Yesterday GameSpot posted an interview with David Zucker, Midway's new CEO. Unfortunately only a small part of it is about Mortal Kombat:

GS: To what degree will you draw on the company's back catalog of known franchises, and to what degree do you allocate resources to develop new brands? Or go after appropriate licenses?
DZ: We are looking to strike a balance between our catalog of known franchises and the development of new IP. Midway is fortunate to have a strong stable of compelling franchises, and we plan to create innovative new versions of franchises like Spy Hunter, Gauntlet, Mortal Kombat, NARC, Area 51, and others going forward.
...
GS: What do you consider the jewels of Midway's back catalog?
DZ: Mortal Kombat is the best-selling M-rated franchise of all time with over $1 billion in sales via four major sequels since it first launched in 1992. It outsells all other M franchises such as Take-Two's Grand Theft Auto series.
Suffice it to say that Ed Boon and our Mortal Kombat team are busy at work developing the next installment, and we have every reason to believe that it will be the most compelling and innovative fighting game to hit the market when it debuts.

It is maybe the best selling MK game ever, or so I think.

Yes it is the best fighter ever. It wasn't before but since MK:DA came out MK has been becoming popular.

Midway said it was because of the new fighting system and the secrets. (MK Secrets comes to mind)

yeah, makes sense. It's just the whole concept of the game, and the big fan base!
