Mortal Kombat is set to take Europe by storm with an official tournament set to commence next week! Smaller tournaments held in Italy, Belgium, and Holland in the lead-up to the final!

Taking place at the UK’s largest consumer electronics show, The Gadget Show, the final competition will be held in front of thousands of gamers at Mortal Kombat’s spectacular ‘Fight Arena’ stage in the Over 18 Gaming Zone. The ‘Fight Arena’ stage is set to be a huge draw at the event, allowing visitors to experience the bone-crushing, blood-spilling action on a massive HD projection screen.

Winners in Belgium and Holland will receive custom made gaming sticks from Shadaloo Xtreme Fightsticks [pictured below]!
