The Mortal Kombat website is counting down to something....

Out of nowhere, the official website for Mortal Kombat 9, simply dubbed Mortal Kombat, has a countdown clock.  The countdown ends in twelve days, so I assume on October 10/11 (dependent upon your time zone) some new MK goodness will be revealed. But the obvious question is “What the hell is going to be announced?”

Who could this new Mortal Kombat mystery fighter be?

So far what we’ve seen of the upcoming Mortal Kombat game points to a very old-school yet modern retelling of the classic formula that made the old 2D games so much fun.  Besides being able to uppercut someone or rip their spine out, one thing that made the old MK games so much fun were the characters.  Developer NetherRealm Studios (they’ll forever be known as Midway Chicago in my heart) have pretty much given fans the characters that are required to make an awesome MK game like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage, Liu Kang and Princess Katana.

Yet another update on the Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Kollection

When it comes to rumors there are some which are obviously never going to happen, others that are a sure thing and then there are a few that are like mythological creatures.  It would be cool if such a thing existed, and perhaps in a far off time it did, but deep inside we know that it’s not real.

New Mortal Kombat trailer is filled with shadow kombat

The Mortal Kombat franchise may not be getting a complete reboot, but it is getting a welcomed quasi retro upgrade for the 9th installment in the franchise.  We’ve already gotten a look at the new 2D based combat the game offers which thankfully is chocked full of blood and gore.

An update on the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kompilation

Yesterday news broke that there was some sort of Mortal Kombat Arcade compilation in the works. Now this news was certainly greeted with excitement but there was still a few lingering questions, most of which concerned how the game would be updated.  After all the original MK games really couldn’t be given the standard HD upgrades that most classic games or even PS2 games have received.  But then why would WB Interactive release this MK compilation if it wasn’t filled with goodness?

A Mortal Kombat compilation could be coming to us soon

According to a recent listing made by UK retailer ShopTo, a Mortal Kombat Arcade compilation is set to appear on the PS3 this year.  With the next proper MK game set to release next Spring, an Arcade compilation would certainly be the best way to get everyone hyped up for MK9. Yes, we’re already on the 9th MK game.

New Mortal Kombat game announced by Warner Brothers [UPDATED WITH TRAILER]

With the Mortal Kombat hype high after the release of the MK film pitch video, Warner Brothers Interactive has announced the latest Mortal Kombat game.  Simply titled Mortal Kombat, the game promises to take gamers back the glory days of the franchise as the game will feature a “mature presentation.”  Best of all the new MK game will be a 2D fighter similar to Street Fighter IV and the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
