There are a few surprise contenders!


May was a pretty good month for video games, with releases across all platforms, including new games like Prey And Fire Emblem Echoes: SoV, sequels like Injustice 2, and even re-releases of some older games like Phantom Dust and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time. But the statistics website NPD has revealed what the best selling games for each platform are, and the results for the month are pretty interesting to look at!


Injustice 2 has brought in quite a bit of cash for Netherrealm Studios, topping the best selling list for both Xbox One and PS4, interestingly, Prey and GTA:V made both lists as well, earning spots number 3 and 4 respectively on Xbox and Playstation. Nintendo Switch and 3Ds lists have much more light hearted games, with Mario Kart 8 topping the Switch followed by The Legend of Zelda: Breathe of the Wild. Nintendo 3Ds sales are topped by the continuous handheld series Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, and followed by lots of pocket monsters with Pokemon Sun and Moon taking the number 2 and 3 spots.
