Mortal Kombat 9 sells 3 million worldwide

Kongratulations.

Mortal Kombat 9 has sold 3 million copies around the world, Warner Bros. has announced.

It's the best-selling fighting game this year - more successful, even, than Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Warner Bros. video game president Martin Tremblay said the numbers had "exceeded our sales goals".

This no doubt makes a 10th Mortal Kombat game a sure thing.

Eurogamer's Mortal Kombat 9 review awarded 7/10.

"It's the best 3D game in the series by a long way," declared reviewer Matt Edwards, "and that's because it embraces the 2D heritage which always made Mortal Kombat its own kind of game."
