Mortal Kombat Gets R18+ Rating in Australia

GameSpot is reporting that NetherRealm Studios' Mortal Kombat has finally received a ratings classification in Australia. Two years ago the game was refused classification in the region twice due to its graphic and bloody contents, but thanks to the new R18+ adult rating classification in the region games like Mortal Kombat won't be (hopefully) banned for sale going forward.

Gamers in Australia that want to experience the game can get it via the Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Komplete Edition includes all the previously released downloadable content like playable characters Scarlet, Kenshii, Rain, and Freddy Krueger.

Mortal Kombat is the first game to be refused classification and be resubmitted under the new ratings classification. The game is being distributed by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment in Australia. WBIE has not commented on whether it plans to bring the PS Vita version of the game to the region…
