Mortal Kombat


 

THE BUZZ: According to the honchos at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the reboot of the Mortal Kombat series has sold more than three-million copies worldwide, making it the best selling fighting game of 2011.

“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,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “NetherRealm Studios delivered a high quality game which has exceeded our sales goals. 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.”

EGM’s TAKE: This isn’t a surprise, given the quality of the game and the support WBIE has given the title, with plenty of high quality DLC. Hell, we even have Freddy Kruger to slash through the game with now. Let’s hope this success leads to other MK games and more fatalities to stain our brains. In the meantime, enjoy our favorite Freddy Kruger trailer.

Marc somehow survived E3. The crowds were big, the games were loud and somehow he managed to get a sunburn on the top of his big, bald melon. Yet, despite all of this, he had a blast, seeing people he only sees once a year, playing all of the new games, and staying up way past his bedtime. Next year he might even have a beer.
