Default Mortal Kombat 2011 Discussion

Koming April 19th, 2011


Quote:
Mortal Kombat is koming home in April 2011. In just about four short months players will be able to master all new fatalities and combos, and on the PS3 take Kratos for a spin against their favorite Mortal Kombat fighters. Also launching alongside the the standard edition of the game are two special edition versions, the Kollector’s Edition and Tournament Edition.

The Kollector’s Edition will come packed with the game, a collectible art book, DLC for Mortal Kombat Klassic Costume Skins and avatar costumes, along with Sub-Zero and Scorpion figurines. The Tournament Edition will come with the game, DLC, and a fight stick. The Tournament Edition will be limited to 20,000 copies in North America.

The game, Kollector’s Edition, and Tournament Edition should be available at most retailers. There are, however, some retailer-specific pre-order bonuses. Those who pre-order at GameStop will get the original Scorpion Fatality and the Klassic Scorpion Playable Character Skin. Best Buy pre-orders come with the original Sub-Zero Fatality and the Klassic Sub-Zero Playable Character Skin. Amazon pre-orders then get the original Reptile Fatality and the Klassic Reptile Playable Character Skin.

Can't wait for this game. There will be a 9 part web series released from the director who did that badass MK short leading up to, or shortly after the release of the game. Should be interesting. For those who missed that short, here's a link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cs3ROFNxa5M

It was between this and MvC3 for me.

Mortal Kombat definitely looks like it's heading in the right direction and it looks amazing. But with it's past couple results, I have way more faith in Capcom to deliver on the gameplay.

I still might get this sometime but definitely not an insta-buy.

This game will be nothing like the past couple Mortal Kombat games. More funding for this one under Warner Brothers ownership and back to everything people loved about Mortal Kombat 1, 2, and 3. It's a safe buy if you loved the older MK's.

I thought they said MK was dead and they'd be starting it up again with all new characters and such?

That was the plan before Midway went broke. That idea you're talking about got thrown out and they ended up making Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe, which wasn't exactly what the creative team wanted. Midway hoped to hit big with the help of DC characters like Batman, Superman, and The Joker...obviously their plan failed. That's happens when you make a bad game.

When Warner Bros. ultimately bought Midway's assets, they decided to reboot the franchise instead of scraping all characters. In my opinion, the route they're going with this game just seems perfect. The roster is awesome right now, and there's still some characters unannounced and promised DLC.

Here's a video of one of Liu Kang's fatalities. The video quality sucks, but oh well. Not the best fatality I've seen for this game, but still pretty cool.

The focus of the game is supposedly the multiplayer, so hopefully it's good. I heard some talk about being able to give someone "Respect points" in this game, which sounds like an interesting idea for a fighting game multiplayer.

A new character is said to be revealed next Thursday(March 3rd) on Game Trailer TV. That's on Spike for those who don't know. Not sure how offiicial that news is, can't remember where I read it yesterday.

Also, Australia has banned Mortal Kombat. Finally there's controversy involved with MK again, looks like they're on the right track. This really sucks for Aussie MK fans, but there's always ways for them to get the game anyway.

Quote:
In a move that will surprise nobody, Australia's Classification Board has ruled to ban Mortal Kombat, judging that its Fatality moves are too gruesome to qualify for the country's highest age rating, MA 15+.

"We are extremely disappointed that Mortal Kombat, one of the world’s oldest and most successful video games franchises, will not be available to mature Australian gamers," said Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "WBIE would not market mature content where it is not appropriate for the audience. We understand that not all content is for every audience, but there is an audience for mature gaming content and it would make more sense to have the R18+ classification in Australia.

"The Board also revealed three of the choicest Fatalities. Check them out below, but be warned of spoilers (obviously).

•Kung Lao throws his metal hat into the ground and it spins like a buzz saw. He grabs his prone opponent by the ankles and drags their body through the saw, explicitly slicing them vertically in half. Copious bloodspray is noted. Kung Lao then holds up both halves of the corpse as blood pours out.
•Quan Chi explicitly rips his opponent’s leg off, accompanied by copious bloodspray. As they lie on the groins, he explicitly beats them with the severed leg for a prolonged period of time.
•Baraka explicitly lodges a blade (attached to his wrist) in an opponent’s stomach and hoists them above his head. He spins them round and explicitly decapitates and dismembers them, accompanied by copious bloodspray.

Australia is currently debating the implementation of an 18+ rating, but obviously that won't happen in time to save Mortal Kombat.

Australia's highest rating for games is MA 15+? That's really pathetic.

Yeah sucks that they refused classification but eh just add it to the list Hopefully they get their shit together and start allowing a higher rating for games, seems like it's only a matter of time now.

Btw the explanation on that article you linked was funny, the way they were portraying those fatalities in a serious way
