NetherRealm Studios and WB Games are hitting up Comic-Con International this week July 21th - 24th in San Diego, California with a purpose. Along with the finale of Mortal Kombat: Legacy webisode series, NetherRealm Studios is organizing a Mortal Kombat (2011) tournament at GameStop in the Westfield Horton Plaza at 503 Horton Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101, within walking distance to the San Diego Convention Center. The event will take place at 7pm on Thursday, July 21st and will feature exclusive Comic-Con prizing, the latest DLC characters Rain, Kenshi, Skarlet and the final unannounced mystery character. Also, several developers from NetherRealm Studios will be in attendance.



Update: We've been passed along more details for WB Games' event tomorrow at Comic-Con.

Mortal Kombat has been a massive hit this year, and the hits keep on coming: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is inviting fans to get their Mortal Kombat fix at San Diego ComicCon 2011!

First, the acclaimed Mortal Kombat Legacy series will lead off with a signing at the Warner Bros. Booth (#4545). Fans can come and get autographs and pictures with stars from the series as well as Mortal Kombat co-creator and NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon on Thursday, July 21 from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. This will be followed by a “Warner Premiere Digital Series” panel at the Hilton Bayfront – Indigo Room (Thursday, July 21 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.) where the ninth and final installment of Mortal Kombat Legacy will be world-premiered. During the panel, Ed Boon will make a guest appearance to reveal the identity of the unannounced and much speculated fourth DLC character for Mortal Kombat!

Finally, Mortal Kombat fans will get an exclusive first chance to play with this new warrior before he is available on XBLA or PSN. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is inviting gamers to come to the GameStop near the convention center on Thursday, July 21 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. to get some hands-on time with the latest kombatant alongside Ed Boon and participate in a tournament for some great prizes.

Anyone have an idea how long the tournament will last? I get off work Thursday at 7 and it takes me 10 minutes to get to downtown from my house, then parking time I'd prolly get there a little before 7:30. It should last more than an hour right? I just wanna watch lol I would play if I didn't have work :/

Bring back khameleon as the 4th downloadable character cause she needs to be in the game as more than just a cameo

Yeah, well too bad that the final DLC character's silhouette is of a man. Tough break, Tanya.
July 20th, 2011 8:57 AM CST - TheKombatant
Since it is Comic-Con it could be a character from the mk comic book... but who?! :S
July 20th, 2011 1:59 PM CST - dodheimsgard
Boon denied on twitter Frost and avoid answering about Tanya so it's Tanya. And more cool stuff is to be revealed tomorrow : 'RT @psballer8I Is there any other info being revealed @ comicon 4 mk9 besides character any new future dlc projects 4 the game Noobde: yes.'

That doesn't mean anything. The shadow is just a placeholder, it's not the actual outline of the character. Duh. It will likely be male, because the odds are in that favour. (more males to pick from) But perhaps they will want to balance out the DLC by having two males and two females. Tanya definitely still has a good chance.
