New MK info from Brazilian event covers xbox 360 exclusives and online features


In a famous books and electronics store in Sao paulo, Mortal Kombat’s producer, Hector Sanchez, presented the game yesterday to a Brazilian audience and revealed some new information while confirming some rumors and leaks. Here is a rundown of the new info that was revealed (taken from forums):

• The online mode will be restricted to your area. E.g., if your playing from the west part of the USA, you’ll only be able to play against people from the same region. Sanchez explained that this decision was made in order to prevent lags during online matches.

• The Lady In Red? “She’ll be there”, says Sanchez. I wonder what he exactly meant. Cameo in a Stage, Cameo in the Challenge Tower or actually playable?

• Kratos will be heavily promoted soon, which is why nearly nothing was released about him at the moment.

• Xbox360 will have some kind of exclusive content, rather than an exclusive character, which will be announced soon.

• All those Bios and Endings are REAL, and Hector said that “it was an act of ‘bad character’ from those who made these leaks”.

• We’ll see human Sektor and Cyrax in action, as he stated that part of the Story mode will take place before the Lin Kuei automation, but it wasn’t clear if their human forms will be playable.

• He confirmed Cyber Sub-Zero, and said that he will have an unique set of moves and story. He said also that the team is not certain about his inclusion in future MK games.

•Sonya has her classic MK4 Leg Split Fatality! The combination will be [\/, \/, <, >, X] for the Xbox,

I am not sure how i feel about the leaks being all real, but i know i am very unhappy with Online play being region restricted. We have not see a region restricted game in ages, and this maybe the first fighting game to do it. It would have been more rational to have the region select as a filter, rather than it being mandatory. Hopefully NRS studios will listen to the fans and change this option.

Around The Web


  1. I am soooo pissed that Kitana dies now… shes my favorite mk maiden and if they bring her back as a zombie the next game I ll be even more pissed… But if they show how revive her from the dead with her orignal body back then I am fine wtih it.

  2. @ Blake
    Maybe the next Mortal Kombat will be another message from Raiden before MK1 and everyone who dies is back again… for a new Ultimate Mortal Kombat. Though I think this game will last for some years, it is expected they will support the game via DLC, and that offer more money than a total new game.
    wan’t to know what the extra for the 360 is!! Can’t wait till next month, think this will be huge and hope not as broken as MVC3.

  3. who made it Leak? the firm itself… who got the idea to put the demo online with all the locked info inside… ?
    Yeah, I could no more say thx for the people to unlocked the info for us..

  4. If you want lag-reduced gameplay, just call up the GGPO guys. Backbone Entertainment did for SSF2T HD Remix, MvC2, Puzzle Fighter HD, and Final Fight Double Impact. No need to chop up the online community to accomplish that.

  5. it’s MK in which death mean nothing
    they can relive the dead into zombie.. haha

    bad things is yeah nin’j Rain is not here (maybe DLC) and there is no new character to toy with TT oTT

    DLC will make the difference maybe

  6. Yeah… Those MK fans did demonstrate ‘bad character’ for releasing information for a game they’re actively excited about and felt others would find interesting.
    Everyone should recognize the absolute BRILLIANCE of the MK Team and RESPECT the SACRED act of over-hyping and marketing!
    I sure hope that those that made the leaks take a long, hard look at themselves and – eventually – make their peace with God and repent.
    Jesus… I hate spokespeople for gaming companies. They’re always the worst people to have talking about the game… 9 times out of 10, the person talking is so detached from the project, they really just read a marketing sheet before doing the interview (this is real, I have experienced first-hand being a game designer)

  7. Does anyone know who the lead gameplay/systems designer is? – As I assume Boon is just producing…

  8. Hey Blake how about putting spoilers in your post next time. Not everyone wants to know that UNTIL they played the game.

  9. Region Locking is so terrible!

    it’s just another flawed way for gamers to sell their games!

    Think of this:
    You got MK9 day it came out, online (region locked) is full of people playing in your region.
    Next month MW3 comes out and the lobby instantly gets emptied. Without much people playing others will not feel motivated to play and the only remaining people you can play it are the hardcore fans still keeping the game alive.
    WTF would you do? obviously sell the piece of sh* and use the saving to buy a new game!

    If many gamers move on to MW3 and the lobby is empty. It shouldn’t be as empty as the Region lock because you are bound to find someone playing from another country or another hardcore fan from a different region.

    Instantly fail!
    I won’t be keeping this sh* for long then I’ll sell it!

  10. Blake :@:@:@:@:@:@
