Mortal Kombat Demo To Get Over To PlayStation Network

If you own a PlayStation 3, you’ll get a chance to try out a demo of NetherRealm Studios’ reboot of Mortal Kombat before the game is released. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you’ll get access to the demo even sooner.


A post on Sony’s PlayStation blog mentions that the Mortal Kombat demo is scheduled to go up on the PlayStation Network on March 15th. Meanwhile, PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to try it out a week earlier, on March 8th. PlayStation Plus subscribers in Europe will be able to try the demo out on March 9th, and regular Euro PSN members a week later.


The demo will include four playable characters: Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage and Mileena, along with their Fatalities and X-Ray Attacks. You’ll be able to fight in two environments, The Pit and The Living Forest. The demo will include single player and one-on-one versus modes, as well as stereoscopic 3D support.

    That sounds like a meaty demo (for a fighting game, that is).

    Let’s see what all the fuss is about… As soon as it hits the peasants’ PS Store.

    It includes my favorite character(Sub Zero.) No need to pick up the full version if the game is as lackluster as the rest of the 3d MK games.

    I will probably download the demo, but pass on the full version. I already have Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and I’m going to be getting Dissidia duodecim when it comes out, so I’ll be pretty good as far as fighting games go for a while

  • Seeing how much effort they put into the Challenge Tower on another site, it makes me sad that other fighting games have such anemic challenge modes. Especially Soul Calibur 4, which was inexcusable considering that they pretty much invented that type of mode in fighting games. First day I bought the original Soul Calibur, I put about 10 hours into it because of their mode with all the crazy variables while fighting.

    Now, challenge mode is mostly just “here’s a combo. Do it.”

    I’m buying this on the basis of that mode (and the presence of Kratos) alone, even if I wish they’d switch block to pressing back, instead of a button, like every other serious fighting game on earth.

    I personally can’t wait for this. I wish I was playing it right now!

    sounds awesome :D

    btw what happened to the Mortal Kombat HD Kollections?

    though it seems it’s still coming out this year

    I’m so broken about what to choose about getting the game on launch or waiting for a price drop. Every single MK game last generation (and even the generation before that) I bought on launch because I was super hyped about the games, only to see their prices drop extremely quickly because they were jokes in terms of gameplay.

    I’m liking what I see about the new game, but what if it falls into the exact same situation as the past games?
