Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is on top for the Nintendo Switch.
Have you ever wondered just how popular some fighting games are? For the United States at least, NPD analyst Mat Piscatella broke down the best-selling fighting games as of October 2019 end. Surprisingly, Mortal Kombat X is on top for both the PS4 and Xbox One.
Though these lists are only the top five best-selling fighters till date, it’s still interesting to behold. In terms of dollar sales, Mortal Kombat X is on top for both consoles. Mortal Kombat 11 is in second place for PS4 while Injustice 2, another NetherRealm property, ranks second on Xbox One (followed by Mortal Kombat 11).
Of course, seeing the Dragon Ball Xenoverse titles in the rankings isn’t too strange. Neither is the fact that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tops the best-selling fighters for Nintendo Switch with Pokken Tournament DX in second place. It’s worth noting that even if Mortal Kombat 11 isn’t as popular on Nintendo’s handheld, it’s still in the top five best-selling fighters.
