Limited Run Games announces DOOM 64 physical editions

DOOM 64 PS4 and Switch limited print physical editions announced

The console achieved the highest August dollar sales for a hardware platform in USA history, according to the NPD Group's data. It was announced today by NPD analyst Mat Piscatella on YouTube and Twitter.

Meanwhile, EA Sports' UFC 4 also made a big impression as the second best-selling game of the month, setting a new franchise launch month sales record for an Electronic Arts published UFC title.

In addition to Madden's success, Nintendo will have cause for celebration when reflecting on August's sales figures.

In May of this year, Nintendo celebrated DOOM's 25th anniversary by releasing DOOM 64 - originally released on Nintendo 64 in 1997 - digitally for the Nintendo Switch. The Switch's August sales doubled the number of units sold in August 2019. Switch unit sales were the highest for an individual platform in May since the Nintendo DS did so in May 2009.


Nintendo also had an interesting achievement with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Two publications recently claimed that Nintendo is planning to launch a "Nintendo Switch Pro" by early 2021 but the company itself has not addressed it. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ranked among the month's seven best-selling Switch games for the 42nd time. It's now the tenth best-selling game on Nintendo platforms in United States tracked industry history.

The top five best-selling games include Madden NFL 21, UFC 4, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Ghost of Tsushima, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The Switch has been enjoying strong sales for the calendar year so far.
