Let’s get back to what interests us here, to know the best sales of the month of July on the continent of Uncle Sam. If they are not completely representative of the French market, or more broadly European, sales in the United States are a good indicator of the popularity of such or such title. During the previous month that passed, we had the right to attend the release of very pretty nuggets, like Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Nevertheless, Elden Ring, which holds its place as number 1 in 2022, remains attentive to this young and fresh competition. Despite everything, the title that smashes the records falls on the podium!

MultiVersus and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 wreak havoc on the leaderboard

We may be FromSoftware’s latest creation and be a potential candidate for the much-desired title of “game of the year”, but there are months when we can sometimes come across stronger than ourselves. But, just like Ring of Eldenwe did not expect him to steal the gold medal by this title since, in fact, it’s MultiVersus — Warner Bros.’ Super Smash Bros-like. — which swept the day by becoming the best sales of the month of July in the United States. A statistic that may surprise, at first glance, because the game is free-to-play, but the data from the NDP group takes into account the sales of the game’s different Founders packs (Normal, Deluxe and Premium), which justifies this first square.

Warner Bros. even manages to do a double blow this month since the company also managed to climb to third place in the ranking one of its greatest successes in recent months, namely LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The very good surprise of this month of July, even if he does not finish on the podium and finishes his race behind Ring of Elden, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 takes a very good fourth place. However, it could be that his success is even more beautiful because its position does not consider digital sales. A fourth place just with the physical copies, we can only salute the feat!
