Thanks to reader Michael Kaufman for informing us that there are actually two more pages to the Mortal Kombat: Armageddon feature in Issue #154 of Game Informer than we thought before. Those pages contain even more information and further details over what we announced previously, including details on the Kreate-a-Fighter feature, details on the new Fatality system, the new Krypt and a new "strange" mini game! Below are some thumbnails of the pages, be sure to go and pick up your copy from your local EB Games or Gamestop when the issue hits store fronts later this month if you'd like to see them in more detail.





In the Kreate-a-Fighter feature you are given six pages of options in creating your custom fighter. Everything from nose size, eye angle, color of garments, belt, and even your own fighting style. But your own fighting style isn't just assigning a preset fighting style to character, but instead you actually get to assign every attack you can make and name the fighting style whatever you want to!

Another big feature that was elaborated further in the issue is the expansion of the new Fatality system. Now instead of just watching a Fatality act out like a movie or play, instead you will be able to control every step in the Fatality. You will be given a set allotment of time to execute various movements, some exclusive to your fighter, to decimate your victim. The amount of possible moves are not set in stone yet, it depends on how much they can squeeze into the game's memory.

Also they mention that the old Krypt is now going to be revamped and called The Vault now. Now you will not have to focus on one area of the game to unlock the Vault contents, instead content can be unlocked from all the various game modes. That means if you don't like Konquest, you could still unlock the hidden content via the Arcade mode instead.

Finally, one sad note is that the former mini games, Puzzle Kombat and Chess are not making a return in this game. Instead there is a mention of a new "strange" online multiplayer game that supports up to 8 players at once. I personally can't wait to see what this may be. I personally would love to see something similar to the MK Team's arcade multiplayer shooter game The Grid make an appearance.

This game will be th best fighting game ever, all the characters from the previous games. The kreate a kombatant and fatality mode sounds awsome. Any talk of pre-order or is it still in the making? The cover for Febuary's issue is cool, and this info is amazing.

I hope you can play regular 1-on-1 fights online, as well as this "strange" 8 player mode. Replayability is just so much better.

It's to give you an idea of the magazine's contents. The magazine should be in stores soon so you can go check it out.

nice discovery. man those pics have good quality but are bright like heaven it self. but holy shit man that news is awsome. I would find the air combo breaker a good defence plus boon made a cool 15 hit combo with the new air combat feature. And i got a better look at the create-a-character feature as well and it was awsome. I can't wait this long. Let the rumors be false and let MKA be out in February

Yeah, he did..and he looks really stupid. I wish they had at least kept his MK4 look, instead of putting facial hair on him (wtf?)
January 16th, 2006 10:13 AM CST - Rain Demon

Yeah. Those stores exclusively carry Game Informer at the checkout desks. Get it soon before they come out with the next issue.
January 28th, 2006 10:18 PM CST - Kal-El
when will that be?
January 29th, 2006 9:00 AM CST - Patrick McCarron
The issue with MKA featured in it is already on store shelves, but within the next 3 weeks or so the next issue will be there. So I'd get it sooner than later.

do you think the magazine will be sold out?
