    Lovely news if I don't say so myself, Lets just hope they add more serial killers, also if thats the real gameplay than I'm sold. This is only going to be the only game I'm going to buy, since I'm starting to dislike the 3D genre for some reason, but MK is an exception in that hand :lol:.

    Seriously MK9 was amazing. I shit on the game for so long until I played it and ate every goddamn word I said. It's really fun.

    Was the "ghetto" music after 00:30 necessary? Completely killed the mood.

    >using "ghetto" in quotation marks.

    Something smells vaguely racist. Plus the only good Mortal Kombat theme is Reptile's.

    For the record Mortal Kombat is the most "bro" or "western" fighting game so a rap song seems like a choice that would make sense.

    If i could like your comment a thousand times. I would. That type of music better not be in the game, it completely ruined what was a really good teaser for the game.

    Im curious how much of that footage was gameplay and how much was cutscene. There were parts of it that really did look like it was a movie but other parts that looked like gameplay. Pipped my interest tho for sure! I loved MK9!

    Yeah, well I find it an annoying (mostly) American trend to use rap for game trailers involving:
    - ancient Rome
    - renaissance
    - colonial period
    - american civil war period
    - space opera in the distant future
    - supposedly epic fighting scene involving two ninja-like characters in a forest

    That's stupid and distasteful to me. But I understand it caters to the teens/college/bro demographics, so, it is what it is.

    As for the word "ghetto", just used it for the lack of more specific understanding of music genres on my part.

    OH BABY

    Can't wait for this. I hope it goes back to what Deadly Alliance / Deception / Armageddon brought to the table and becomes a 3D fighter. Mortal Kombat 9 was pretty good, but I would prefer the 3D direction the game took, plus the story was pants-on-head retarded.

    Eh. Mortal Kombat games had consistently good soundtracks up until MK9 I think, it was just very boring and generic.

    i hope the kills aren't as drawn out as the previous version. i didn't like them, they are becoming too torture porn for my tastes. i prefer quick creative kills.

    who's to say he can't freeze the fractures/ligaments in his leg (temporary fix) so he could continue fighting? Besides, scorpion being frozen without catching frostbite isnt realistic either. MK as a whole bends the laws of common sense as it is.

    NEW INFO REALSE FOR PLATFORMS
    Coming to Ps3 and Xbox360
    Coming to "Nextgen" systems Ps4 and Xbox One Later than last gen and for PC
    And am I forgetting something..............Oh no news on the Wii U release date meaning it won't happen.

    My info, speculations, and inferances are not accurate as it might not realise on the previous gen.

    Still this looks amazing always been a fan of the first Arcade mk games and mk9 was really badass.

    Not really interested in Mortal Kombat but it's good to see it's getting a new game.
