Mortal Kombat Coming In April, PS3 Version Gets Kratos



Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat reboot has a launch window, and that’s April 2011. Oh, and the PlayStation 3 version comes with Kratos as a playable fighter.


No exclusive content for the Xbox 360 version of Mortal Kombat has been announced yet, but we might see some further down the line. At launch, the game will come in three editions: Standard, Kollector’s, and Tournament, with the latter two including different bonuses.


Interestingly, this marks the fifth time Kratos has made an appearance in a game outside of God of War. Believe it or not, he’s in Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds on the PS3 as a downloadable golfer. Kratos is also a playable fighter in SoulCalibur: Destiny on the PSP. LittleBigPlanet has a Sackboy based on Kratos, and ModNation Racers has a Kratos racer, too.


In addition to Kratos, the PS3 version of the game will include stereoscopic 3D support.
