On the heels of a masterful and unique interview
with Mortal Kombat
co-creator, Ed Boon
, comes another generic "gee I've heard that before" interview
over at GameDaily
. The feature mildly touches on the new gameplay additions and reveals that the next generation Mortal Kombat game is on track to be out sometime in 2008.
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon
As I started chatting with the co-creator of Mortal Kombat about the changes being made to Armageddon, I soon began to understand why the MK series has less depth and caters a lot more to the casual gamers than hardcore gamers. Ed Boon is a Tekken fan. He told me that when he's home playing for fun he plays Tekken, it's his favorite fighting game. In fact, when I asked Boon if he had seen the full length Tekken 6 trailer, he hadn't and was overjoyed when I showed it to him on my camcorder. He loves the depth in Tekken, but he also understands that it can be hard for a casual gamer to get into a deep fighter like that. Mortal Kombat is his work and he decided to make the MK titles more accessible to the casual gamers.
is scheduled to be released in October 2006
and is the final Mortal Kombat
fighting game on Microsoft Xbox
and Sony PlayStation 2
