In September, the Nintendo Switch system was once again the top-selling current-generation console hardware, according to the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States. This marks the third straight month that Nintendo Switch has been No. 1, and the fifth time overall in the seven months since its launch. Nintendo Switch has already surpassed 2 million units sold in the U.S. alone, and has yet to go through its first holiday shopping season.
When combined with the Nintendo 3DS family of systems and the plug-and-play Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition system, Nintendo systems claimed two-thirds of the month's total video game hardware sales.
Nintendo Switch games again occupied multiple spots in the list of best-selling individual games of the month, including Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle from Ubisoft at No. 7, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at No. 10 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at No. 11. Also, the Metroid: Samus Returns game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems debuted at No. 8.
Nintendo Switch aims to continue its momentum into the holidays, with the launches of Fire Emblem Warriors on Oct. 20, Super Mario Odyssey on Oct. 27, DOOM and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim from Bethesda Game Studios on Nov. 10 and Nov. 17, respectively, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on Dec. 1. Additionally, Nintendo 3DS will see the arrival of Fire Emblem Warriors on Oct. 20, Mario Party: The Top 100 on Nov. 10, and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon on Nov. 17.

May and JuneYou really need to stop looking for that one market that makes Fifa Switchs performance anything but subpar.
Will probably win October because of Mario.
Wonder how FIFA Dietch did in US?

Just to avoid confusion later, the rankings shared in this mornings PR from Nintendo are packaged unit sales rankings at the SKU level.
The rankings we will be releasing later today will be packaged + digital revenue sales rankings at the title rollup level.
The NPD Group's QC process highlighted a data issue within digital data for Sept 2017. As a result, data will not deliver today, Oct 19.— Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) October 19, 2017
SW - Destiny 2 combined spend across packaged and digital also exceeded the launch month sales of Destiny, which released in Sept 2014.— Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) October 23, 2017
