the only way i can see a mortal kombat game comming out on the 360 is if they port over armageddon, as they said themselves that MK Armageddon will be the last one made.

Source? I can't see them ever stopping as long as the games are selling, that's just a bad business decision.

no killuh you got it all wrong.
they are done with all of those characters, they are getting rid of all of them (except scorpion and sun-zero) and they're starting over for the next gen.

Monkey has it correct.
Though we do not know which old charecters are going to be in the game.

Do you have a source for that? I'd love to see screenshots!

Screenshots of what?
I said that we do not know what old charecters are going to be in the game though Boon said popular charecters.

"As the final chapter of Mortal Kombat on current generation gaming platforms, we're eager to raise the bar for the fighting genre yet again with Mortal Kombat: Armageddon,"

I cant find the interview with Ed Boon talking about the next gen games, but theres proof that there will be more Kombat!

By reading IGN. I'll try to find the article.

EDIT: Check out the article that other guy posted in here. That article said late 2008. IGN said late 2007. But i would probably believe Boon than IGN.

There keeping some of the older characters, but most of them are going for the next gen. I bet scorpion stays because its Ed Boons favourite character:uzi:.

Smoke and Baraka are my all time favorites so I really hope they keep them in the series.

Actually the producers said that MK armageddon was the last one for the current gen. The next gen console will get a MK just with new characters.

I really hope they are gonna keep the coolest characters around in the next game, at least as unlockables or something, or otherwise they really need to pull of a new group of awesome fighters, which seems a quite hard task given that the old ones were so great.

All I'm saying is Lui Kang better be in the game...

MK is not finished. Boon just said he's done with this generation of MK. He's starting anew and he stated that the main main characters might still make it into the next-gen of MK. But everything else will be scrapped. He wants a new direction for the story and the biggest thing he's changing is the level of combat. He has said little so far as to what he means by that but he said he was taken aback by the content of Gears of War.

He also stated that he'd imagine the game'd be finished around "November-ish 2008".

Btw I just hope there are no ranked or super-time-consuming achievements for MK8. Cause knowing Boon he'll probably make some Gears-like time-consuming achievements. "Perform 1000 Online Ranked Fatalities" or some crap like "Perform 100,000 Total Combos in Super-Ranked Matches."

Whatever, as long as he doesn't do something like kill Liu Kang this time around, I'm set... well, and as long as Sub-Zero's a god!

MK 2 was the best out of the series IMO. They killed it with MK4 and every one beyond that. Except Trilogy, which was the best compilation.
Most of the new characters they brought out were LAME.
I hope they keep Kung Lao and Scorpion though.

Kung Lao, are you serious? His moves are lame in my opinion. Lui Kang and Scorpion are must keeps. It'll slightly dampen the experience if some of my favourite characters don't appear in the game in sexy high definition graphics :(

from anything ive heard / read, its gonna be a whole revamp on what is current MK.
armegeddon is the end of last gen MK, and 360 PS3 and maby wii will host the new MK games, which is supposed to use the unreal engine that GOW and UT3 use, it will be a darker goryer game.

all new fighters, all old ones? i dont care, ill buy it on release day.

Mortal Kombat 9 huh? Well atleast they went back to numbers.

Armageddon was a joke, it was clearly just a compilation that wasn't too detailed.
Look at Sektor's character! His whole body model was crappy, it looked like something that would've been made back in the 90s.
His UMK costume looks better compared to the MKA one.

I hope there is a whole new concept to the MK series to help Midway redeem itself from the huge mistake that MKA was.

Mortal Kombat is never going to die. Fifty years from now they are still going to be making them.

I don't believe you because of how much of a commercial failure all 3D Mortal Kombats were and how Midway Games are in major debt.

i hope if they do make this game they still put in a bit of humour like MK3 had babiyalitys and friendships.

I counldn't find the source but he is right. When MKA was released Midway said it was the last one... but I think they meant last in PS2/Xbox/Gamecube era. Why would they ever stop making it if its still loved by millions.

Plus a new MK was revealed so that means it's being made.

I'm excited for the newer one to come out. MKvsDCU had potential but was clearly hampered by the DC/Teen license and also the timeframe. It was rushed IMO. Here's hoping the newer one goes back to their roots (snes/genesis days) and not too many people complain about mortal kombat

02-14-2010, 10:52 AM
This topic and the OP are both fucking jokes. Armageddon wasn't the last MK, as MK vs. DC is proof of that.

This new MK is still in development as you can see on Boon's twitter. He stated himself that they were working on fatality mo-caps or animation and I bet there will be news about it at this year's E3.

Mortal Kombat's no where close to finished. More people liked MK vs DC (myself included) than apparently everybody likes to think, and MK 9 looks to be a fantastic return to form for the series. This series looks to hold onto to its place in the fighting game market for a while.

Oh how little faith. the series is back and gonna be better than ever. Armageddon sucked but looks like Ed boon got the picture. This new mortal kombat could be the best they've made.

I agree with you there, this game is looking like it will easily be the best MK.
I don't where I read it but apparently this game is the most violent video game ever made. Hopefully that's true. :p

Lol this thread is old!

Ok so if anyone played the mortal kombat 9 campaign you would now there will be another mortal kombat. But with a bunch of different characters. But what I think is that from the mortal kombat 9 campaign at the end only a few people survived plus one dead guy but he still got taken with the others. But those survivors are Quinn chi, raiden, Sonya blade, jhonny cage and Liu kang but he's dead. So I hope this helps your guys eagerness.
