Mortal Kombat: Dead or Just Warming Up?

"Let’s not kid ourselves. Midway screwed the Mortal Kombat franchise the moment the fourth installment was released in 1997. Depth and character individuality were thrown out the window, and in a few short years the series had fallen behind Tekken and the new kid on the block, Soul Calibur. Midway dug itself into a hole, and though it tried to climb its way out with a little Deception and a lot of Armageddon, the publisher was not completely successful."

I'm not even really a MK fan, but the new one looks sick as fuck. They are just warming up.

MK2 is a classic, which I still play on the Genesis and on PS3/PSN. They are not warming up, there coming back if anything.

MK is coming back with a vengeance. After they saw how successful Capcom did when Street Fighter 4 returned to its roots, MK couldn't pass the opportunity to return to its own roots too.

The fighting game scene has exploded, thanks to these franchises.

It`s definitely not dead. I`m hype to start breaking bones and ripping heads again and in 3D, I might add.

I haven't played a Mortal Kombat game since the 90s.

Tekken is terrible. Can't even compare to any game in the MK series.

NateNater2749d ago

Tekken and MK are both fighting games but don't try to compare them. They're too different to compare.

Tekken 3 = Best Fighter Period

Krimmson2749d ago

Oh God, I needed a good laugh, thank you so much!

On a side note, Ed Boon, co-creator of the MK franchise, has stated that his favorite fighting game series of all time is in fact Tekken. Even more so than MK.

Just thought I'd drop that little tidbit for you guys.

The trailer looked fantastic. Mark this up in the column of fighting series returning to their former glory.
