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.
