Mortal Kombat clears 3 million units sold worldwide

Mortal Kombat took me by surprise, both as someone who isn’t normally into the genre and as one of those dudes that hadn’t played any of the titles post-Genesis. Having surpassed 3 million sales worldwide, Warner Bros. says it’s the highest-selling fighting game of the year.

“We are very pleased with the success of Mortal Kombat, as it surpassed our expectations in becoming the #1 fighting game in North America released so far this year,” comments Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president Martin.

Calling it a “labor of love,” NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon says that “Fan reaction to this latest installment has made all of our hard work worth it.”
