Marvel’s Spider-Man Beat an Old Favorite to Become the Best-Selling Superhero Game Ever

Mat Piscatella of the NPD group revealed that, as of May 2019, Marvel's Spider-Man is the best-selling superhero game of all time in the United States.

Congratulations to Marvel's Spider-Man, the best-selling Superhero Video Game of all-time in the U.S.!

Aside from taking the top spot, Spidey has some additional presence on the list, thanks to the two games based on Sam Raimi's first two Spider-Man films in 2002 and 2004. Marvel's Spider-Man the big superhero hit from past year crawled into the top spot dethroning Batman:Arkham City who held the record for the longest time according to NPD who report sales data for video games.

In any case, only minutes after an apparently successful ignition, the rocket lit up again in a fireball and had to be doused. A prototype version of SpaceX's next-generation people-carrier rocket exploded into flames after the engine was being tested.

Elsewhere in the list though DC reigns supreme, as Arkham City and Knight sit at second and third respectively, with Lego Batman at four.

Speaking of Spider-Man, Conan O'Brien celebrated his annual return to SDCC with a special intro to his late-night show, Conan, done in the style of last year's groundbreaking animated epic Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The PS5 reduced Spider-Man's loading time by nearly seven seconds. From traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set pieces, it's Spider-Man unlike any you've played before.

That's according to the NPD group, who publish videogames sales figures in the USA, and it turns out that the PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man has, as of May 2019, become the best selling superhero game of all time. What makes it impressive in this instance is that the game is a platform exclusive, only available on Sony's PlayStation 4. Did you enjoy the game as much as we did?
