NPD released its monthly video game sales report for June 2017. The highest selling game the month was Bandi Namco’s Tekken 7. That makes June the second month in a row that a fighting game has taken the top spot in sales. Injustice 2 was the top seller in May and it didn’t slip much coming in at number 7 for June.

Other notable games falling in the top 10 for overall sales are Arms and Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy. Arms lands at number 5 on the list and continues to perform well even with Nintendo unable to keep up with Switch demand. Crash Bandicoot making it to no. 4 on the list is impressive as the game was only available to purchase for one day in the month of June.

The rest of the top 10 is filled with games we would expect to see, such as Grand Theft Auto 5 & NBA 2K17. It is worth pointing out that Nintendo does have three games in the top 10 with Arms, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, & The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Their performance can likely be attributed to the fact that the Switch does not have a deep library currently, but all three games have reviewed well. Absent from the list is the year-to-date, top selling game, Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Overall, game sales are up 1 percent year over year rising to $343 million. You can see the complete top 10 list below:

  1. Tekken 7
  2. Injustice 2
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  5. Arms
  6. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  7. Mario Kart 8
  8. Overwatch
  9. NBA 2K17
  10. Horizon: Zero Dawn

As for hardware sales, PlayStation finishes top for the second month in a row. The Nintendo Switch continues to sell impressively and should continue to do so as production is ramped up. Despite Xbox One on pace to out sell Xbox 360, it has not taken the top spot in sales since July 2016. Overall, hardware sales are up 27 percent year-over-year rising to $231 million.
