A notable fact immediately appears in the information in this month of June. In addition to the fact that no one was able to get rid of it, Elden Ring remained not only the best-selling game. Based on its revenue, FromSoftware’s Action-RPG is now among the top 10 best-selling games in American video game history of all eras and platforms, helping it stand out. Sit at the same table with the biggest Call of Duty and other Rockstar monsters. An improbable but very real statistic, which continues to make the Elden Ring an undeniable phenomenon for this year’s 2022.
That shouldn’t stop us from mentioning a few new features this month, starting with Mario Strikers: Battle League Football taking a place on the platform, while Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes suffices at the bottom of the table.
In the absence of major releases, we can note some interesting returns, starting with the returns of Overwatch, which were nonetheless 95 in the previous month and which we haven’t seen in this table since October 2019. And Blizzard will undoubtedly benefit from the excitement generated by the Overwatch beta 2.
Another great comeback, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, was included in the top ten, while Square Enix’s Action-RPG was at number 159 in the previous month’s ranking. An advertising-driven resounding return surrounding Final Fantasy 7’s 25th anniversary but no doubt more specific with its launch on Steam.
No need to look far either for the return of Monster Hunter Rise, which benefits from the launch of the Sunbreak expansion and jumps from 30th to 13th in the rankings. At number 56 last month, Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles took a second wind with its Switch version. We have less hope of being able to say the same about Evil Dead: The Game, a true shooting star that only lasted a month in the top 20.
Despite the big month of PlayStation 5 (we’re talking about consoles a bit below) Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 are no longer in the top 20, unlike MLB The Show 22. Still in line with the console stock, Marvel’s Spider-Man : On the other hand, Miles Morales is re-dyeing the tip of his nose (the 28th of the previous month). PlayStation Studios games also make up half of the top 10 games on the platform.
If the situation remains frustrating on the console front, the PS5 has resumed colors to allow the manufacturer to finish off the fiscal quarter on good terms. With greatly improved inventory, the PS5 is the console with the most turnover in June but also since the beginning of the year. Without selling a larger volume of consoles than Switch, which remains on top in the number of units sold both in June and throughout the year.
