However, Electronic Arts’s Madden NFL 20 topped the list As for Nintendo, Fire Emblem: Three Houses came in second place with Super Mario Maker 2 in third. Other games that made the list were Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, Minecraft from Mojang and Microsoft, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Grand Theft Auto V from RockStar Games, a game from Warner Bros. Interactive being Mortal Kombat 11, Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe for Switch), and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in tenth place.
In terms of sales, it looks like this was a good month for Nintendo in North America. Five of the ten best selling video games last month were published by Nintendo. Come back in next month to check out the sales for August.
The website for the Entertainment Software Rating Board (better known as the ESRB) has an all new layout. Things are much more organized on there now. One thing that was just discovered was the absence of the listing of EC for Early childhood rating. Well, it turns out I was able to get in contact with @ESRB via Twitter and they confirmed that that rating has been dropped.
