Mortal Kombat Tournament Hits Las Vegas May 15

Presumably not too many of you are sitting here watching Fernando Torres do his best impression of a footballer, but I’ll leave that alone until tomorrow. In the meantime, and having nothing at all to do with Chelsea Football Club, the Champions League, or Mr. Torres, there’s word of a big Mortal Kombat tournament that will take place at Bally’s in Las Vegas on May 15 and May 16. There’s $21,000 in prizes at stake, so pay attention if you still know how to pull off Sub Zero’s fatalities without checking GameFaqs.

The tournament has been put together by Performance Designed Products, the same folks behind the Mortal Kombat Fightstick that I mentioned a few weeks ago.

The tournament uses the Xbox 360 version of the game, and it’s open to anyone over the age of 18. And unless you plan on sleeping on the Strip, Bally’s has special rate for tournament attendees.
