It wasn't a surprise, as the recent promotional videos from the game had a M Rating shown before them, but Mortal Kombat (2011) has finally officially received a M for Mature rating by the ESRB. The rating description included below doesn't reveal anything new, other than the game may contain an F-bomb or during game play. We're personally betting that takes place when Fatalities are occurring and not story mode.

This is a fighting game in which players engage in one-on-one battles against characters from the fantasy-based Mortal Kombat universe. Players compete in a series of combative rounds in order to advance to different matches throughout the game. Players use swords, guns, chains, spikes, and supernatural attacks (e.g., fire, ice, lightning) to defeat a cast of human-like characters. After an opponent is defeated at the end of a match, players have the option to perform finishing moves called 'Fatalities.' Many of these finishing moves depict over-the-top instances of violence: impalement, bone-crushing body snaps, execution-style gunshots to the head; large blood-splatter effects occur during these sequences, staining characters' bodies and the ground. Several of these exaggerated finishing moves depict characters getting dismembered, ripped or sliced in half, stabbed, set on fire, or set to explode. During the course of the game, female characters sometimes wear revealing outfits that expose large amounts of cleavage; one female fighter is depicted partially nude, covered by a costume of thin cloth strips. Language such as 'f**k' occasionally appears in the dialogue.


Sounds good to us, only 37 more days until we get our hands on Mortal Kombat (2011), so don't forget to pre-order and secure your bonus outfits before it's too late!

"Language such as 'f**k' occasionally appears in the dialogue." lol.

Haha, I love the fact that MK was one of the games that actually contributed to the creation of the ESRB and their finding news ways to get a rise out of them. Talk about nostalgia.

LOL, omg I cant wait to see the F-Bomb being dropped in Story Mode. Without revealing any spoilers, can people who read the story mode tell us who exactly says it?

I'm surprised it got an M rating.

An F-bomb in story mode, really? Sub-Zero: You killed my brother! I will avenge his death! Scorpion: Dude, **** you, he killed me first.

I havent read the entire file myself Taj (i dont want to spoil the story) but i ran a search for the word "f***" and it's other versions but nothing came up! So either they re-wrote the script or the info from the demo really *is* outdated

So I guess the rumors of [spoiler=300th prize :P] Mileena's flesh pit costume having her completely naked are false. It sounds like they are describing her spaghetti strap outfit from I think deception. Shame, I thought the prize would be SORT of worth it, but not so much now.[/spoiler]

I just checked the spoiler stuff, and there are no F-bombs in the story mode script. I may be during fatalities that it's talking about.

I can only imagine Scorpion and his occasional "Get the F**k Over Here"

Sorry but f-bombs in an MK game = stupid.

I wouldnt call it stupid because it actually fits some characters. Unneeded, yes, because MK can certainly do without it, they have been for almost 20 years now. If they swear during fights, then I would classify it as stupid. Hopefully its just story mode cutscenes that contains it.

It would fit Kano or Jax, I feel. Unless it's used exclusively in something like Scorpion's fatality. (Get the f*** over here!)

Johnny Cage uses the D word in the demo "Beep I'm good!"

Sounds fun!

I am very surprised that only one other person pointed out that [spoiler=End Game Secret]it sounds like the ESRB inadvertently revealed details of the secret Flesh Pit costume![/spoiler]

LOL! Just picturing this exchange. Sub-Zero sounds all noble, then Scorpion casually fires back.

there is no way the kharachters will be cussing freely or even when they are getting beat up. they will probably shout **** or shit when they get their LEGS RIPPED OFF OF THEIR BODY! which makes total sense

I guess when they say "one female fighter is depicted partially nude, covered by a costume of thin cloth strips," they're referring to Mileena's flesh pit costume. It is unlikely that they NRS hid it from the ESRB, because you can get in big trouble for hiding content from the ESRB. I think that Mileena uses her hair to cover her boob's, and wears a loincloth. But that's just my speculation.
