The Mortal Kombat drama here in Australia continues.

James Kozanecki over at Gamespot has spoken to a spokesperson from the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service, who has confirmed that Mortal Kombat has been added to its list of prohibited items and that gamers who import could be subject to a fine of up to three times the cost of the game.

“Customs and Border Protection works closely with Attorney General’s Department to identify imported games that are banned in Australia,” claimed the spokesperson. “This includes games purchased over the internet from foreign websites…

“Any copies of the games detected at the border, including via international mail, will be seized.”
