The US sales survey from the NPD Group is out, and it's another record breaking month for Nintendo.

In the hardware race, the Switch trailed behind the Monster Hunter World-fueled PlayStation 4 in February, but did sell enough to have the largest first-year sales of any system in the history of the NPD tracking. No sales numbers were given for individual consoles.
