E3 2010: Mortal Kombat Returns! See the New Trailer!

The granddaddy of the violent video game is back and thankfully as bloody as ever. That’s right, kids! Time to wipe away that PG-13 taste left in your mouth by Mortal Kombat vs. The DC Universe!

From the Press Release
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Mortal Kombat, the most brutal installment of the landmark fighting game to date for release on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft in 2011. Mortal Kombat is being developed by the newly re-named NetherRealm Studios, led by Mortal Kombat creator and creative director Ed Boon.

The newest chapter of the iconic fight franchise marks a triumphant return to the series’ mature presentation and a reinvention of its classic 2D fighting mechanic. Driven by an all new graphics engine, the fan favorite Fatality is back and presented in more gory detail than ever before. In addition, Mortal Kombat introduces a number of new game-play features including tag team and the deepest story mode of any fighting game. Players can choose from an extensive lineup of the game’s iconic warriors and challenge their friends in traditional 1 vs. 1 matches, or take on several new game modes.

“We are bringing the Mortal Kombat franchise back to gamers with the talented NetherRealm Studios team creating the game fans long to play,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Re-establishing the brand with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Mortal Kombat innovates on past games while staying true to the brand’s legendary characters and fighting style.”

“We can’t wait for players to get their hands on Mortal Kombat,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “This game really is a response to what players have been demanding: mature presentation, reinvented 2D fighting mechanic and the best, most gruesome fatalities ever!”

Mortal Kombat introduces a number of new game modes as well as the most extensive online experience ever seen in a fighting game. Up to 4 players can battle “tag-team”- 2 players can team up in the new “Co-op Arcade Mode” or compete against another team online.

    I hate to admit it, but I enjoyed the MK vs. DC game. I got to play Green Lantern and that put a smile on my face.

    Looks good to me. Can’t really see any vast improvements on gameplay, graphics or features in the trailer, but I’ll most likely be buying it on launch day. Good to see the brutality back.

    Holy shit. With the bad ass short film and this, it’s a good time to be an MK fan.

      Tell me you have a 360 and are online. When this comes out I’ll be very happy to beat the piss out of you all over Outworld. 😉

        You silly Billy, the only games I play are SF2 Turbo on my SNES I bought from Ebay, I don’t play stuff like this. I’m not a gamer geek, no. I have enough things to be geeky about that waste my time. Ahem–comic books.

        But if you have anything else you want to battle in, let me know.
