Dark Souls 3

From Software’s Dark Souls 3 is a major hit in the United States according to the NPD’s latest report for April 2016.

The NPD’s Liam Callahan stated that, “The launch of Dark Souls 3 marked the strongest launch in the franchise’s history. Sales for Dark Souls 3 nearly doubled that of its predecessor, Dark Souls 2, when adjusted for days in the market.” That seems pretty appropriate, especially since From Software noted that it shipped one million units of the game in North America.

Insomniac’s Ratchet and Clank re-imagining also did brisk business, debuting just behind Dark Souls 3. “Ratchet and Clank had the best launch of any game in the Ratchet & Clank franchise when adjusting for the number of days sold in the data month, with sales recapturing success not seen for the franchise since the height of the PlayStation 2 era.”

By comparison, Quantum Break debuted at seventh place on the NPD’s Top 10 for April while Star Fox: Zero arrived in tenth place.
