Due to the big news yesterday
we decided to push Mortal Movie Monday
off to Tuesday this week.
This week's feature presentation is the featurette Behind Mortal Kombat 3: Into The Outworld
, which details the creation of Mortal Kombat 3
and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
original arcade and home versions. This piece was chosen due to celebrate Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon
being selected this week as one of the Hot 100 Game Developers of 2009 by EDGE
but also one of the Top 100 Game Creators of all time by IGN
Behind Mortal Kombat 3: Into The Outworld
was a piece of promotional material used to promote the upcoming Mortal Kombat 3
. I even remember coming across this on a local Chicago television channel once by accident, I used to have it on VHS somewhere. It was later included along with Midway Arcade Treasures
that shipped with Mortal Kombat 3
. It's also one of the most in-depth behind the scenes looks into the creation of a Mortal Kombat game.
So for those who haven't seen it yet before, I hope you enjoy a look into the creation of the final traditional 2D Mortal Kombat game.
