Elden Ring Tops NPD’s June 2022 Charts

Since its launch earlier this year, Elden Ring has been at or around the top of the NPD Group’s monthly charts for video game software sales in the United States, and it’s topped proceedings once again for the month of June 2022. That’s as per data released by NPD analyst Mat Piscatella.

That means FromSoftware and Bandai Namco’s seminal open world RPG has topped all but one month’s charts since its launch (with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga taking the top spot in April). Not only does it remain the best-selling game of the year in the US so far, it’s also among the top 10 best-selling games in the US of all time.

There’s other interesting placements in the top 10 as well. Mario Strikers: Battle League debuts at No. 3, while F1 22 comes in at No. 12. Overwatch has jumped back into the top 20 for the first time in nearly three years, coming in straight at No. 5, thanks to the recent launch of Overwatch 2’s beta. Monster Hunter Rise, meanwhile, climbed up to No. 13 thanks to the recent launch of its expansion, Sunbreak.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake has also seen a massive jump, going from No. 159 straight to No. 9. That’s thanks to the recent Final Fantasy 7 25th anniversary celebration, with the remake breaking into the top 20 for the first time since May of 2020.

On the hardware front the PS5 topped proceedings in terms of revenue generated (enjoying a double-digit percentage growth year-over-year), and the Nintendo Switch did so in terms of units sold. Both consoles also hold those positions for 2022 as a whole.
