Episode #9 of MKast
has finally been posted over at Worlds Collide
and on iTunes
. This new episode
features special guests MK Creative Director Ed Boon
and Senior Designer Paulo Garcia
. This episode was created just after the game's release and their initial reaction to the players getting their hands on the game. They also reveal some Fatalities
and Pro Moves
, which due to the late release of the podcast are already known
. Lots of topics are discussed from past to future games.
What I really enjoyed was Ed talking about the past and how Fatalities
all had to be discovered in the arcades. He wouldn't tell people how to do them, and always be amazed when he saw someone do them. He mentioned how he first saw someone do Shang Tsung's Kintaro Morph Fatality
from Mortal Kombat 2
at the now closed Dennis' Place For Games
. These are the days that I miss, of the community having to actually discover each fatality one at a time. I remember going to the arcades each day to see what else has been discovered, or even rushing to the arcades after reading about a new discovery on the Usenet
. Brings back some great memories.
During the MKast they also teased Mortal Kombat 9
again, which they jokingly referred to as MK9: Attack of the Dogs
. We're not sure what that means, but it'll be interesting to see what they have up their sleeves. Ed had mentioned before
that development has already begun in some form. Since the engine is already in place, I'm sure it wont be too long until we know more about the next Mortal Kombat game. I just hope it doesn't have a "Attack Dog" feature like Call of Duty: World at War
Thanks to MK_Sarah
over on the Midway Boards
