Mortal Kombat is a 2011 fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It is the ninth main installment in the Mortal Kombat series and a reboot of the franchise. An expanded version, Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition, was released in 2012.
Although the plot begins during the events of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, the plot is a retcon to the earliest period in the series, being the events of the first three games. The storyline involves the divine protector of Earth, Raiden, attempting to change the aftermath of the events of Armageddon by contacting his past self as he faces defeat at the hands of the evil emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn. While having characters and levels rendered in 3D, the gameplay distances itself from the fully 3D graphics one seen in the last four games, bearing a closer resemblance to that of the 2D era of the series, using a camera that is perpendicular to the two-dimensional playing field.
Upon release, Mortal Kombat received very positive reviews and won several awards for fighting game of the year. It was also a commercial success, selling more than two million copies in the first month alone. Due to its extremely violent content, the game was banned in Australia due to a lack of an appropriate rating category, and South Korea, and it has been reportedly indexed in Germany; the Australian ban was later lifted due to the introduction of an R18 classification and the game was released with many other R rated games in May 2014. Mortal Kombat was followed by the sequel Mortal Kombat X in 2015.
