Mortal Kombat X Had the Franchise's Biggest Launch Ever

Mortal Kombat X, which came out yesterday in New Zealand and earlier this week in other regions, has had the biggest launch in the history of the franchise, according to series co-creator Ed Boon.

In a series of tweets, Boon revealed that millions of people were playing the game across console, PC, and the free-to-play mobile tie-in. 

Boon also acknowledged that the game has been facing some unspecified issues, and said that Netherrealm are working "like mad" to fix them. 

Mortal Kombat X came out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this week, with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions to follow later this year. An iOS tie-in that shares the same name came out earlier this month, and will be coming to Android soon. It's a "fighting and card collection game" that can unlock rewards for the main game, in a similar fashion to the mobile version of Injustice: Gods Among Us.
