Mortal Kombat celebrates 30th anniversary

Warner Bros. Games and NetherRealm Studios are proudly celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Mortal Kombat, the billion-dollar franchise that has sold over 79 million videogame units since the original arcade game launch on Oct. 8, 1992.

The latest entry in the videogame series, Mortal Kombat 11, is the fastest selling title in franchise history with more than 15 million units sold worldwide, while Mortal Kombat Mobile has enjoyed more than 150 million downloads to date.
