Cyborg on Cyborg Violence: KONFIRMED

NetherRealms Studios, formerly WB Games Chicago formerly Midway Chicago, kontinue to make me interested in Mortal Kombat again with the release of some new screen shots as well as a kouple kharacter announcements.  The new game is kalled Mortal Kombat, which should tell you that the kreators are aiming to take the series back to its gory roots. The two newest kombatants to join the roster are Cyrax and Kitana. They are joining an, already, impressive list of fighters including: Shao Kahn, Raiden, Johnny Cage, Sub-Zero, Nightwolf, Mileena, Kung Lao, Sektor, and Reptile.  This list is far from the final roster, so you kan still expect to see Scorpion and perhaps some new faces to join the old. After releasing 3D MK games since Mortal Kombat 4 and the toned down T-rated violence of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, Mortal Kombat is finally returning to glorious, gory 2D. The addition of a super meter and tag battles will bring new life to the series that will make it feel right at home next to Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3. As the game komes kloser to release more solid information about the new systems will be shared.

If you prefer you Mortal Kombat action non-polygonal then I have some exciting news for you too! ShopTo.net recently was the second online shop to have a listing for a Mortal Kombat Arcade Compilation (Kompilation?) for the PS3 and 360. According to rumors it will release before the end of the year at a budget price. It will include Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to feel the itch to start upper cutting some fools onto spikes.
