NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella is one of the best accounts to follow on Twitter as he constantly provides interesting numbers and sales figures about the gaming industry as a whole and individually.
As you can see above, since the NPD Group began tracking sales in 1995, Nintendo has consistently been in the top for sales. Maybe it’s the magic from Nintendo’s developers and leaders because as we’ve seen the developers are constantly trying new things with their games. the latest Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are two examples of that.
While the Wii U didn’t sell well, the video games the system saw included exciting new games that have made their way to the Switch, including Captain Toad’s Treasure Tracker and Splatoon.
