Mortal Kombat & Unreal Engine. First Details!
Executing moves will be done differently, no more 'spelling the alphabet' and having to hit 8 buttons in order to pull of a move, or even a fatality. The 3 fighting styles per fighter are also getting removed, to further distance the game from the rest of the series. Ed Boon promises something completely different, and "unbelievably unexpected". Lastly, Boon says the game will have a very dark and gritty aesthetic style, and cites Gears of War as the inspiration for the decision. At the moment, the predicted release date is for late 2008, so this game's still got a lot of development time left.
