Here are the best selling video games of February 2021

Super Mario is the series that puts the Energizer Bunny to shame. It keeps going and going and going with a nearly endless cycle of new games, remakes and spin-offs. People are just as obsessed with Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad as they are Pikachu, Eevee, Mewtwo and Bulbasaur. Then it was no surprise to see 3D World at the top of the best sellers list in February.

I’m also happy to see Persona 5 and Little Nightmares 2, games that aren’t nearly as established, cracking the best sellers list as well.

According to NPD.com, these were the top ten best selling video games in February 2021.

  1. Super Mario 3D World
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War
  3. Persona 5: Strikers
  4. Marvel’s Spider Man: Miles Morales
  5. Madden NFL 21
  6. Little Nightmares 2
  7. Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
  8. Mario Kart 8
  9. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  10. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
