First Mortal Kombat tournament bloodying up Vegas this month

If you love last month's Mortal Kombat reboot, or just sort of like it, but are planning to go to Vegas for some other reason, then you ought to know that the first professional tournament is taking place at the Bally's Hotel in Las Vegas on the 14th and 15th of this month.

Street Fighter gets EVO, and now Mortal Kombat gets the "National Mortal Kombat 9 Tournament" (NMK9T?), hosted by Performance Designed Products, creator of the Mortal Kombat fighting stick. $21,000 in prizes are at stake, so if you think your kombat is mortal enough (haha...ha...), sign up at by this Monday, the 9th.

We'd totally go, but we're still recovering from our last trip to Vegas.

    not the first one actually, Power-Up 2011 already hosted a MK tournament April 29 to May 1, they even streamed it @Redeater I think they live stream all the EVO qualifier tournaments the next one is the Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament on May 27 and 28 and I'm pretty sure MK9 is gonna be there(if thats whats got you interested I mean)

    It would suck if they won't stream it. EVO last year was a blast to watch.

    Huh... so much for this game not being "tournament-worthy"... Fancy that ; )

    This tourney is going to be full of 3 kinds of spam; Raiden's teleport, Mileena's laser kitanas (which has no cool-down), and worst of all, Kratos' one button OP "combos."

    I kind of wish they would stream these events. I would actually watch them.
