    Mortal Kombat Truck Tour Koming To City Near You

    The official Mortal Kombat Facebook page just posted a new event to their page called the Mortal Kombat Truck Tour. A giant Mortal Kombat Truck, pictured below, will be traveling cross country over the next two months for fans wanting to check out the new Mortal Kombat (2011) before release.

    There isn't much information right now but there are dates running up to the game's release date all across the United States.

    Los Angeles, CA (3/3-3/5)

    ‎(3/3 -3/4) Best Buy #109 @ 11301 W. Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90064

    ‎(3/5) Best Buy #1198 @ 2375 N. Tustin St. Orange, CA 92865

    Austin, TX (3/11 - 3/12)
    Dallas, TX (3/19 - 3/20)
    San Francisco, CA (3/25 - 3/27)
    Minneapolis, MN (4/8 - 4/10)
    Chicago, IL (4/16 - 4/19)
    The event page says more details are coming closer to release, so stay tuned for more information! We expect this to me similar to the old Mortal Kombat 4 Road Tour and hope to have more information soon.

    Updated 10:55pm CST With Los Angeles locations above, appears they'll be hitting up various Best Buy locations.

    Updated 3/1 10am CST: Added pictures of the Mortal Kombat Truck above.

    Updated 3/1 1:30pm CST: We've added a new TRMK Forum Section dedicated to the Mortal Kombat Truck Tour. Come discuss meet ups with your fellow fans as well as speculation about what we'll see on the tour. Head on over to the New Forum Section to begin discussing now!

    Unless you live on the east coast...

    Edit: I shouldn't complain PAX East is only like an hour and a half away from me.

    Re: Mortal Kombat Truck Tour Koming To City Near You

    Kinda annoyed they aren't coming anywhere that's less than 8 hours from me. Not that I expect them to hit all the states of course, but it'd be nice if they at least stopped in a bordering state of mine. Oklahoma, Kansas, South Dakota, Colorado, Missouri, or Iowa would have all been possibilities. The closest to me is Chicago, which is 8 hours away, and it's only 3 days before the game comes out. Yeah, not worth it.

    With that said, it's awesome that they are doing this, very cool. I don't think this is the only announcement we are getting though, as I still have my money on a demo for PSN and XBL. The week has just begun...

    LA baby! Who else is going? They might actually have a demo for those who show up. Like a code that lets you download via PSN or xbox live. Same with PAX. Just a thought, what do you guys think?

    Holy shit, I just realized it's THIS Thursday for me!!!!!

    Re: Mortal Kombat Truck Tour Koming To City Near You

    Great idea for publicity, but I wish they were going somewhere by NYC or Philly so I could go. The timing is tight so it doesn't look like they will add more locations. I think a demo would have been a better idea to get it into more possible buyer's hands.

    Good luck to whoever's going. I couldn't imagine the mob scene and waiting time to play at one of these events.

    I didn't think there was ANYTHING within 8 hours of Omaha.

    This is a neat idea, but 7 stops sucks. Was really hoping to get to play it before I bought it.

    Lets hope they hit the East coast more beyond PAX, would be surprising to see it skip that completely unless there was just no time.

    Actually there's quite a few bigger cities near Omaha, and Omaha itself wouldn't have been a bad choice. Omaha is quite a large city, and it's in the center of the U.S...so it would be closer for more peeps to travel. Turns out 8 hours was a bit exaggerated. Chicago is 7 1/2 hours away. Minneapolis is 6 hours away. Sioux City, IA and Kansas City, MO/KS would have been big cities that wouldn't have been bad choices either. Seems like the middle and upper western states are getting the shaft. I'd be willing to drive the 6 hours for Minneapolis, but it's not really necessary given that the game comes out 2 weeks after it. Had it been one of the first 2 stops I would have considered it.

    It's not really that big of a deal though, if there is a demo released on XBL and PSN, everyone will get to play. Regardless, we're only a mere 7 weeks away. Not a lot of time imo.

    That would be sweet.

    I hope they DO have an MK 9 demo out soon, on PSN.

    Oh my God!! I just happen to be going to San Francisco the same weekend for a Royksopp concert! I'm so there on the 26th and 27th! Who wants to meet me, so I can kick your asses?! Regardless of who wins, we can walk to the nearest pub, and I'll buy you a beer!

    March 25th-28th is going to be crammed full with so much awesome! Yay!

    Edit: @Nasty_Freak : I challenge you ^_~
