According to sources at Midway, Mortal Kombat Mythologies is indeed a 2D 1/2 scrolling action and adventure game. The graphics will be close to the way that Killer Instinct was rendered. To clarify what I mentioned in the last update of Mythologies, Sub-Zero will move in and out of the backgrounds by the use of zooming and scaling. Along Sub-Zero's journey, he will encounter warriors from the Mortal Kombat series and team up with them in battles. So far there are 8 enormous 3D texture-mapped levels with real-time lighting planned for the game. Also, Sub-Zero and 30 other characters will all be digitized in that Killer Instinct look along with movie-like sequences to present story elements. As for a release date, look for Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero in stores before the holiday season.
