Excellent to hear, I have always loved MK more than any other fighting game, glad to see it going back to its roots.

And for good reason. After the disappointment that was MVC3 this game came out and showed Crapcom who's still in charge when it comes to fighting games.

Still in charge? They were never "in charge," Mortal Kombat games could never match up to the depth of play and balance that Capcom/SNK games could. It's only really this game that has demonstrated a concerted, working effort to create an actually deep combat engine, besides just being gory.

I liked the older Mortal Kombats a lot, they were my favourite games for a time, but once you get into the other fighting games like KOF, SFA/SF3, Guilty Gear etc., there's just no comparison.

Good to hear...
Sequel should get:

Better online
More balanced characters
Characters with more variety of moves instead of the "Scorpion-like teleport behind the opponent" move.

<<<<<<SPOILE R ALERT>>>>>>

If they make another one, they'll have to come up with more new characters, though. Most of the good ones died in the story lol.

They could all have siblings to take their place. It worked for sub zero, anyway! :)

3 million units?

I was expecting it to have sold by now (after seeing it high on the charts weeks for months)

Either way, well deserved :D
