Mortal Kombat Joins MLG Championships

02/02/2012 :: Posted at 10:50 PM by Mick-Lucifer
MK Breaks New Ground with Official Addition to Major League Gaming Lineup!

MK Joins MLG Winter Lineup!Mortal Kombat's conquest of the major gaming tournaments continues today as Major League Gaming announce the fighters admission into their upcoming Winter Championship lineup!

Revealed over Twitter with a message that sent ripples throughout the competitive scene; the inclusion is something of a coup for the series, which currently occupies the only slot offered to the fighting genre. Capcom's popular catalogue of tournament fighters is seen as a glaring omission, but MLG note the likely addition of another as yet unannounced fighting game. 2010 last marked the return of fighting games to MLG, with Tekken 6 and Super Smash Bros. Brawl represented in different categories. They did not return in 2011.

The MLG tournament is expected to offer one of the larger cash prize pools for a Mortal Kombat competition, and help galvanize the dedicated community forming around the award winning game. Prominent players, like MK World Champion PerfectLegend, were quick to show interest in the announcement [via twitter].

PerfectLegend Expresses His Appreciation in New Vlog. (February 6, 2012)

Update Feb. 10: Passes for the Major League Gaming Winter Championships are now becoming available. Running March 23-25, the event will be staged in Columbus, Ohio across the first three fatal fight days of the 2012 MLG Pro Circuit!

Spectator passes are currently on sale on the MLG Website, for $35. Mortal Kombat Competitor Passes will go on sale February 14, with a Gold Member discount price of $40, or standard $50. A perfect promise for for an MK bloody valentine!

The Winter Championships are to be held in the Greater Columbus Convention Center 400 N. High Street Columbus OH 43215. More details, including recommended hotel services, are available at
