The Nintendo Switch is dominant for yet another month, according to April’s NPD report. According to the firm, the Switch outsold the PS4 and Xbox One in April. The Switch has been the top-selling console every month of the year. The 32gb model with neon red/blue Joy-Cons was the best-selling piece of hardware overall.

According to the NPD, total game industry sales in the US were up 1 percent over last year ($838 to $842 million). Hardware sales were down a precipitous 29 percent ($160 from $225 million). Accessory sales were up 5 percent over last year, led primarily by the release of the new Smash Bros. amiibo.

For the first time since Mario Rabbids launched, a third-party game was the best-selling games on Switch. Mortal Kombat 11 outsold every other Switch game in April, including Smash Bros. and Yoshi’s Crafted World.

Eli buys virtually every Nintendo title that comes out but has expanded his collection to include amiibo. He hasn't taken them out of their boxes, though, so he might be a bit insane. When not playing video games, Eli likes writing about politics and games. He also runs a decent amount. Outside.
