April 10, 2007 - New PlayStation 3 games will be a scarce commodity this month, but the PlayStation Store is receiving some welcome retro support. This Thursday, April 12, Mortal Kombat II will be available for download from Sony's network.
Mortal Kombat II is the controversial arcade classic that got Joseph Lieberman's panties in a bunch back in the day. The usual suspects are all there: Sub-Zero, Raiden, even hidden characters Jade and Smoke. The game's selling points are the unique finishing moves each character can use to violently end their opponent.
Sony has added online multiplayer support and leaderboards so you can track who is finishing who. All of this will be available for the bargain price of $4.99.
