Today, the official sales data for Mortal Kombat has been released courtesy of online gaming website, Giant Bomb.

Mortal Kombat has dominated all new releases and other games already available on the market by accumulating over 900,000 sold copies of the game, thwarting competition from Portal 2 and Lego Star Wars III: Clone Wars.

Ed Boon, the co-creator of Mortal Kombat posted on his official Twitter account (@Noobde) shortly afterwards explaining that the game had actually sold over one million copies as the data did not include the sales figures from the Kollector's and Tournament Editions that were released alongside the standard version of the game. Sales information was compiled by research company, the NPD Group. Expect a consolidated sales amount here once the information becomes available!

This is definitely fantastic news for Warner Bros and Netherrealm Studios as this already indicates Mortal Kombat is a commercial success given it's not even been a month since the game launched! Congratulations.
