Mortal Kombat is one of the most iconic franchises in video games, and its latest installment, Mortal Kombat 11, proves it pretty well: NetherRealm and Warner Bros. Interactive have just updated the game’s sales, which are proving to be colossal


A particularly successful episode, Mortal Kombat 11 has seduced both critics (18/20 in our forums) and players, with sales scores that continue to swell. NetherRealm, the development studio, and Warner Bros. Interactive, the publisher of the software, have just announced that the title has passed the twelve million copies sold worldwide mark. A figure that includes both digital and physical sales, reinforced by the release of Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate

on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Even more impressive, this brings the series’ total sales statistics to 73 million units sold since the very first game, released in 1992 on arcade terminals and then in 1993 on Super Nintendo. That makes it simply the best-selling fighting game series in history, ahead of Smash Bros. and its 65.1 million sales. The head of the saga, Ed Boon, made a small statement:

When Mortal Kombat was created nearly 30 years ago, I never imagined it would become the franchise it is today with over 73 million games sold. We have some of the most passionate fans in the world and we appreciate the support they have shown us over the years.
