MK5 News

    Stuff we now know about MK5

    • Same design team as The Grid

    • Definately a new control layout

    • Possible multi-leveled fighting arenas, definately some slanted floors are being thought of.

    • Models for Scorpion, Raiden, and Jax are complete. Scorpion is only the definately confirmed characters.

    • Luis Mangubat did the models, has a new "style" to the characters. "GROUND BREAKING S#I%" - Mike Teran

    • Dynamic animation is being looked at by Todd Allen, including handling some inverse kinematics. This is where someone gets hit in the shoulder the shoulder reacts to that hit dynamically.

    • Ed Boon had his usual hints thrown in now and then during the chat, one being W-I-D-E-S-C-R-E-E-N and the other being ORSMAb. They say ORSMAb is Alan Villani, we'll have to wait to see what develops on this one.

    • To quote AlanVillani: "Prepare to be blown away when you see MK5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
