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.

No EU? /jk looks like no demo for me ..

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.

Austin texas yess!!!! I am there!!! Woooo!!!!

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!!!!!

Let me stay at your house, drive your car (even if it isn't August) and shave your beard, Pat, I am almost certainly there!

wooooo road trip to austin yo guys need more info let me know thanx

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.

Yeah. How the hell is Minneapolis getting it when Atlanta isn't? This is a neat idea, but 7 stops sucks. Was really hoping to get to play it before I bought it.
February 28th, 2011 11:35 PM CST - Patrick McCarron
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.
March 1st, 2011 12:56 AM CST - Nasty_Freak
Oh gosh. I hope I'll be able to go in the one at San Francisco!
March 1st, 2011 2:13 AM CST - Kryplixx
Holy shit. I live 20 mins outside Minneapolis! Minnesota represent!

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 ^_~

If this is one of the big announcements, "something they never did before", I call bullshit because they did the truck tour back in the MK4 days! However, I'm glad many of you guys will have the chance to try the game, also this pretty much ends any speculation about a demo coming soon...
March 1st, 2011 5:38 AM CST - Ricochetmatt
Yeah, those cities aren't anywhere near me. I demand compensation.

I would be pretty shocked myself, especially given the fact that they're skipping New York. But it looks like its pretty set in stone since they are ending the tour in chicago, the home base of NRS, on launch day (probably a huge event planned too). Wonder if they'll be giving anything special out at the tour aside from the playable build?

Over here in Florida BUT I do think it would be cool if they released a demo before release date. Either way April is almost here.
March 1st, 2011 10:12 AM CST - Patrick McCarron
I'm sure there are more announcements to come. Updated the OP with pictures of the truck.
March 1st, 2011 10:55 AM CST - tejasclone
Pretty stoked about the stop in Austin. Should be able to easily spot that truck in the parking lot. Condolences to our friends elsewhere in the US and abroad who won't be able to partake. Be sad not, fellas. April 19 is still quite close.

For sure bro. I'm taking my iPod touch so I plan to record and take pictures of everything they have to show. I'm going all 3 days so I should have a lot of footage. Me and 4 other friends are going so you'll probably see me playing the demo while my friend records If you guys want my Youtube channel link so you can check back on it Thursday-Saturday it's; http://www.youtube.com/user/DCPvids (Nothing much on it right now, just a couple Black Ops vidoes, me and my friend messing around on MKII, and Scorpion's Widget Fatality.)

Wow, I am one lucky mother****er. Dallas(north) and Austin(south) are two hours away from me. I am going to ask my brother if he kan take me.
