April NPD: Let us show you our dominance

Someone (and everyone they know) must really be all about the Pokemans, because the Pokémon powerhouse rolled over everything else last month. Though Diamond and Pearl were released at the end of April, they still managed to move a staggering number of units to take the top spot by a wide margin over ... Super Paper Mario. And everybody's extra Wiimote (aka Wii Play) took the fourth spot over both Guitar Hero II titles.

Honestly, it was not pretty. We're almost a little ashamed, but what can you do when you're just this awesome? Oh, hey, and it looks like everyone picked up a new DS Lite in celebration, because the little handheld money machine dominated hardware sales as well.

It was a good month to be Nintendo. The numbers themselves are tucked away after the jump, but you already know the story: the big N is officially the juggernaut of the moment.
