I hope they announce MK8 for arcades as well. Nothing beats the old MK2 and MK3 arcade battles.

As for PC, only MK4 and MKTrilogy have come to PC before as far as I know (And maybe the terrible spin-offs like Special Forces) but it would be awesome to have a great fighting game on PC after decades.

I remember MK4 had two players on one keyboard!

MK_Red4072d ago

True. And because of system/key/whatever buffer, it was almost impossible to win for one of player.

Midway must be really desperate if they're releasing it on PC. Then again, they ARE in serious financial trouble. I guess they figured the PC demographic could help with sales.

They need to go back to old school fighting. I hate the slow fighting and the combo system. MK2 was the best.

BloodySinner4072d ago

MK2 was slow and had no combo system.

If the keep the name MK8 it will be a -5 IMO.
But I got high hopes for this to bee nothing but bloodier then MK:A

BloodySinner4072d ago

And nothing crappier than MK:A either.

From what I read it sounds like this game is being developed on PS3 first and then ported to 360 and PC.
