Playboy Previews Mortal Kombat with UFC

04/30/2011 :: Posted at 03:45 AM by Mick-Lucifer
Jo Garcia and Brittney Palmer Duke it Out in Mortal Kombat for Playboy!

Since its relaunch under Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment, the Mortal Kombat license has once again become a cross-media phenomenon. Having been co-branded with the likes of Gamestop [1], God of War [2], Teenage Riot Records [3], NASCAR [4], and others, it makes perfect sense that the final frontier would be one of the biggest American pop cultural icons of all-time, Playboy.

2008 Cyber Girl of the Year, Jo Garcia, and UFC Octagon Girl, Brittney Palmer, have turned their skills as critics and gaming enthusiasts to an intense study and dissection of the new Mortal Kombat mechanics, in this 2:24 featurette. Plunging themselves into the roles of Kitana and Mileena, they have taken full advantage of UFC resources to demonstrate a radical new dimension in gaming preparation and intensity.

The models' conclusions mirror that of the recent Tournament Strategy video posted by Peformance Design Products, who recommend Kitana as one of the best tournament fighters in the game.

This isn't the first time Playboy and Mortal Kombat have been closely linked. In 2004, Mileena appeared in a provocative render not dissimilar from her eventual 2011 redesign, for an article showcasing gamings sexiest vixens.

Not to be outdone by Playboy; Warner Brothers have had their own models posing as Kitana, Mileena, and Sonya, for a string of public appearances, including the recent European Tournament. The trio were featured suiting up in a series of promotional videos, earlier in the month.

Here at Mortal Kombat Online we pride ourselves on our jounalistic integrity and dedication to keep fans abreast of all matters Mortal Kombat. It is with sincerest regrets that we bring you this very important Playboy preview over a week after its original publication, on April 19. Thanks to forum user, queve for sharing on the forums, in the interim.

Mortal Kombat was officially released April 19 (US), April 21 (EU). For more hardhitting stories about the game and other projects, stay tuned to Mortal Kombat Online (@MK_Online).
