Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Australia has announced that Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition, recently classified R18+ for “High impact violence, blood and gore” under the newly introduced adults-only classification category for video games, will be available in Australian stores on May 1.
The game will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 and both versions will be priced at AUD$39.95.
Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition includes the original game itself plus all previously released downloadable content.
Mortal Kombat was originally refused classification in February 2011 before the classification laws were revised.
While many Aussie MK fans may have already ‘acquired’ the game, this marks the first time it is legally on sale. As an Aussie gamer myself, I’ll borrow a quote from Tychus Findlay of Starcraft fame and simply say : Hell, it’s about time!
