The new Elden Ring in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

The new Elden Ring in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga ...

One of the best debuts of the year in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. In fact, it is already the second best-selling game in the United States in 2022, behind only Elden Ring. A significant portion of that is due to its appeal to children and availability on the Nintendo Switch, which benefited greatly.

According to Mat Piscatella, the NPD Group games analyst, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was the most popular game in the month. It made the highest launch month dollar sales for any LEGO title in history, with one month ranking among the top six best-selling LEGO games ever.

It is also the first non-Nintendo game since Monster Hunter: Rise in March 2021 to finish a month No. 1 on the Switch sales chart. And that tells the story of what is happening with this game. It''s appealing.

This Lego Star Wars has gained an audience on the new-gen consoles, on Steam, and on Nintendo Switch. That last one is crucial because the family audience has enormous purchasing power. It is the latest trend that drives Mario Kart 8 into the top ten best-selling games every month.

The game is so successful that it has even sold Pokemon Legends: Arceus (physical only) and Horizon: Forbidden West year-to-date. But these games are not just platform exclusives. However, these games haven''t hindered them from performing games like Dying Light 2.

The Skywalker Saga should have strong legs as families look to pick it up during the holidays. Now, the question is whether this success is enough to enable Warner Bros., Travelers Tales, and Disney to develop a sequel.
