If you thought Mortal Kombat was all about the same ol' same ol', you thought wrong.
While it's true that NetherRealm is seeking to cater to the ardent long-time fans who wish to see a resurrection of all that made MK great, the team has implemented something quite new- the Challenge Tower. They talk about it in the video shown here; this mode features no less than 300 missions, all of which are designed to test your knowledge of the character(s) and the game's mechanics.
So yeah, you can see one instance where you can only kick during an encounter (because the arms of both combatants were torn off), and another where you have to toss a grenade into a moving bucket. We're not so sure about those "test your luck" missions, though…I'd hate to be fighting upside down with a floor of fire.
