The NPD Group has released their full North American sales data for July 2020, and once again numbers were up big-time year-on-year due to players being trapped at home by COVID-19. Players spent $3.2 billion on games, additional content, and hardware in July, up 32 percent year-on-year. As usual, the Nintendo Switch was the top-selling console.

July’s top game was Ghost of Tsushima, which is Sucker Punch’s fastest-selling game to date. Paper Mario: The Origami King came in at #3, selling more in its first month than any previous Paper Mario game. The only other new addition to the chart is Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris at #10. Meanwhile, The Last of Us Part II held fairly strong at #4, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Animal Crossing: New Horizons filling out the rest of the top 5.
