The spring doldrums continue, but E3 is right around the corner. Not much in the way of new titles aside from Detroit: Become Human and State of Decay 2, but oddly enough this is a big month for re-releases, remasters, and compilations, including DKC: Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors, and Mega Man Anniversary Collection for Switch, as well as Dark Souls Remastered and Street Fighter: 30th Anniversary Collection.

Yearly Rankings

Note: Monthly & weekly rankings are usually updated daily on Amazon, typically sometime in the early to mid afternoon. Also, NPD's months, which use a "4-4-5" calendar, are not perfectly matched to Amazon's months, which go by the standard calendar. Some items in these rankings may be marked with a typographical symbol:

* Indicates item available for pre-order for release in a later month. Does not count towards current month's NPD numbers.
† Indicates item currently being sold primarily or exclusively through third-party sellers due to limited stock. Most or all sales don't count towards NPD numbers.
‡ Indicates used/pre-owned hardware. Does not count towards NPD numbers.
