Sports Games Dominate August As Madden Makes Run Up Year's Top 10

Sports Games Dominate August As Madden Makes Run Up Year's Top 10”

Sales statistics for the month of August have come out, revealing that Nintendo had a record-breaking month for sales thanks to their hybrid console.

As reported on twitter by video game industry analyst Mat Piscatella, the Switch, along with several of its games, had tremendous sales numbers in August 2020. "Madden NFL" is the best-selling sports game franchise and the third best-selling franchise overall in US history.

As it turns out, and despite this being a year in which the company has barely revealed any new games, the Nintendo Switch has set a new record in hardware dollar sales in United States history for the month of August; information shared by NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella. Switch unit sales were the highest for an individual platform in May since the Nintendo DS did so in May 2009. When compared to a year ago, Nintendo Switch unit volume has more than doubled.

Just last week, "Legend of Zelda" series producer Eiji Aonuma told fans that they will need to "wait a bit longer" for Nintendo to provide new updates on "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2".

It's not just the Switch giving Nintendo cause to celebrate. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ranked among the month's seven best-selling Switch games for the 42nd time.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons retook the spot as number one best-selling Switch game in August, after being briefly dethroned by Paper Mario: The Origami King back in July.
