Signifying a huge victory for adult videogame consumers in Australia, Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition has been classified with the new R18+ stamp by the Australian Classification Board.

The original release of Mortal Kombat's 2011 reboot, had seen the game refused classification under the previous guidelines, which only went up as MA15+ for computer game content. The Komplete Edition is said to contain all of the comedic exaggerated gratuity of the original, with the addition of the various downloadable content expansions.

The ACB's rating overview, cites violence as the only "high impact" element, with "moderate" themes, and language, and only "mild impact" sex and nudity (presumably owed to some of the more scantily-clad characters).

If enough people buy this that theres actually a decent amount of games to be found online, I might have to grab it again. Never really got to play online at all with the version I imported :(

Very good.

In practice the R18+ rating is behaving as I expected it would now.

Seems like all that talk of the same standards but with a different letter might have just been to placate the ACL and their type. If that is the case, well played pollies!

Wow, budget price too, I may as well just buy it again cos I never ended up getting the DLC (was living at my brother's place at the time so I was just playing it on his XBox with his copy of the DLC). I think all the DLC characters add up to like $25 or so anyway, so this is a pretty good deal.

Will I be able to play my UK version online here in Australia then?

I dunno if the multiplayer has any sort of region checking on it or not. They've said the Komplete version will be compatible online with the original version, but nothing about whether it'll be compatible with copies from other regions.

Ed Boon pretty much killed off any idea of a PC port for MK9 via Twitter some time ago.. :(
