Today the organisation confirmed it had banned the newest version of the game being sold in Australia, citing excessive violence such as "bloodspray" and "limb dismemberment". In a Mortal Kombat game? Who would have thought it! The ban comes because Australia does not have an R18+ classification for video games, despite extensive lobbying efforts by the video game industry and consumers"
