The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console in the US in May 2019, according to figures from NPD. Overall spending on hardware dropped 20 percent year-on-year to $149 million, while spending on software decreased 11 percent to $641 million.

Mortal Kombat 11 was the best-selling game in the US for the month in terms of dollars and is now the best-selling game of 2019 to date. The second month sales of the game were nearly double that of any other game in the series. Days Gone was the second best-selling game in May and is now the eighth best-selling game of 2019.

Rage 2 debuted in fourth place as it saw a release halfway through the month on May 14. However, Bethesda Softworks does not share digital sales with NPD. It is possible the game would have debuted higher if it did include digital figures.
