As you can see, Mortal Kombat 11 topped the charts across all platforms in April.

As mentioned, it was the top selling game of April for the Xbox One, PS4 and Switch, too. It also ranks as the second best-selling game of 2019 so far just behind Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts III.

  1. Kingdom Hearts III
  2. Mortal Kombat 11
  3. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2**
  4. Anthem**
  5. Resident Evil 2 remake
  6. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate*

  9. Jump Force
  10. MLB 19: The Show

According to VentureBeat the software sales for April were up 15% year-over-year compared to 2018.

However, keep in mind that Mortal Kombat 11 – while still performing well compared to other titles released in April – still underperformed compared to Mortal Kombat X‘s release in the U.K.

In fact, while the NPD notes that Mortal Kombat 11 was the best-selling game of April we actually still don’t know how it measures up to Mortal Kombat X’s release.

One thing we do know for sure is that given the amount of people pushing and promoting the game and suppressing the news of the females being de-sexualized and downplaying the grind, a lot of casuals were haphazardly lured into purchasing the game without knowing full well what they were getting into.

The game wasn’t just an anti-consumer vehicle to peddle a grind and convince people to purchase from the cash shop, it was also a cart that wheelbarrowed in the degenerative, regressive politics of Social Justice Warriors.

From Jax’s “get woke” ending to Shao Kahn quoting President Donald Trump and getting killed off by a woman, to the pride attire for Jacqui, to the removal of the “OK” hand sign “because of Nazis”, the game was riddled with Social Justice influence.

Even still, Mortal Kombat 11 proves that with a strong enough marketing campaign and enough influencers willing to dupe their audience into being pro-corporate pigs at the trough, anything can become a top-seller.

EA is probably wishing they had that kind of hype for Anthem, because it was one of the few games where people could see that train wreck coming a mile away and avoided it like the plague. Warner Bros., however, had a tight campaign with weekly live-streams and character reveals to keep people masked from the SJW agenda that eventually crept its way into the game and exposed itself after people bought it.

The real story here, though, isn’t that Mortal Kombat 11 had a strong first month, it’s whether or not they can maintain that momentum heading into June.

Now that people are aware of the Social Justice influences, the “woke” elements, and the grind, will they still keep purchasing copies of the game heading into the summer? A game done right with a strong focus on content over politics can see it have a long tail end on the market, like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which still made the top 5 for April. However, a game that attempts to subvert its audience with politics definitely runs the risks of cutting its own legs out from underneath it, and at that point, we have to see if people will continue to ignore the propaganda to purchase the game or if they will abandon it for something less subversive.
