Mortal Kombat 11 Charity Tournament Will Kombat Against Injustice This Weekend

Mortal Kombat 11 Charity Tournament Will Kombat Against Injustice This Weekend

Kombat Against Injustice.

This weekend, there's a special Mortal Kombat 11 tournament raising money in support of racial justice protests going on across the U.S. and around the world. Kombat Against Injustice is the name of the tournament, and it features some of the biggest names in the fighting game scene.

You can see the announcement of the tournament over on through Twitter, as well as a complete list of participants and brackets just below. You'll no doubt recognize Dominique "SonicFox" McLean in the first bracket on the left, one of the biggest, most successful, and outspoken fighting game players in the world.

The campaign that the money raised will be going towards is Campaign Zero. There's an extensive list of the issues that Campaign Zero promises to tackle over on their website, including police brutality, the Broken Windows policing, demilitarization, ending for-profit-policing, community representation, and many more issues. It's an impressive list of clearly outlined issues accompanied by proposed solutions to each problem, and Campaign Zero has rose to such prominence that even former President Barack Obama has voiced his support for the specific campaign in multiple instances.

Over the course of the week so far, companies like Nintendo of America, Capcom, and more have been voicing their support for the Black Lives Matter movement in America. Game industry events slated for both this and the following week, such as the big PlayStation 5 games reveal showcase, have been postponed to later dates in the wake of the mass protests against police brutality.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
