Mortal Kombat demo announced


A demo for NetherRealm's punch-tastic new Mortal Kombat is in the works, publisher Warner Bros. announced today. It'll be released for PlayStation Plus subscribers on March 8 then made available to all PS3 owners on March 15. An Xbox 360 demo will follow at the nebulous time known only as "later."

The downloadable demo will contain pugilists Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Mileena and Johnny Cage, who'll get to slap each other around the Living Forest and Pit levels. You'll also be able to pummel a chum, as the demo supports two-player.

Mortal Kombat is scheduled to launch for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 19.
