After almost 14 years of long and excruciating waiting, Kingdom Hearts III fans have finally been rewarded. Waiting all this time, to continue the narration that two generations of consoles started (many, many games ago), has meant that the development team (Square Enix) really did a good job in order to make children come back many fans of the saga.
According to data provided by Mat Piscatella, through his Twitter profile, it seems that to dominate the sales and temporarily win the first place of the most sold games currently in 2019 in America there is Kingdom Hearts III.

According to the information declared by the American analyst (of the well-known NPD group), with his recent update and the introduction of the critical mode, Kingdom Hearts III has risen by many positions; thus coming to dominate the podium. Followed directly by the two looter-shooters developed by Ubisoft and BioWare respectively.
Top 10 of the best-selling games (currently) in 2019 in America:
- Kingdom Hearts III
- The Division 2
- Resident Evil 2
- Red Dead Redemption II
- Jump Force
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
- Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
- New Super Mario Bros. Ultimate
Excellent results also obtained by Capcom with the reboot of his Resident Evil 2 , with which he brought many new players closer to the horror world, winking at the biggest fans of the saga. Despite the difficulty of the new game FromSoftware, Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice , and the enormous stress felt among the various players, we find it in a good position; thus far exceeding the data obtained by Dark Souls III in 2016 . Even Rockstar Games has been very successful in the US in recent months with the second chapter of Red Dead Redemption, prequel to the first title released.
