The Australian Classifications Board has come to an agreement on banning the new Mortal Kombat from being sold in Australia. They deemed it too violent to have their highest age restriction, which is MA 15+. The next installment of the series, simply called Mortal Kombat, is scheduled to be released April 19. And from the looks of it, I think gamers will not be disappointed. It wil be bringing the same brutal slaughter it has had since the first Mortal Kombat back in 1992.

All of your favorite characters, from Baraka to Sub Zero, will be a contender in this brutal, bloody battle. There will also be an extra character for those who use Playstation 3. Kratos, the character from God of War, will be a playable character. However, he is only available in Versus mode. And of course, to complete the Challenging Tower, you have to face either Goro, or the emporer of Outworld, Shao Kahn.

Will they have fatalities? If you look up Mortal Kombat in the dictionary, the definition simply says “FINISH HIM.” There will be 60 different fatalities for the game. The fun part will be to figure out the right button combination to achieve them. Although the Australian ACB will have a meeting to discuss a possibile change the mature ratings later this year, it will certainly not be in time for the release of Mortal Kombat.
