Nintendo Switch best-selling hardware platform for both December and the 2020 year – My Nintendo News

The NPD December charts have arrived and it was the Nintendo Switch system which came out on top followed by Sony’s PlayStation 5 console. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been an incredible sales success for the Kyoto-based company in the United States and is the best-selling Nintendo game since Wii Fit Plus in 2010. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War came out as the best-selling game of 2020, though of course it’s a multiplatform game. Here’s the best-selling games for December 2020:

“In 2020, [Animal Crossing: New Horizons] achieved the highest physical dollar sales for a Nintendo-published game in a calendar year since Wii Fit Plus in 2010,” said NPD’s VG industry analyst, Mat Piscatella.

“Annual dollar sales of Nintendo Switch hardware were the second highest for an individual platform in a single calendar year in US history,” said Piscatella. “Only the 2008 dollar sales of Nintendo Wii were higher.”
