Midway issued a press release
today announcing the shipment of Mortal Kombat Advance to retailers. Here is the official company line on Mortal Kombat Advance.
Derived from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Mortal Kombat Advance delivers punishing fighting action, which fans of the franchise crave. In single-player mode, players choose from more than 20 playable characters -- including returning fighters, level bosses and secret hidden characters -- to stop the evil Shao Kahn and his minions from taking over the "Earth Realm." Players compete in intense hand-to-hand and special-weapon combat as they fight their way through mysterious fantasy-like worlds and unleash special combination moves and fatalities on their opponents. In multi-player mode, players can challenge their friends in one-on-one or two-on-two battles using the Game Boy Advance Game LinkŪ Cable.
Word is that this game is horrible. Don't expect to see anything close to the quality of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo Revival. This game could be the worst release of MK on a competitive console.
