Some updates on Mortal Kombat 9


I know you've all been patiently waiting to once again discover that Mortal Kombat is a terribly weak fighter, that basically devolves into button mashing and knowing finishing moves. Every time a new game in the series launches there seems to be this strange hope that it will turn into the great fighter that it never was. However, despite not being a great fighter, it's still hella fun to tear people into bloody pulps with ridiculous moves as Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe reminded us (sans blood).

So we'll stick to the rose tinted memories of MK and bring you this update of information on Mortal Kombat 9 that TRMK has put together. Through a variety of sources they have figured out that we will most likely be seeing a holiday release of Mortal Kombat 9, as almost every place has a Dec. 25 release date for the game. As we know this is the standard place holder date for a holiday release.

They've also confirmed some characters through casting calls for motion capture and voice actors. It looks like some people from MK vs. DC will be reprising their roles and this has confirmed that Sonya and Kitana are definitely in and Kano is a strong maybe.

Finally, we will most likely be hearing something about the game next month as one of the actors resume's stated that her next job for WB will be revealed in April. Only one months until we can start pretending that Mortal Kombat will become a great fighter this time around.
