*Help* Mortal Kombat So Real It Hurts Ad
10/18/2017 08:42 PM EST
You guys remember that ad where kano and raiden are grabbing people from the arcade and it says MK SO REAL IT HURTS? I want to find it and frame it. It came in magazines i guess? But does anyone know what issue of what magazine? so i can track one down on ebay and cut it out?

THANKS!

I’ve looked around a bit and can’t really find that information. The game released in October ‘92(as I’m sure you’re aware). My advice would be to look around for magazines from fall of that year. Contact the seller and see if they’d be willing to confirm if the ad is in the issue they’re selling before you buy.

You work with what you got...not what you hope for.

I know what you're talking about!



I believe this was not for consumer magazines at all, but a flier sent to arcade operators.

For the most in-depth, in-detail, Mortal Kombat lore analysis vids, there's only one source:
