Gameplay video from PAX 2010 showing Scorpion and Sub-Zero battling it out,which ends with a fatality.
Graphics are good but I absolutely hate the lame forward, forward dash. Just give us a run button!
So you want it to be less of a fighting game than it already is? Nice.
What the hell are you talking about? MK3/UMK3/Trilogy had a run button, but that didn't make it "less of a fighting game," it made it a competitive fighting game.
"MK3/UMK3/Trilogy had a run button, but that didn't make it "less of a fighting game," it made it a competitive fighting game." As well as a broken fighting game.
Fuck the run button. I've grown tired of the runjab.
This isn't Street Fighter/Tekken. This is MK going "back to its roots".
Dash > Run button. And without either, we'd have MK2 game play all over again, with nothing but turtle matches.
I liked the old MK fighting system better than these recent releases.
Keep in mind that all the game play from PAX was done by amateurs. Wait until the pros get their hands on it, then you'll see some shit. And jumping around like an idiot won't save you.
If you hit up youtube there are a few vids - looks great when someone who knows what they're doing plays!

@Kurt Russell: Bubbles for you for having the best account name on N4G. @Brutallyhonest: And I'm sure that's just the tip of the iceberg. Even if it is a bit slower than UMK3, it's still light years ahead of the 3D MK games and it looks plenty fast to me. People bitch too much.
I like the look of the pace myself, it shouldn't need tons of speed to make it competitive. I am looking forward to looking up fatalities etc on the internet like I did 10 years ago :D Any mention on Babalities,Friendships etc?
A minute and 27 seconds in. "God I hate the xbox D-pad." Haha. MS got on that but they over-priced the improved controller. They should be selling it for 20 bucks.
There is a fight pad for around that price.
It's looking a lot better than I expected. Looks like a pretty decent fighting game, although the actual gameplay does look a little slow. Fatality was amazing
I kinda wish that Netherealm studios would bring back brutality in MK9, but I doubt they would do it.
Never was a fan of MK games, but damn this looks good...
So that metter at the botton lets you do special moves I'm guessing. I like the graphics and gameplay. Game is looking real nice.
I wanna scream GET OVER HERE from the top of my lungs once again!!! MORTAL KOMBAAAAAAAAAAT!!! xD
0:38 What the hell?
Lol...just a slight collision detection error. haha classic MK
Woohoo looks fun! I want to play this game now! Classic MK FTW!
I cant wait to play this awesome game 2011 will be the year for fighting games
Looks pretty sick. If you look at the end of round 2 you can see how Sub Zero 'froze' himself, and waited till Scorpion did his teleport attack move right into the freeze trap, then Sub Zero finished him off.
I remember in the early 90s, i was in an arcade, fighting this very battle. I got Sub-Zero down half a health bar and then BAM!, i was shoved off the game by a big security gorilla. 'Stop messing around with that machine and get out' he said. I ran away crying (i was only a child) and swore my revenge. I took to the mountains to train in martial arts. Karate, Judo, Tae Kwan Do, Ching Chong Woo, you name it, i mastered it. The aura of strength that came from my body was shattering windows and breaking puppies' necks as i walked towards my destiny. 'Hey you' i cried after i ate the front door, 'time to die'. I woke up six months ago in intensive care and i am really looking forward to finishing my fight with Sub-Zero.
That's interesting, let me know how that goes.
Haha, bubbles for you for making me laugh.
thats crazzy story i like it an wish it waz long,wat abot dat big g unit ar u gona finish i need to know.
So does Scorpion still say "Get over here" when you pull them toward you, i couldn't really hear the gameplay.
The look on that guys face after he got destroyed by the fatality is priceless. Can't wait to see my friends faces just like that ^^ This game would be so much better online if it used the ps eye / vision cam during fatalities.
I can't wait to play this In 3D on PS3!! ^_^ MK For Life!!
April 2011 isnt coming fast enough for me !!!
how many fatalities has one character
Each character will have 2 Fatalities !!!
i expect god of war 3 graphics quality because it has a fixed cameralike gow
