Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is Released

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is the seventh title in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series.

The PlayStation 2 version was released in stores on October 11, 2006 while the Xbox version was released on the October 16, with a Wii version released on May 29, 2007 in North America.

The game was not released on the Xbox in PAL territories. This game is the last Mortal Kombat for the sixth generation game consoles PlayStation 2 and Xbox, and the first for the seventh generation console on the Wii.

Unlike the last time they tried to complete a trilogy, Midway knew not to make any bold cuts to the roster. Instead, they decided to focus on character selection as the cornerstone of the third title of the third game in their new series. Mortal Kombat: Armageddon would be the culmination of nearly 15 years of history, bringing back nearly every character, for a roster of over 60 fighters, and closing a major chapter in the saga.
