Select Cineplex Odeon Theatres across Canada will be hosting tournaments celebrating the release of MK, on the night of April 18th! The system is XBox 360. Admission is five bucks, and there will be some MK themed 'short films' shown. The tourneys take place in Montreal, Toronto, Newmarket, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, and Coquitlam.

A list of the seven event locations and their theatres can be found here.

Here's the Montreal event page.

Thats amazing.

But on the night of release?? Really?

bad decision. Should have been the 17th. I'm going to line up for a midnight release. So how can I be at two tournaments at once?

I'm actually hosting my own MK tournament at a local movie theatre in St. Catharines. But i need enough entrants first.

I came, I saw, I kicked butt, and placed 2nd out of forty entrants. Wahoo!

It's not saying too too much as maybe only five or so of them really knew what they were doing - one wicked Sonya player is a member of these very boards, and I'm lucky I didn't face him - but I got stomped all over in the final round. Shouldn't have picked Cage, but people were getting sick of all the Scorpion and Sub-Zeroes getting tossed around, lol. The winner's Scorpion was a zoning champ, and I made some stupid mistakes.

The majority of my victories came from Scorpion, but I won a match with Baraka, and one with (Casselman, you'll like this!) Sektor - whose fatality I used to loud cheers. I also tried Kabal and Smoke, and lost those rounds.

The winner netted himself a TE, and the four of us under him got ourselves a free copy of the KE each. In addition, I and some others also won ourselves a Blu-Ray copy of the first movie through a raffle, and the emcee (who was awesome) was throwing out T-shirts like they were candy - I got ahold of like five!

It was a marvelous experience. Pictures will be posted on the official MK Facebook soon!
