'DOOM 64' is Getting Physical for Nintendo Switch Release

DOOM 64

The August U.S. software sales chart also saw a familiar franchise topping them thanks to the arrival of "Madden NFL 21".

Meanwhile, EA Sports' UFC 4 also made a big impression as the second best-selling game of the month, setting a new franchise launch month sales record for an Electronic Arts published UFC title. "Madden NFL" is the best-selling sports game franchise and the third best-selling franchise overall in US history.

Market research company the NPD Group has revealed that the Nintendo Switch just recorded the highest August dollar sales for a hardware platform in US history. When compared to a year ago, Nintendo Switch unit volume has more than doubled. The console is August's best-selling hardware platform. Just recently, Nintendo has announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which is a prequel to The legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and one of the games that immediately became one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year. Pisccatella notes that it "has ranked among the top 7 best-sellers on Switch for 42 consecutive months".
