Midway has released on its website, a 15 second commerical for TV along with a PDF checklist of the coffins in the Krypt.
Also, GameStop stores across the country began receiving the Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance Official Strategy Guide from Brady Games. You can view a preview of Scorpion's 4 page section here. If you don't want to shell out the cash, TRMK will be featuring our own online strategy guide for all 3 systems in the near future.
Best Buy and Toys "R" Us advertised this Sunday that Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance will be in stores on Wednesday November 20th, two days ahead of Fatality Friday. However, Circuit City shows in their inventory system that MK:DA will be shipped to stores on the 19th, Tuesday.
On the video game-specific retailers front, GameStop and Electronics Boutique lists MK:DA as shipping to retail stores tomorrow, the 18th.
Retail sources have stated that they have not received any communication from Midway to strictly follow the advertised release date of Fatality Friday November 22nd; therefore, many retail stores will sell copies of MK:DA as soon as they receive them.
We have started a message board thread for everyone to communicate and collaborate on what stores and where MK:DA is available. As always, make sure that you call ahead before you go to the store to make sure that it is indeed available. If you are successful in obtaining a copy, let us know.
Most GameStop and Electronics Boutiques stores have stated that their regional warehouses have received their shipments of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. Depending upon regional distribution policies, many stores will indeed have MK:DA available today for pickup if you had preordered your copy in advance, with some stores receiving extras for walk-up sales.
Call your local video game specific store now and ask if they have Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and then post a message in our Release Watch thread.
Several reports now confirm that select GameStop stores across the nation have received their shipments and are notifying people who have pre-ordered a copy. If you had pre-ordered your copy of MK: Deadly Alliance at a GameStop store, call your store immediately. Select regions that have early evening second deliveries had their copies distributed today and are in the hands of gamers as we speak. Calls made to several Electronic Boutiques stores nationwide reveal that their stores expect their shipments during their normal afternoon shipments.
For those who have passed on the strategy guide, we will be unveiling our own strategy guide for all 3 systems tomorrow night. Until then, post any new findings on the message board and we will confirm it ourselves and add it to our own guide.
