Mortal Kombat 11 was released just over a month ago, and yet not only it continues to impress with everything it has to offer, but now it continues to achieve more and more financial hits across the board, landing Krushing Blows and Fatal Blows to all of it's competition, on top of making it to the top of the PS Store Download Charts for April on PS4 as we have reported 2 weeks ago.

An article on Business Insider which was informed by Ed Boon on Twitter, MK11 has managed to top the sales charts on all three major consoles (PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch) in the month of it's release (April), according to industry analysts at the NPD Group, and has generated $427 million in revenue during April 2019. The data includes both digital and physical sales figures from more than a dozen different publishers in the United States. That is such a huge, rare feat that no other game from any series or genre has managed to achieve in more then a decade. According to the article, the last game to achieve that feat was "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock" in October 2007.

But that's not all, a more detailed information piece from the NPD Group analysis came from an article on Eventhubs, confiming that MK11 has toped the sales for April not just on consoles, but on PC as well. In Addition, MK11 has become the 2nd best-selling game of 2019 to date, only behind Kingdom Hearts 3. And also, it is the first time that a 3rd party game has led the monthly Switch best-sellers charts since Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle in September 2017.

And finally, according to a report on Super Data, MK11 has the best digital launch in the history of the franchise, as it sold 1.8 million digital units across console and PC in May, up from 400,000 units for Mortal Kombat XL in 2015, largely due to rising digital download rates on console.

Without question, MK11 is a smash hit, achieving feats from all angles, and it looks like it's not going to stop anytime soon. It surely is a real Fatality to all of it's competition.
