    Mortal Kombat 9--in 2D! Release date 19 Apr 2011

    Some important videos to get hyped!

    IGN Preview of MK9

    MK9 Trailer at E3

    Gameplay discussion

    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:

    "TOASTY"
    PONG
    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:

    1. Scorpian
    2. Kung Lao
    3. Sub Zero
    4. Reptile
    5. Shao Khan (yes, I loved this character!!!!)
    6. Nightwolf
    7. Johnny Cage
    8. Raiden
    9. Mileena
    10. Baraka
    11. Sektor
    12. Kitana
    13. Cyrax
    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.

    Breaking news:

    Kratos from God of War is confirmed for the game. He will have his own fatalities but only be available in versus mode and not story mode.

    Bad news:
    It's a PS3 exclusive.

    This reminds me of what Soul Calibur 4 did with Yoda (Xbox) and Darth Vader (PS3) being exclusive to certain systems.

    The biggest question here is, if PS3 is pulling Kratos, who is Microsoft going to pull in for their version?

    Thoughts?

    My two cents: it would have to be a huge Microsoft-exclusive character. Can you say Master Chief?

    That would be rather awesome. Plasma Stick Fatality, anyone?

    Could be cool if they put an Elite in. Energy Sword fatalities. Not sure what other "iconic" xbox characters would be on the same level as Kratos. I guess they could always have Bill Gates in it. Fatality = Squashes you under a pile of money.

    Interesting, but will MS allow their iconic badass to be ripped to shreds as a regular gameplay element?

    That's kind of what I'm thinking but its all in good fun. Kind of like Spawn, Link, Yoda and Darth Vadar in the Soulcalibur games. Outside of Master Chief, who else is badass enough for a Microsoft exclusive?

    I got some videos on the environments in Mortal Kombat. Usually, environments don't mean jack in fighting games but fans of the MK series know better because of environment fatalities. Enjoy!

    I have to admit that I am pretty impressed with how it looks. I might just have to check it out.

    Kollector's Edition - $100:
    - Classic Scorpion character skin and original fatality
    - Sub-Zero and Scorpian figurines that are big enough to be bookends
    - Art of Mortal Kombat with 110-pages or original and concept sketches and all that other artsy stuff
    - Retro-Ninja costume
    -Exclusive in-game costume
    - Avatar clothing stuff
    http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/Prod...p&cross=200987

    Tournament Edition - $150:
    - Mortal Kombat fightstick: I do know this is made with "american" parts as opposed "japanese" parts of the Madcatz sticks. It also has a bat-top stick instead of the lollipop design of Madcatz. I think its made out of wood with memory foam on the bottom for lap playing.
    - Retro-Ninja costume
