New fighting game Mortal Kombat X will be released around the world starting 14th April, Warner has announced. That's a Tuesday and that's definitely the date for the UK, Warner PR confirmed.

The game's due out on five platforms: PC, PS4 and PS3, and Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Goro, the iconic four-armed brute, has become a pre-order bonus character (and presumably paid DLC at a later point?). I'm sure that'll go down well. There's no word on which UK retailers you'll have to pre-order at to enable the deal.

I wonder if the Goro suit from the film will be in the Collector's Edition of the game? How much would that cost - 120lbs? Ha! See! A joke!
