Over two years ago, the reboot of the venerable Mortal Kombat was considered too bloodthirsty for the Australian consumer and subsequently banned from sales.
But times change, and Australia now has a shiny new sensible R18+ Classification for video games – and what better way to showcase a mature medium than to resurrect Mortal Kombat. So Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment Australia, has.
Available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition will be available at Australian retailers on 1st May, 2013, with both versions priced at $39.95. The Australian Classification Board has classified the title R18+ “High impact violence, blood and gore” under the recently introduced R18+ adult classification category for video games.
The 2011 release of Mortal Kombat reinvented classic 2D fighting mechanics, winning Fighting Game of the Year awards from The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences and Spike TV’s 2011 Video Game Awards, among others. In addition to adding new gameplay features including tag team and King of the Hill mode, the game also delivers a deeper story mode and nostalgic arcade battle online and offline.
