Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment has revealed that the latest title in the Mortal Kombat series has notched up sales of over three million units worldwide.
The figure makes it the highest selling fighting video game this year.
The title - for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 - was released back in April. In addition to the full game available at retail, downloadable content (DLC) has been released offering four warriors, including the return of some fan favourites.
Freddy Krueger is an all-new competitor in the coliseum, featuring two bladed gloves.
Each DLC character comes with their own move set, arcade ladder story ending and two deadly fatalities.
"We are very pleased with the success of Mortal Kombat, as it surpassed our expectations in becoming the number one fighting game in North America released so far this year," said Martin Tremblay, president of WBIE.
