Destiny 2 Stands Atop September Game Sales, But NBA, Rabbids, And Marvel Hang On Close

The NPD has released the sales for September 2017, slightly delayed from last Thursday due to issues with their calculations. Last month, Madden had control of the whole field while Grand Theft Auto V continued its insane sales streak.

This month, the release of Destiny 2 captured most gamers' attentions, topping the All Platforms list for combined versions. The remaining top five is filled up with NBA 2K18, Madden 18, and FIFA 18 in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th spots, respectively. The fifth spot, however, is occupied by Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, which likely places it as the most successful third party game on the Switch.

Another major note is that Metroid, commonly thought of as a niche title by even its developer and publisher Nintendo, placed just outside the top ten at the number 12 spot. Considering it was a 3DS release and does not include digital sales (as they are not given to the NPD by Nintendo), it is likely Metroid sold above public expectations.

Night In The Woods Announced For Mobile Platforms

Did you play Night in the Woods, this year's seminal adventure game about growing up, dealing with your own past as well as the past of others, and coming to grips with adulthood? If you haven't because you are too busy coming to grips with your own adulthood, Night in the Woods is coming to mobile platforms for your convenience!

Confirmed in a tweet today by the official Twitter account, Night in the Woods will be coming to unspecified mobile platforms (though they did specify no N-Gage) in the future, but iOS and Android are fairly safe bets.

No date was given, but the tweet did say 2018, so hopefully we will not have to wait too long. Check out our review of Night in the Woods here, which Elise gave a 8.75.

Lego Dimensions Comes To An Early End After Two Years

Lego Dimensions Comes To An Early End After Two Years

The toys-to-life genre has seen a serious fall from grace over the past couple of years. Disney Infinity was canceled in 2016. Skylanders is on hiatus, with a licensed mobile game due in 2018. And now Lego Dimensions, TT Games' multiverse addition to the genre, is calling it a wrap as well. In a statement released on Twitter, the team announced that no more content is coming to Lego Dimensions. This comes a couple days after rumors that the game would end a year before its planned three-year life cycle had finished. Even though the game's development is over, the Lego Dimensions servers and customer support will remain active for the foreseeable future. 

From building and rebuilding to the most bricktacular mash-ups, the Multiverse would be nothing without our amazing community. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/NEDbBXqjyZ

Lego Dimensions was a latecomer to the toys-to-life genre, but it quickly found a diehard audience with its playful mix of properties as diverse as Harry Potter, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, Doctor Who, and Gremlins. Over the course of two years, TT Games provided a constant stream of character packs and level packs for fans, but with that came a heavy price tag.
