Prior to September, Nintendo’s system was the best-selling console in the US for a record 33 consecutive months based on units sold.

The market research company said consumer spending across video game hardware, content and accessories was up three percent compared to a year earlier, hitting a September record $4.4 billion.
Year to date spending reached $42.3 billion, representing a 12 percent increase compared to the first nine months of 2020.
The other new entries to crack the monthly top 20 were Life is Strange: True Colors at No.10, Diablo Prime Evil Collection at No.12, Sonic Colors Ultimate at No.13, and WarioWare: Get It Together a No.15.
