With the game officially available worldwide, Performance Design Products (PDP) have continued to reach out to the burgeoning Mortal Kombat community with another video spotlight on the virtues of their official Tournament Edition Gamestick, and the revamped gameplay mechanics of Mortal Kombat.

Gerry Block, Sebastian Jennings, and Leviticus Davis discuss speculative trends, playing live as Kitana and Noob Saibot, whilst sharing observations about fundamental tactics of the new game.

Their keys to victory include the basic fighting game food groups of projectiles, screen control, and combos. MK is evidently a very projectile heavy fighter, with teleport maneuvers playing a vital role in counter strategy and screen control. Among the expected favourite characters in the community are Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Kabal, and Kitana.

Xbox 360 gamers can now purchase the PDP fighstick individually via online purchase [full details]. Boasting nineties authentic materials, the PDP fighstick emphasises the uniquely American qualities that have typified Mortal Kombat arcade gaming, as described in a previous community feature.

May 14-15 marks the first ever US National Tournament hosted by PDP, where gamers will meet at the Las Vegas Ballys Hotel and Casino to compete for a $21,000 prize pool!
