The NPD Group today released US video game sales data for July 2017, covering both games and hardware. Nintendo’s Switch shooter Splatoon 2 was the best-selling game of the month, with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Grand Theft Auto V, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild making up the Top 5.

Year-to-date, Ghost Recon: Wildlands remains the best-selling game of 2017, with Ubisoft still the top-selling publisher for the year.

In total, game sales for July 2017 amounted to $277 million, which is up 17 percent year-over-year. Year-to-date, dollar sales came to $2.7 billion, up less than 1 percent.

Dollar sales of video game software and PC games software combined to reach $277 million in July 2017, up 17 percent versus year ago. Year to date, dollar sales are up less than 1 percent compared to year ago at $2.7 billion.

With Splatoon 2 (No. 1), Breath of the Wild (No. 5), and Mario Kart 8 (No. 7), Nintendo had three of the month’s top seven best-selling games on the all-platforms chart.

NPD analyst Mat Piscatella also mentioned in the report that RPGs are “experiencing a market resurgence.”

“Driven by titles such as (in alphabetical order) Horizon: Zero Dawn, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Nier: Automata, Nioh, and Persona 5, year-to-date dollar sales of RPGs has grown more than 50 percent when compared to the same period a year ago,” Piscatella said.

Also of note is that three Call of Duty games made the Top 20 chart, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, Black Ops III, and Infinite Warfare. “Over the 12-month period ending July 2017, Call of Duty is the market’s best-selling video game franchise and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare the best-selling game,” Piscatella said.

In terms of hardware sales, the Nintendo Switch was the top-selling platform of the month in the US. You can see our full report on US hardware sales here.
