The NPD today released physical sales date for the video games in the US during March. And much like February's top-selling games, last month had a varied assortment of titles covering the full range of consoles.

The ordering of consoles in the list below indicates which platform each game sold the most on. Thus, Battlefield Hardline and Grand Theft Auto V sold the most on Xbox One, while Bloodborne and Mario Party 10 were console-exclusives that performed strongly.

The NPD Group's Liam Callahan noted in a statement, "March 2015 software sales showed growth across all three eighth generation consoles (PS4, Xbox One, Wii U), collectively increasing by 58 percent versus March 2014. This is a sign of the health of the eight generation console space; especially when considering the strong March 2014 software releases (as a comparison) such as Titanfall and inFamous: Second Son."

The NPD's statement also mentions that last month's number one title, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D "would make the top ten software list when ranked on a SKU basis rather than a title basis. "One thing that the list above does not take into account is the full range of digital sales. Retail giant GameStop mentioned last month that digital sales had risen 41%.

The momentum for Nintendo software and systems should continue over the next few months thanks to a strong lineup of software that includes the just-released Xenoblade Chronicles 3D (New Nintendo 3DS XL, April 10) and Splatoon (Wii U, May 29) games.

Meanwhile on the hardware side, the PlayStation 4 once again took top spot as the number one selling console after being unseated by Nintendo's 3DS in February.
