Mortal Kombat is up for sale

Old-school fighting IP could go soon

Word in this morning reveals that in the depths of their financial woes, publisher Midway have put the Mortal Kombat series up for sale.

New court documents related to Midway's troubles tell us that the publisher is after an "execution of an asset purchase agreement for the sale of Midway’s Mortal Kombat franchise assets."

According to NetDockets, nearly four million USD has been set aside as part of the selling of rights - Wheelman having already moved across town to Ubisoft.

Of course, this desperate maneuvering and selling of assets could well be Midway's death rattle, the firm desperately seeking to raise cash to appease creditors. We'll bring you more as we get it.
