Maximum Letdown: Gi Joe vs Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat (Action Figure Line)

This isn’t an actual game per se (although if you’re reading this Capcom, don’t let me stop you from making it), but rather it sums up one of the first North American attempts to make action figures based on Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. These figures made use of Gi-Joe molds. In fact, the original series of Street Fighter action figures were advertised as being part of Gi-Joe, with M. Bison and his Shadowloo grandmasters being part of Cobra.

SDCC 2011: Mortal Kombat Legacy Panel, DLC and final episode

ENI posted about this video. It features the final episode of the Mortal Kombat Legacy web series. It is not wholly clear if the series will continue past this point. The video begins with series Director Kevin Tancharoen making a few comments on the series. After his comments it cuts to the episode in full featuring Sektor and Cyrax, followed by some applause. Unfortunately, thats all. At the end of the panel, Mortal Kombat series creator, Ed Boon announced that the new DLC for the latest game in the franchise would be Freddy Krueger. You can see Freddy’s gameplay trailer after the break. He will be available to play on August 9th.

Famicom Dojo Podcast: Video Game Movies

Can a movie based on a video game ever be any good? If their Rotten Tomatoes scores are to be believed, these films are never critical darlings. Some find fans in niche places, but many are just… you know… BAD. Vinnk and SeanOrange plumb their memories of video game movies to find out if either of them belong to the “so-SO-bad-but-I-still-love-it-even-though-geez-it-sucks” club!

Mortal Kombat 9 Sells Over a Million Copies

It didn’t take long for the new Mortal Kombat game to reach the potential that NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. had been aiming for.

According to April sales reports listed on, the newest MK game sold over 900,000 copies, and crushed competition from Portal 2 and several other games released in the same month. Couple this with Ed Boon’s tweet that sales of the Kollector’s Edition and Tournament Edition actually put overall sales totals at over 1 million, and you’ve got a complete Fatality of records for only being out less than a month. Kongratulations!

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection Is 3 Games For $10

With the current revamp of Mortal Kombat surpassing all expectations of sales and quality, it was only a matter of time before the original ‘trilogy’ was re-released.

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, as revealed by Warner Bros today, is going to be a single $10 download in Xbox Live or PSN that will include the original Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Previously, Midway released UMK3 on XBox Live and MKII on PSN, but with that publisher out of business both games have long since been removed from the storefront.

The games are said to be the original arcade versions, enhanced with online play, leaderboards, and achievements/trophies. Graphics are not expected to be revamped, only upscaled to HD.

Rumors of the collection surfaced a few months ago, originally pegging the collected games at $39.99 on a Playstation 3 exclusive disc. While you won’t have another disc for your shelf, its hard to complain about getting the collection at a quarter of the price of the rumors!

Full press release follows.

Lost Classics: Mortal Kombat Trilogy (PS1, Saturn, N64, PC)

Mortal Kombat Trilogy is a home console exclusive version of Mortal Kombat 3, designed for the Playstation and Nintendo 64, with Sega Saturn and PC versions being made available a year later and being ports of the Playstation version (meanwhile, the Genesis and SNES got crappy ports of Ultimate MK3 while the Saturn got a ‘just okay’ version of UMK3). It’s intention was to basically close out the current storyarc, as Ed Boon and company was beginning work on Mortal Kombat 4. It does so in a pretty big way, as Raiden and Johnny Cage (among others) were added to the cast so that players could play as every character who was ever in a Mortal Kombat game. Many of the characters have new moves that were never before seen in any previous MK, such as Baraka’s spinning blades and Kung Lao’s dive. There was a new character, Chameleon (on the PS1) or Khameleon (if you played on N64). This character could randomly switch between any of the palette-swapped ninjas (male for PS1 and female for N64) and adopt their movesets. There are also several battlegrounds from MK2 thrown in. The PS1 version of the game has a few select levels from MK1.
