According to the NPD group's thorough and unusually keen sales analysis, Mario's latest block-bashing, Koopa-kicking, shell-sliding adventure was the bestselling game in the US for the merry month of May. Following closely on the portly plumber's hopping heels was Brain Age, nestled snugly in third place. It seems that New Super Mario Bros. was just the thing to wean gamers off that nasty heroine addiction.
The Top 20 best-selling titles for May according to NPD:
New Super Mario Bros. (DS)
Kingdom Hearts II (PS2)
Brain Age: Train Your Brain In Minutes a Day (DS)
God of War (PS2)
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (Xbox 360)
