Some important videos to get hyped!
IGN Preview of MK9
MK9 Trailer at E3
Mortal Kombat is back and it's going to its MK1 and MK2 roots by featuring 3D models playing on a 2D plane (much like Street Fighter 4)!
The game looks beautiful and for anybody that cut their teeth on the first two Mortal Kombats, it brings you back to the days of grabbing the controller from your opponent when they tried to do a fatality on you.
Another cool feature is the addition of tag team play where not only can you battle 1v1 but also 2v2.
Also, it was hinted at in this game there are going to be lots of "secrets" to this game. For you old-school members that remember:
Reptile in MK1
Noob Saibot and Smoke and Jade in MK2
You know what I mean by secrets.
I think the biggest thing to take away from all the MK9 coverage is this is truely a game that centers around MK 1, 2 and 3. To most FG fans, these are the only MK games to exist. Chances are, if you had a favorite character from 1, 2 or 3, they will be in the game.
Unless your favorite characters are Stryker or Sheeva. Then you can just get the hell out of this thread! Twisted Evil
Let's see if I can get a tally of the roster list:
2. Kung Lao
3. Sub Zero
5. Shao Khan (yes, I loved this character!!!!)
7. Johnny Cage
14. Liu Kang(?)
A look at the character select screen reveals 26 slots including another slot for DLC characters.
More to come once I find out.
