The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console in the US in March 2019, according to figures from NPD. Overall spending on hardware dropped 15 percent year-on-year to $282 million. This is not a surprise as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One continue to decline. 

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 was the best-selling game in the US for the month in terms of dollars and is the sixth highest launch in Ubisoft's history. It is also the second best-selling game of 2019. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice debuted in second and is FromSoftware's second biggest launch, only behind Dark Souls III.


MLB 19: The Show set a franchise record and set a record for sales of a baseball game. The game debuted in third place. Devil May Cry 5 debuted in fourth and had the second-best launch in franchise history, only behind Devil May Cry 4.

Kingdom Hearts III remains the best-selling game of 2019.
