Next 'Mortal Kombat' Back to its Roots With Sick Fatalities

by Rainier on June 19, 2009 @ 2:20 p.m. PDT

The newest chapter of the fight franchise marks a return to the series' mature presentation and a reinvention of its classic 2D fighting mechanic. Driven by an all-new graphics engine, the Fatality is back, presented in more gory detail than ever before, as well as a number of new gameplay features and a deep story mode.
While 'Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe' was not exactly a bad game, many fans were miffed over the fact that the franchise's trademark fatalities were severely toned down to fit with the DC license. However, the game sold rather well, and while it was already revealed quite a while ago that a new MK title is in development, its future is somewhat uncertain because of Midway's state of affairs. Nonetheless, creator Ed Boon revealed that work on Mortal Kombat 9 is proceeding and that a recent motion capture session promises to bring the series back to its M-rated roots with "sick" fatalities.
