Just as NetherRealms closes support in view of its new game, it turns out that Mortal Kombat 11 has totaled over 12 million copies sold, in addition to those of the previous chapters for a total of about 73 million copies. This result makes the Warner Bros. series the most popular fighting game in history, at least according to the data collected by ZhugeEX, which in any case should be based on official sources.
In a rather surprising way, Mortal Kombat manages to surpass even Smash Bros. and finds himself considerably higher than Tekken and Street Fighter, representing the most profile blockbuster in the fighting genre, especially thanks to the chapters more recent apparently, given the huge sales also of Mortal Kombat 11.
This would be the ranking of the best-selling fighting games in history, based on the data made public on the most famous series updated between March and April 2021:
Mortal Kombat - 73 million copies Smash Bros. - 65.1 million copies (data updated to March 31, 2021) Tekken - 51 million copies (data updated to April 2021) Street Fighter - 46 million copies ( data updated to March 31, 2021)
