Even the most faithful are a little antsy until a game reaches Gold status; the "no turning back" plateau that says, "yep, it's definitely coming."
Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have announced that Mortal Kombat has officially gone gold for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It will launch on April 19 in North America and April 21 in the UK; feel free to check our news archives for all relevant information. This reboot marks a "triumphant return to the series' mature presentation and a reinvention of its classic 2D fighting mechanic." Featuring an all-new graphics engine, the Fatality and character-specific stages have returned, along with new features like tag team, a deep Story mode, and stereoscopic 3D (exclusive to the PS3). Then there's the Challenge Tower, which is 300 steps long and will tax your abilities to the limit! MK fans have been waiting for such a game; it pays homage to the good ol' days while being a definite upgrade at the same time.
Come on; April isn't exactly jammed with games…this one should be near the top of your priority list.
