This week the Gamestop 2010 Manager's Meeting is in happening in San Antonio, Texas. The first day of the event was today and was mostly a day full of demos, including a Mortal Kombat (2011)
Fatality Montage by MK Producer Hector Sanchez
. Tomorrow the show will open for hands-on play of many games at the event, including the new Mortal Kombat. As we mentioned earlier in the month, Warner Bros. has created some custom Mortal Kombat cabinet kiosks
for the event. One of our many kontributors at the event passed along some photos of the massive stage area along with the new cabinets. Along with the stage is an area where you can put your head thru a hole for a photo as either Mileena performing a fatality
or Johnny Cage's torso being held up by Sub-Zero
. Pretty funny.
We are hoping that these cabinets may eventually roll out to Gamestop Stores nationwide, or be just be used at other upcoming gaming events like this weekend's PAX Prime
in Seattle. Either way they look very neat, and may become collectors items if they ever fall into the public's hands.
Also this stage will be host to a giant Mortal Kombat tournament tomorrow from 6-9pm CST
. There seems to be various raffles and prizes being given away as well like t-shirts, headbands, etc. Hopefully some lucky winners get to take the cabinets home as well! We will have a few friends at the show tomorrow and hope to be posting their detailed hands-on impressions of the game for everyone tomorrow.
