Mortal Kombat 11 dominates April’s NPD charts

Mortal Kombat 11 dominated April’s NPD charts. The hotly anticipated entry within the long-running collection topped the charts for not solely the general month of April however every respective platform it launched on. No matter how you’re feeling about its extra grind heavy features, it appears individuals had been wanting to get again into the fray and rip some heads off.

Coming in second was Sony’s Days Gone, which managed to tug second for each the general month and the PS4 chart. Regardless of some tepid reception, SIE Bend Studio created a bonafide hit with its schmaltzy, B-movie like zombie shooter. Questionable dialogue apart, Days Gone is earnestly silly and I can recognize that.

As for the remainder of the month, April was apparently a quiet one. The trade noticed an total development of 1% in spending, however that’s largely attributed to software program and equipment as an alternative of {hardware} gross sales. {Hardware}, as a matter of truth, has been in decline for the previous few months and fell round 29% in comparison with April of final yr. The Swap, although, continued its robust momentum and have become April’s greatest promoting piece of {hardware} (particularly the Purple/Blue Neon mannequin).
