Have you contributed to these games' strong sales figures?

More than three years after its release, the Nintendo Switch continues to be a sales juggernaut for Nintendo. The console is August's best-selling hardware platform.

NPD also said Switch set a new all-time record for hardware unit sales in a March month, and recorded the strongest first-quarter unit sales of any platform since the DS in 2010, according to their March report. The Switch's August sales doubled the number of units sold in August 2019. Madden is the best-selling sports franchise in United States gaming history and has been the best-selling title in its release month for 21 consecutive years, so its strong performance this past month perhaps isn't too surprising.

Video game industry analyst Matt Piscatella was once again on hand to break down The NPD Group's findings, explaining on Twitter that "Madden NFL 21's double-digit percentage dollar sales growth when compared to the release month of Madden NFL 20 saw it claim top-spot in August for the 21st consecutive time".

In addition to Madden's success, Nintendo will have cause for celebration when reflecting on August's sales figures. UFC 4 ranked as the third best-selling game of August on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The physical edition of the id Software classic will launch on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in two formats. Just recently, Nintendo has announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which is a prequel to The legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and one of the games that immediately became one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year.
