Some Mortal Kombat Updates

Listed for an April 2011 release, Mortal Kombat looks like its gunning for Fighting Game of the Year honors (Take that Marvel vs Capcom 3 fans :lol: ). Within the past few weeks, characters have been revealed, as well as gameplay features. I’m sure you all have heard that Kratos will be part of the game, and how the whole crew will bring it back to its MK roots by incorporating the Klassik elements we’ve all loved. Things such as old costumes, arenas, signature moves… everything to induce nostalgia.

Here are some updates and videos:

Full character list:

Row 1: Scorpion, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sub-Zero

Mortal Kombat Tower Challenge

IGN just published this video featuring fresh additions to the new Mortal Kombat game. It’s a brand new game mode where you can play 300 different wacky challenges, including slots, zombie killing, upside down fights and many other crazy things. It reminds me of the Street Fighter “trash the car” level, but with many more options.

It’ll be a great deal of fun to all the fans and it promises a challenging and rewarding experience for the people that can get all the way to the top. I’m very excited about this game, MK is my favorite fighting franchise and all the new additions look pretty great.

How about you? What do you think?
