Mortal Kombat Finally Receives An R18+ Classification In Australia

It was arguably the most high profile game to ever be refused classification in Australia but now Mortal Kombat, released in 2011, has finally been classified in Australia after the original game failed twice, and the handheld version was also deemed to violent for Australians. Now, post the introduction of an R18+ rating in Australia, Mortal Kombat has finally been classified at R18+.

This means that, at some point, you will be able to legally purchase Mortal Kombat in Australia. It’s great news, and feels like a real exclamation point on the R18+ issue.

In addition, the Queensland Parliament, at time of writing, is debating the R18+ issue. So hopefully all Australians will be able to enjoy the game.

Thanks Player Attack!
