Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealm have been dancing around the issue of a firm launch date for the game for months. Sick and tired of the charade they have given in to our demands and issued a statement regarding release. April 19th is the day Mortal Kombat will touch down and the battle with your mind to learn two fighting game’s controls in such a short time period will begin(MvC3).
Also revealed with the release date is the box art for the game. The art features two iconic Mortal Kombat combatants in Sub-Zero and Scorpion. Frankly I’m surprised Scorpion’s not hold up someone’s entrails instead of throwing his cheap spear chain thing. Also on the cover, Sub-Zero readying his patented freeze ball of cheapness. If anything, the game is giving you a nice hint on who to use in the upcoming fighter…Get Over HERE!!
Update: Sorry to anyone that came with the listing as Jan. it was a typo, or perhaps it was a wish. Either way it was wrong. The official release month is April 2011.
