Mortal Kombat is returning from its sojurn into PG-13 territory, once again rooted in the Hard-R, Fatality-laden bloodfest that we all know and love. We recently had the chance to take a look at the game's progress, as well as its handful of new features, and came away with our hands stained red. Call us impressed!
"To assuage your fears, characters such as Johnny Cage, Kung Lao, Reptile, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sektor, Sonja, Jax and others return for this considerably darker and more mature go-around. The graphical presentation is really your first indicator that this Mortal Kombat title is taking itself seriously – dim, dank with the polished sheen of blood-covered stone; character models that are neither cartoonish nor simplistic, but rather imposing and quasi-demonic. These are the fiercest we’ve seen these characters in quiet some time and even from the short demo we witnessed, they feel back to their old – albeit newer – selves."
Step into the bone-crushing arena and suffer the wrath of our Mortal Kombat Preview.
