Toys 'R' Us leaks Mortal Kombat DLC date

Smarting (or gloating) at the lack of 360-exclusive characters in Netherrealm's Mortal Kombat reboot? Itching to get to playing the previously glitch-only "Woman in Red," recently unveiled as newly-canonical roster addition Scarlet? Well, thanks to a leak buried within the latest flier for Toys 'R' Us, you can now rest easy in the knowledge that you won't have to wait long.

Above: The smoking gun. And beside it, some info about Mortal Kombat DLC

Heads will surely roll over the flier, which turned mailboxes and newspapers across America into unwitting delivery agents for the industry secret that Wednesday, May 4 was the date that the first MK DLC would go live. Because this is such closely-guarded insider info that its premature revelation will turn gaming as we know it on its head? Don't be daft, you'd have known it within a day or two anyway. But if there's any franchise that'd indulge in capital punishment for a bit of publicity, surely it's Mortal Kombat. We don't want you to call us prophets or industry soothsayers for this prediction. We only hope you'll call us one thing: wrong.

    Mortal Kombat is awesome so far! I just found a blog that's giving out the preorder DLC for all the costumes, and the new Kenshi character DLC! I just got my Reptile Klassic Kostume but I don't know if there's anymore keys left. If you want to check it out, here's the site:

    I KNOW who leaked it! It was Brett Elston! He whispered the information to someone in the Toys R' Us salt mines! I'm just joking : ) Brett will get the joke!

    Just got my copy from Amazon for $20 thanks to $20 credit for preordering Portal 2. Can't wait till it gets here

    as a 360 and a PS3 owner who didn't get Kratos because I got the 360 version I hope we get an exclusive character at some point via DLC even if it's paid DLC, i honestly don't care. I really like this game. And yes I know it probably won't happen. Can't wait for the DLC though. And for anyone who hasn't tried it yet, get together with your buds at a friends house and play verses on Yest Your Luck mode and watch the good times unfold lol, we had a blast

    I'm not pick up the new MK only becuase I'm too busy with MvC3 but it looks really cool through

    Theres a pretty good deal goin on this week at best buy, You can get MK for 20 bucks if you use the @gamer magazine coupon, plus you get the bluray movie. Awesomenesss.

    As a PS3 owner who spent $60 on the game, I can only say... I hope Sony gives me $20 worth of MK DLC... when PSN Store returns... at some point... if we're lucky.
