Mortal Kombat 2011

This afternoon some sad gaming news arrived, the latest edition in the long running, super-popular Mortal Kombat series will be banned in Australia. Kotaku are reporting that it received an RC, refused classification rating from the Australian Classification Board.

Once again Australians are suffering as a result of the lack of a R18+ classification for video games. Essentially if a game can’t be rated below MA15+, it can’t be sold in Australia. This long running battle to get an R18+ classification has lasted for years and although we’d love to see a resolution soon, it seems doubtful.

When one of the worlds oldest and most successful video game franchises cannot ship their latest product to Australians, there’s something glaringly wrong. Admittedly the game is uber-violent, but that’s the fun of it, particularly the creative fatality sequences.

As with every other title blocked for sale in Australia, the conversation turns to how to import copies from overseas. Ignoring a issue doesn’t make it go away ACB.

Check out what your missing in this Mortal Kombat 2011 trailer.
