Just weeks after the release of Skylanders SuperChargers, it has been revealed that Skylanders is the 12th best-selling video game franchise of all time.

According to data compiled by NPD Group, GfK Chart-track, and Activision’s own internal estimates, which includes the sales of the Skylander toys, accessories, and games, Skylanders is not only the 12th best-selling video game franchise ever, but it has also been the number one video game franchise for kids since 2011. 

It should be noted that on Activision’s website, the company explains that the data only looks at North American and European sales. Are you surprised by Skylanders being the 12th best-selling video franchise of all time? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
