Kratos Gets His Mortal Kombat On

God Of War protagonist, Kratos, makes his way to the recently rekindled Mortal Kombat franchise for what seems set to be the best crossover since William Shatner voiced the character “Kirky” in the last My Little Pony movie although we’re told that he asked that his name be witheld from the credits so good luck proving that one!

Getting back to MK… unfortunately, it transpires that Kratos is only available in the Playstation 3 release… which may just prompt a spending spree in GAME at the weekend! Enjoy the trailer, and have some info on the game while you’re at it…

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 favourite 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 line up 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 four players can battle “tag-team”- two players can team up in the new “Co-op Arcade Mode” or compete against another team online.

    Hmmph…PS3 exclusive. Although given that Kratos is a Sony character thats a fair one I guess. Thing is, I find it dfficult to get excited about a new MK game. I mean, it was never that great back in the day, and although I got some enjoyment from the 3d ones of the early 2000′s, I fail to see what is so exciting about a return to the old 2d style…

    Still, Kratos innit? Star of 2 of my all time favourite ever games (still not finished chains of olympus)
