NPD: Super Mario Maker 2 Leads June, Switch Continues to Outsell Other Consoles

But Mortal Kombat 11 still sits at the top.

The new kids on the block are making waves. Super Mario Maker 2 and Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled took the number one and two top spots respectively in video game sales in June, via NPD.

Nintendo also led the pack in console hardware, with the Switch selling the best in June and across the first half of the year. Super Mario Maker 2 set a record high launch month for the Mario Maker series, as did Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled for the Crash Bandicoot series.

Trailing in third is Mortal Kombat 11, which continues to be the best-selling game of 2019. There was one surprising rise in the placings, though: Marvel's Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4 crept up into June's top 10, raking in the seventh best sales of the month. A side effect of Spider-Man: Far From Home and the ensuing movie tie-in, perhaps?

Here's the top 10 for June, sorted by console and ordered first through tenth:
