MUMBAI: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Mortal Kombat, the installment of the landmark fighting game for release on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft in 2011.
Mortal Kombat is being developed by the newly re-named NetherRealm Studios, led by Mortal Kombat creator and creative director Ed Boon. 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 a lineup 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. 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,” said Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president Martin Tremblay.
“We can’t wait for players to get their hands on Mortal Kombat. 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,” said NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon.
