The NPD Group released its North American sales figures for July, and, unsurprisingly, the Switch had another strong month! Yes, spending is down 10% compared to July 2021, but sales are starting to return to 2020 levels.

The best-selling game for the Switch in July was Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade Chronicles 3, but it only released on the 29th of that month. His JRPG, which is huge, got a big reaction at the end of his July, and he dubbed it a “masterpiece” in a review.

Nintendo Switch Sports fell a little bit, but Animal Crossing: New Horizons moved up a few places. And when it comes to new releases, Live A Live and Digimon Survive both made the Top 10 Switch games of the month.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 beats returning LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and elden ringBut first we went for a brand new multi-platform release — Multiversus, sadly skipping the switch for now. Founders The free-to-play brawler has taken the top spot thanks to his pack. So Xenoblade is doing pretty well against some stiff competition!

But also in a pleasant surprise, Digimon Survive, which also launched on PlayStation, Xbox and PC, was the eighth best-selling game of the entire month.
