Stryker Joins The Cast of Mortal Kombat: Rebirth

Posted on February 16, 2011

From starting out as what seemingly seemed like nothing more than a one and done film pitch, Mortal Kombat: Rebirth has quickly blossomed into what could be an amazing project if everything falls into line.  With Director Kevin Tancharoen (the dude who directed the original pitch short) at the helm of the nine part MK: Rebirth web series, we should receive the same dark and grounded MK retelling we all fell in love with last year.

Noob Saibot And Sindel Revealed In New Mortal Kombat Video

Posted on February 16, 2011

With most of the classic MK 1 and 2 cast already revealed, there are only a handful of character announcements left for Mortal Kombat. Two have just been shown off in a new video at IGN – Noob Saibot and Sindel.

It looks like Noob can split apart and attack with both versions of himself. It’s almost reminiscent of when he was Noob-Smoke and could switch back and forth on the fly. Also of note is his name – he’s been referred to as simply Noob on many occasions ever since John Tobias left the series, but it seems like he’ll feature his full name once again (Noob Saibot is “Tobias Boon” backwards, a reference to the series co-creators).

Despite the video being very Noob-focused, you can clearly see Shao Kahn’s bride Sindel in many shots. You can see a quick glimpse of her below.

Kratos Will Appear In Mortal Kombat On PS3, Other Characters Possibly Leaked

Posted on December 08, 2010

We’ve seen crossovers in fighting games before (Link/Heihachi/Spawn in Soul Calibur II, Yoda and Vader in Soul Calibur IV, etc), but few are as perfect a fit as an appearance we’ve recently learned about. According to the latest issue of OPM, the God of War himself will be fully playable in the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot.

He won’t be selectable in the main story mode, but in VS mode he’ll feature his own full moveset, complete with fatalities. David Jaffe, director of the original God of War, has already enthusiastically commented about the inclusion on his Twitter page:

LOVE that Kratos is in the new MK. So bummed he’s not in the story portion. Heard about it from Ed at E3 this year and had to keep super mum on it but man, ****ing LOVE it. He totally fits in that world. I **** you not- on some level I feel like all the characters I work on are alive and that I have a relationship with them and I can tell you, if I know Kratos- and I do!- he’s ****ing LOVING his time in the MK Universe. I bet he makes a **** ton of friends there. He should pull Zeus in and ****ing leave his ass there!

As a huge fan of both God of War and Mortal Kombat, this news definitely gets me even more excited for a game that already looks amazing. One has to wonder about whether the game will also feature an exclusive character for the 360 version.

In addition to the Kratos news, some leaked info from the official MK site may have revealed some previously unannounced fighters. Goro, Quan Chi, Stryker (ugh), Noob Saibot, Sindel, Kabal, Smoke, Shang Tsung, and Ermac can all be heard in the video below. Other videos with the audio have been quickly pulled from YouTube, so don’t be surprised if it gets pulled any minute.

Exciting new Mortal Kombat footage and news

Posted on October 30, 2010
Check out a classic MK character once again in action.

Earlier this week we were promised some new goodness for Mortal Kombat and we certainly got that last night on Gametrailers TV.  Not only did the new episode of GT TV feature a ton of info and insight on the development process of the new MK game, but it also revealed a new roster addition: Major Jackson “Jax” Briggs.  Good old power arms Jax will be joining the brutal battle that is Mortal Kombat and I must say that I’m really digging his look and moves set so far.  Jax’s back breaker move in particular has that perfect brutal look to it and his victory celebration pose of …
