Mortal Kombat countdown appears on Midway's noob.com

A countdown bearing the Mortal Kombat logo has appeared on website noob.com, prompting widespread belief that an announcement on the popular fighting series will be issued later this month.
The countdown itself, currently at 17 days at the time of writing, ties in ideally with Midway’s forthcoming Gamer’s Day on April 17. It should also be noted that the website, noob.com, is registered to Mortal Kombat Co-Creator, Ed Boon, and owned by Midway.
Perhaps most conspicuous is the appearance of several animals; a rhinoceros, an aardvark, a gorilla, and an elephant, with cryptic numbers listed below. When translated, these numbers apparently read “free klose.”
With a next-generation Mortal Kombat due out later this year, it seems likely that Midway would be gearing up for an official unveiling at some point in the coming months.
We’ll have more on this development in the coming weeks.
