Elden Ring was not the best -selling game in the United States last month. This title goes to LEGO Star Wars in April 2022 : The Skywalker Saga **. This data comes from the NPD Research Group, which reports on the financial developments on the American video game market every month. In addition to the Skywalker Saga, no game has sold better in the United States than the top title from from software. We have already reported on similar sales figures in the United Kingdom. The Skywalker Saga is the most successful launch in the history of the franchise. Of course, we also tested the block game in the Star Wars universe and found a fun, albeit “only” average LEGO game.
The leaders in the USA
In the top 5 best -selling games of the last month in the USA, there are also MLB: The Show 22, Kirby and the forgotten Land and Nintendo Switch Sports.
Overall, Elden Ring has sold the most in the USA this year. It is quite questionable whether another game can still dethrone the soulslike in terms of total sales. The more than controversial Pokémon legends: Arceus is currently still in the top 5 best-selling US titles of the year. The offshoot of the Pokémon series has so far been in 3rd place. Another title that is often discussed, Gran Turismo 7 , is currently in position in this ranking in 6. We only had the most successful US launch in the last month the history of the franchise reports. However, this message is clouded by discussions about microtransactions and an Always online function.
Nintendomarken beaten by Star Wars
Kirby was also beaten by Lego Star Wars on Nintendo’s own hardware. In 2022, no 3rd party title Nintendo’s own brands has been able to hit sales in terms of sales. The last game that was able to celebrate this success was Monster Hunter: Rise in March 2021.
