Warner Bros. has announced that the latest Mortal Kombat game (also known as Mortal Kombat 9) has sold the impressive 3 million copies worldwide on both platforms since its premiere on April 19.
This makes it the best selling fighting game of the year, beating Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which sold 3 million units.
Mortal Kombat has sold over three million copies worldwide, Warner Bros. Interactive has announced.
"We are very pleased with the success of Mortal Kombat, as it surpassed our expectations," said WB Interactive president Martin Tremblay. "We'd like to thank our entire team and all of our partners for their innovative campaigns and tremendous support of Mortal Kombat, as the game sales continue to grow."
Given the great sales, I don't think anyone has doubts that more games in the Mortal Kombat series will follow.
