Sales Data ESA Canada Launches Monthly Bestsellers Chart for Canada; MW2 #1, FE Engage #2, Dead Space #3 in Jan 23

Hero of Hyrule

May I ask... do you really remember me?

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  2. Fire Emblem Engage*
  3. Dead Sace
  4. NHL 23
  5. FIFA 23
  6. Elden Ring
  7. Pokemon Scarlet/Violet*
  8. Forspoken
  9. God of War Ragnarok
  10. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe *
* digital sales not included

This seems to be a good initiative, I've always wanted charts for Canadian video games sales too. Hopefully this becomes an ongoing thing going forward, and also hopefully we can get some insight into hardware sales in the market as well.

Seeing Nintendo do well in Canada really doesn't surprise me either, as far back as I can remember Canada has been strongly Nintendo slanted (iirc the N64 outsold the PS1 here), so this checks out. Interested to see how this develops and plays out going forward.
Oh cool, always wanted to know top sales in Canada.
I hadn't realized there wasn't a public sales charts for Canada like NPD Group here in the US.

This will be fun to follow!
Shame Nintendo doesn't divulge digital sales; would be wild to consider how much higher these Switch games might have placed.
Wish we could have numbers included, like the Japanese trackers, but I'll take it

Good job Fire Emblem
It’d be cool too if we were ever able to get console sales breakdowns, as well as software sales by console breakdowns too.
We don't actually play video games in Canada. We just drink play hockey, drink Tim Hortons and eat poutine in our igloos.
Kind of cool but also kind of pointless. I would expect the Canadian list to largely track the same as the North America list almost entirely. Even if you look at this first, for January.

For the overall NDP combined we had:

1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) – Canada Rank: 1 (-)
2. Dead Space (2023) – Canada Rank: 3 (-1)
3. Madden NFL 23 – Canada Rank: outside top 10
4. FIFA 23 – Canada Rank: 5 (-1)
5. Fire Emblem Engage* – Canada Rank: 2 (+3)
6. Elden Ring – Canada Rank: 6 (-)
7. Forspoken – Canada Rank: 8 (-1)
8. God of War: Ragnarok – Canada Rank: 9 (-1)
9. One Piece Odyssey – Canada Rank: outside top ten
10. Pokemon Scarlet / Violet* - Canada Rank: 7 (+3)

The only real dramatic deviation is NHL 23 vs. Madden 23, which, duh, we probably could've inferred without sales lists.
