Hey guys, it’s Sam. And do you know what was and is perhaps the most bloodiest, and most gruesome fighting tournament of the 90s…Mortal Kombat? You can’t NOT know that tournament. It is perhaps one of the most famous ones you’ll find. Mortal Kombat is just a tournament to determine the grand Mortal Kombat champion (currently Shaolin monk Liu Kang). But to be determined winner, combatants must battle through a stomach-churning event of guts, tears, and buckets of blood way more than a human can bleed. MK is still alive, meaning that it’s approximately 18 years old since the first game. And guess what? As an addition, the ninth main entry of the series is almost here…Mortal Kombat.

But, no lie, it actually is called Mortal Kombat. No 9; just Mortal Kombat. This game is said to be the first in the series to include 3D graphics with gameplay on the 2D plane, in other words, 2.5D. Developers have also said this is actually the first game in which they are putting in deeper gameplay to more dedicated combatants.

This game is also depicted after the events of Mortal Kombat Armageddon (the worst MK game EVER!), but set at the period when the first three games unfold. But due to a plot-line twist (Raiden now having knowledge of the future), the events are slightly altered…heh, heh. MK9 was announced on June 10, 2010, being published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and being developed by the newly-founded NetherRealm Studios. In North America, it is set for release for the PS3 and X360 on April 19, 2011.

But that’s not all. That’s not all…no, babies aren’t drinking alcohol. You’re thinking of a different song.

Are there any people out there who love God of War, but hate Mortal Kombat? Or people that just love God of War? Don’t be embarrassed. Raise your hands. Well, a special surprise is coming to the MK9 universe…Kratos is a playable character!!! Sadly, only for the PS3 version. T_T

Ed Boon (co-creator of MK and leader of NetherRealm Studios) felt that Kratos would simply fit perfectly into the MK universe. We all know he’s got another thing coming…

Keep an eye out for April 19, and it’s no fool!

Sincerely yours,
