Finally a date and first look at the cover art for the bloodiest and most controversial fighting game franchise ever, Mortal Kombat, is here, and it is showcasing a classic match-up for the ages!

Launching on April 19th, 2011, and developed by NetherRealm Studios, Mortal Kombat is available for pre-order now on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The game will be available to consumers in three editions: Standard Edition, Kollector’s Edition, and Tournament Edition.

Details of the three different editions of Mortal Kombat are as follows:

• The Standard Edition featuring the award-winning Mortal Kombat game.

• The Kollector’s Edition featuring the award-winning Mortal Kombat game, Sub-Zero and Scorpion figurines, a collectible art book, downloadable content that includes an exclusive Mortal Kombat Klassic costume skin and avatar costumes.

• The Tournament Edition featuring the award-winning Mortal Kombat game, a portable fight stick, and downloadable content that includes an exclusive Mortal Kombat Klassic costume skin and avatar costumes. The number of tournament editions is very limited with only 20,000 copies available in North America.

Players will be able to pre-order any of the above at North American retailers as of today. Specific pre-order programs include:

Mortal Kombat will feature Kratos as a playable character, as well as be in Stereoscopic 3-D exclusively in the PS3 version. The brutal warrior from the acclaimed God of War franchise will have his own customized move set, fatality, and fighting arena, available to all original purchasers when Mortal Kombat hits stores.

The newest chapter of the iconic fighting franchise marks a triumphant return to the series’ mature presentation and a reinvention of its classic 2-D fighting mechanic. In addition, Mortal Kombat introduces a number of new game-play features including tag team and a deeper story mode. Players can choose from an extensive lineup of the game’s renowned warriors and challenge their friends in traditional 1 vs. 1 matches or take on several new game modes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Well, it’s settled. I will now buy my first gaming console since the last one I owned which was a……(drumroll please)….. Sega Genesis I had in the mid-nineties.

    Now my dilema……which one. PS3 or XBox360. Guess the one I choose will also serve as my Blu-Ray player,which I have also yet to purchase.

      That would be a PS3 as the x-box has yet to adopt a blu ray drive.

      I have a PS3 which is mostly used for blu ray movies and in my experience it’s damn good at it being faster than a lot of the dedicated machines on the market.

      • GJW

        I was leaning in the PS3 direction. The fact that XBox doesn’t serve as a Blu-Ray is the closer. I think you also answered what would have been my next question and that would have been “Is the Blu-Ray in the PS3 just as good as a stand-alone Blu-Ray device”. And it looks as though the answer is yes. Any other opinions on the PS3 would be appreciated and thanks Vanvance.
