Madden NFL 20 was July’s best-selling video game, marking the 20th consecutive year that a Madden NFL game became the best-selling game of its release month. Fire Emblem: Three Houses was the second best-selling game of July 2019, followed by Super Mario Maker 2.Madden NFL 20 immediately became the eight-best-selling game of 2019 thanks to the massive popularity of the Madden NFL game franchise. Our Madden NFL 20 review said this year’s entry had some of the best moment-to-moment gameplay in the series. However, we found other areas like the Franchise mode to be a bit lacking this year.

Meanwhile, Fire Emblem: Three Houses had the best launch of any Fire Emblem game in U.S. history. Fire Emblem: Three Houses is already the second best-selling game in the Fire Emblem franchise behind Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a triumph for Intelligent Systems, and we praised its mix of social and strategy elements in our Fire Emblem review.
