2011’s Mortal Kombat was one heck of a game and easily a contender for many Game of the Year awards. But for many people in this fair nation, that wasn’t the case – thanks to it being way too violent for the Australian Classification Board, not allowing it a classification and forced many people to potentially break the law to grab a copy. But now that we have an R18+ rating, publisher Warner Bros has tried once again to get the game classified…to which they succeeded! Come sometime this year, Mortal Kombat will be finally released on Australian shelves.
The news comes as two entries for the game (for both the PS3 and 360) appeared on the Classification Board’s database (found via Player Attack), which note that the the version coming is the Komplete Edition, which comes with all the downloadable characters and costume packs that were released for the game, including classic costumes for the ninjas, plus Freddy Krueger as a playable character. Sadly, there’s no word on the Playstation Vita version, which came with even more bonus content.
Good news for those who never got a chance to play the game and didn’t want to run the risk of potential confiscation. Also, real great to see the third time was the luckiest for Warner Bros. It’s great news all round, so check it out when it hits…eventually!
