The upcoming re-envisioning of Mortal Kombat won’t hit store shelves alone. Performance Designed Products (PDP) announced that the Tournament Edition of Mortal Kombat comes with a little extra sugar and spice in the form of a Mortal Kombat Fight Stick.

Tom Roberts, Chief Technical Officer, Performance Designed Products commented in the press release, saying…
“Mortal Kombat is one of the most recognizable video game franchises on the planet and has a huge audience of dedicated fans,”... “We’ve created the ultimate joystick for these fans and now we’re bringing them all together to find the top Mortal Kombat player in North America.”

But a snazzy fight stick isn’t all there is to it, folks. A national Mortal Kombat tournament is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 14th and 15th. The tournament features the game, of course…it’s not actually real-life mortal combat. That would prove to be a little messy.

Anyway, the grand prize is $20,000 for whoever can survive through the competition and come out the victor. You can check out the Official Website to pre-order the fight stick or scope out the awesome designs. Mortal Kombat is set release on the Xbox 360 and PS3 starting April 19th.
