Final Fantasy XIII falls short in April NPD

JRPG behemoth falls short

The NPD numbers for the US gaming market have been pretty disappointing for April.

None more so than for Square Enix's biggest title of the year, Final Fantasy XIII.

After placing third in March's sales charts, Final Fantasy XIII dropped out of April's top 20 completely.

April's winner was Nintendo who had titles in second (Pokemon Soul Silver), third (New Super Mario Bros Wii), fourth (Pokemon Heart Gold), sixth (Wii Sports Resort) and eighth (Wii Fit Plus). Splinter Cell Conviction just managed fend off Nintendo off and grab the top spot.

Thanks Gamasutra.
