Mortal Kombat: Deception Now Shipping

Midway Games Inc. (NYSE:MWY), a leading software industry publisher and developer, announced today that Mortal Kombat(R): Deception(TM), the latest entry in the company's best-selling Mortal Kombat franchise, has shipped for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox(R) video game system from Microsoft. The game will be backed by the most extensive marketing campaign in Midway's history. The multi-million dollar marketing support for Mortal Kombat: Deception includes television, cinema, print and online advertising, innovative point-of-purchase materials and specialized events. "Midway, along with the millions of MK fans around the globe, is extremely excited about the release of Mortal Kombat: Deception," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "The Deception team has worked diligently over the past two years to ensure that this MK title will be the best yet. Not only will it be the first ever 3D fighter to be playable online via both the PlayStation 2 and Xbox Live(TM), but the team has also succeeded in meeting a goal that some thought wasn't going to be possible...they made a fighting game that plays as responsive online as it does offline. To support these ambitious efforts and hefty accomplishments, we are backing Mortal Kombat: Deception with the most extensive marketing campaign in Midway's company history." Mortal Kombat: Deception pushes martial arts-style fighting and the Mortal Kombat franchise to new heights with an innovative fighting system, unparalleled depth and brutally intense action that will appeal to long-time Mortal Kombat fans as well as next-generation gamers. The game features lightning-fast, hand-to-hand and special weapons combat, secret and returning characters, new moves and combinations with death-dealing battles and all-new life-threatening environments. Building upon the successful formula of the 2002 Midway release, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance(TM) (on pace to eclipse 3 million units sold by year's end), Mortal Kombat: Deception is set to deliver the most ambitious fighting game to-date. Including four independent gameplay modes, multiple new fatalities per character, as well as being the first-ever 3D fighting game playable online both via PlayStation 2 broadband and Xbox Live(TM), Mortal Kombat: Deception has quickly become one of the most anticipated titles this 2004 holiday season.
