Mortal Kombat

The dawn of the latest Mortal Kombat fighting game is upon us, M-rated as it was meant to be. Full-on fatalities and all-new bone-crushing X-ray views finally deliver the Mortal Kombat fans have been thirsting for. GameStop is hosting midnight launch events, with a few select locations hosting developer meet and greets. Mortal Kombat will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in a standard edition ($59.99), Kollector’s Edition ($99.99) and Tournament Edition ($149.99). Looks like the Tournament Edition (with PDP’s arcade stick) will be the toughest to find. Check below for midnight launch event details and a few last minute pre-order deals on Mortal Kombat.

GameStop midnight launch:
GameStop stores are hosting midnight launch events on Monday night, April 18th. Over 3,300 GameStop stores will be open for the midnight release, starting at 10pm. Pre-order in advance of the release for the original Scorpion character skin and the button combinations for his fatality.

Details on what to expect from GameStop:
Finish Him! Most GameStop stores will reopen at 10 p.m. local time April 18 to host launch-night activities such as a Mortal Kombat first-to-play, Mortal Kombat raffle and tournament to countdown to midnight.

In addition, four GameStop locations (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City) will host a team of Mortal Kombat developers for a meet and greet and autograph session. These locations will also give away a life-size Scorpion statue and copies of the game.”
