Mortal Kombat

The next iteration of the venerable Mortal Kombat series was announced by Warner Brothers this morning and promises a return to brutal form for the game series. To be released on the PlayStation 3 and 360 in 2011, Mortal Kombat is being developed by the newly re-named NetherRealm Studios, led by Mortal Kombat creator and creative director Ed Boon.

Check out the trailer below:

For more details on the game , hit the jump to learn about fatalities and new game modes.

The Fatality is back and will be "presented in more gory detail than ever before." In addition, Mortal Kombat introduces a number of new game-play features including tag team and deep story mode. Players can choose from a lineup of the game’s iconic characters, and the usual 1 vs. 1 matches are back as well as several new game modes, including four-player  “tag-team” fights, and two-player team ups in the new “Co-op Arcade Mode." You'll be able to compete against another team online too.

“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!”

While it looks very impressive, a fighting game lives and dies on the precision of its controls and the delicate balance between characters, so we'll all have to wait a bit to see if the game lives up to the famous name of the series. I, for one, am very excited.
