As happens in the middle of every month, the NPD results for June 2015 are in. While Batman: Arkham Knight leads sales for the month, the sale story for Nintendo is an upbeat one. Splatoon has charted at No.05 in the Top 10 Selling Games in North America, and just like last month, Splatoon is the only platform-exclusive to chart.

Neogaf reports that the shooter sold an additional 290,000 units, and thus Splatoon now sits at 455,000 units in the States alone.

The Top 10 is as follows:

  1. Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  2. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited (Xbox One, PS4, PC)
  3. Lego: Jurassic World (360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3, 3DS, Wii U, Vita)
  4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  5. Splatoon (Wii U)
  6. Minecraft (360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4)
  7. Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
  8. Mortal Kombat X (PS4, Xbox One)
  9. NBA 2K15 (360, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, PC)
  10. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)

Nintendo issued a statement to Venturebeat reporting that hardware sales for Wii U and 3DS are upward in the first six months compared to the same period in 2014.

Through the first six months of 2015, combined sales of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems have increased by more than 20 percent over the same time frame in 2014. Much of this growth can be attributed to Nintendo 3DS and the new momentum created by the launch of New Nintendo 3DS XL on Feb. 13. So far this year, sales of Nintendo 3DS hardware have increased by more than 40 percent over sales at the same point last year.

Nintendo also told GameSpot that Mario Kart 8 has sold 2 million units in North America in a little over a year. By comparison, Japanese sales were last reported to have hit the 1 million mark.
