The June NPD results are out, and shockingly, it’s Tekken 7 at the top.
June turned out to be a spectacular month for fighting games, with Tekken 7 bringing in the most revenue overall, Injustice 2 claiming second place, and Nintendo’s Arms snagging fifth place despite that number discounting digital sales. The Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy also sold remarkably well, checking in at fourth place on the top-grossing list despite having only been out for the last two days of June.
In fact, the whole top twenty list is pretty crazy, so check it out. Keep in mind that the sales numbers aren’t completely accurate, as NPD doesn’t track sales data from certain digital platforms.

The end of June also marks the halfway point of 2017, and the NPD results showed some interesting figures for how 2017’s sales are shaping up. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is the best-selling game of the year so far, followed by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and For Honor.
Hardware sales for June leaned in favor of the PlayStation 4, boosted by the release of the Gold version of the console. According to one analyst, 2017 was the “best performing June for PlayStation 4 unit sales to date,” and the PlayStation 4 took home the title of best-selling console of June 2017.
The Nintendo Switch, too, continues to have a big impact on the hardware market. The Switch isn’t stealing sales from the Xbox One or PlayStation 4, however. Instead, the market is growing to accommodate it, with hardware spending increasing 19 percent from 2016.
