that the only arcadey sports games are the Mario sports games.
