“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,” said Warner Interactive boss Martin Tremblay.

Series creator and creative director Ed Boon added: “All of us at NetherRealm Studios are very excited that players have embraced Mortal Kombat. The game was a labor of love for us and we could not be more pleased with its performance. Fan reaction to this latest installment has made all of our hard work worth it.”

    Hopefully the game will get serious price cuts and keeps on selling. The best fighting game I’ve played this gen along with BlazBlue. Both games have both the gameplay AND the content + story.

    I just hope every new game from them will be hit and falling apart like before.
