Mortal Kombat finally hits Australia: May 1st

Australians, get ready. Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition is indeed heading Down Under, with Warner Bros today confirming the game will hit Australian shelves from May 1st, for both Xbox 360 and PS3.

The game, recently rated R18+ for High impact violence, blood and gore, is perhaps the highest-profile game to benefit from Australia’s recently-introduced adults-only rating scheme.

It’s been a long time coming, with Australia famously all-but banning the 2011 reboot of the classic fighting franchise (twice). Since then, Mortal Kombat has picked up a stack of awards (including Fighting Game of the Year from the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences), and been the lucky recipient of a stack of post-release DLC.

Now, the game is not only packed with gameplay features like King of the Hill, a comprehensive story-mode and a nostalgic arcade battle style, but it also includes 15 Klassic Skins, three Klassic Fatalities, and – wait for it – Freddy Krueger as an optional character.

Delightfully, Warner Bros have given us the low down on this one’s low price, too: Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition will be in Aussie stores for just AU$40. Bargain.
