Mortal Kombat heads to Wii

Nintendo's next-gen system to play host to final current-gen installment of violent fighter early next year.


From day one, Nintendo's strategy with the Wii has been to make games accessible to everyone. Apparently, "everyone" also includes bloodthirsty brawlers.

Next year, the seminal violent-fighting series Mortal Kombat is set to make its first appearance on a Nintendo system since 2004's Deception. A Midway representative has told GameSpot that Mortal Kombat: Armageddon will arrive on the Wii in the first quarter of 2007. The PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of the game are still slated for release later this year.

Midway has already announced its support for the Wii with adaptations for the feature films The Ant Bully and Happy Feet, but Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is the first confirmed Midway title to target an older audience. A Wii version of Rampage: Total Destruction from the publisher has also been rumored, but its existence has not yet been confirmed.
