Mortal Kombat (2011)

Consoles: Playstation 3 | XBox 360

Release Date: March 2011

Mortal Kombat (working title) is an upcoming fighting game in the Mortal Kombat series. It is in development by NetherRealm Studios (formerly known as Midway Games) for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

The game was first hinted at by developer Ed Boon on January 2009, shortly after the release of the previous game in the franchise, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. In a November 2008 interview, Ed Boon stated that he believed Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe’s performance would reflect upon what features what would be put in “the next game”, presumably Mortal Kombat 9.

On June 18, 2009, Ed Boon confirmed in his Twitter page that they were performing motion capture for the game. He also revealed that the game will not have superheroes in it, thus ruling out an immediate follow-up to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

He also stated that they were going back to its bloody origins and they were aiming for a “Mature” rating, contrary to the “Teen” rating attained by the previous game. He even questioned “going too far” and showed concern about crossing the limit to “Adults Only” rating.

It has been said that online for Mortal Kombat will become a main priority, which GamePro editors called a “smart move”, and in January 2010 a screenshot of Ed Boon’s personal PSN ID was published, which suggested that online testing of Mortal Kombat was underway.

Dan Forden is expected to return as the music composer for the game.

The game was revealed on June 10, 2010, and is expected to release sometime in 2011. A trailer was released on that day, which showed the game returning to a 2D plane of fighting, with other new features including a tag team mode.
