Mortal Kombat kicks it old school in new PS Vita trailer

There's just something about playing fighting games on the go that's extremely exciting to me. Especially nowadays when handhelds have almost caught up to their console brothers in terms of capability, and games like Super S...

Review: Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition photo
Review: Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition
by Jonathan Holmes

Hey everybody! Fighting games are back! And you know what that means, right? Semi-sequel "updates" to fighting games are also back! BlazBlue, King of Fighters, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, and of course Street Fighter have all seen at least one retail-packaged upgrade since their respective launches (or relaunches), which have all had varying levels of critical and commercial success. 

Never one to be left out, Mortal Kombat has thrown its ultimate hat into the Super Arcade Edition ring, with a retail repackaging of the latest Mortal Kombat release, now infused with all the game DLC, plus digital copies of some Mortal Kombat-themed media. It's a very different kind of package than what Capcom has provided for Street Fighter and Marvel Vs. Capcom fans, but that's Mortal Kombat for you: always content to walk down its own path.

But is Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition a path worth paying $60 for?

For those who watched the earlier tease for Mortal Kombat on Vita which featured a live action Kitana, yes, there was more to watch. Not a whole hell of a lot more, mind you, but some. In this full version of the a...

Mortal Kombat X Street Fighter! (No, it's not real, guys)

Just in case anyone was thinking of flipping out, read the title one more time. Okay? Okay. The Mortal Kombat flash mob videos are apparently a series now. For the third entry, the stakes had to be raised even higher. Much l...

Mortal Kombat is Komplete on February 28

I got a huge kick out of the Mortal Kombat reboot last year. Aside from being a bloody way to show the world how much I suck at fighting games, the title's story mode is one of the coolest things I've played in the genr...

Preview: Mortal Kombat Vita has more ways to Finish Him
by Abel Girmay

The last half of this generation has been extremely kind to fighting games. Street Fighter IV returned the series to form, newcomers joined the fray with BlazBlue, and my personal favorite fighting franchise experienced a much needed rebirth with last year's Mortal Kombat.

The trend doesn't show any signs of stopping, and continues on the handhelds with Mortal Kombat for the Vita. This isn't a simple port, mind you. With all the costume and character DLC, as well as new outfits, modes, and Vita-specific controls, the only thing holding it back from being the definitive version is its gutted online play.
