NPD List Sonic Frontiers as 16th Best Selling Game of 2022

The open world has closed a lot of sales.

This morning, NPD’s Mat Piscatella shared a number of game sales statistics for December and 2022 on the whole, and as it turns out, Sonic Frontiers did quite well in a year with a successful Call of Duty remake, a new God of War, three Pokemon RPGs, and the eternal juggernaut Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The game ended 2022 as the 16th best selling title in dollar sales.

While NPD doesn’t publicly give the exact sales numbers, Frontiers ranked 6th in December (previously 4th in November) in overall sales. When split by platform holder, Frontiers didn’t quite crack any 2022 top 10, but the game did hit the December platform-specific charts with #5 on Nintendo, #9 on Playstation, and #7 on Xbox.

If you’d like to check out both the December and full 2022 rankings, the thread can be found here.
