Yup, the classic fighting game reboot even overcame Portal 2 for the number one spot on NPD’s sales list for April. That also means the nostalgic Pokemon Black/White was unseated as king and even pushed back down to number nine on the list. Mortal Kombat sold shy of just 900,000 units in the month of April while Portal 2 sold around 630,000 units. That’s pretty impressive on NetherRealm’s part (MK developer) since Portal 2 was considered one of the most anticipated games of the year. See the top ten list after the break and keep in mind this is U.S. sales only.

1. Mortal Kombat

2. Portal 2

3. Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

4. Call of Duty: Black Ops

5. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters

6. Crysis 2

7. Just Dance 2

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
