In the March 2002 edition of Electronic Gaming Monthly, EGM publicized a cover story on Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance to appear in their upcoming April 2002 edition. The story was planned to "reveal all" in their attempt to uncover the first details about the game in a world-exclusive; however, it appears that Midway was not on the same page as EGM and did not send EGM images and screenshots that met the expectations of the editors. In the end, EGM decided to pull the entire article and shelve it for a later issue. You can view the scan of the explanation from the April 2002 EGM by clicking here. Thanks Steve JRF.
In a related note, GameSpot has Midway confirming MK:DA to the PlayStation 2. The PlayStation 2 was left off the initial press release announcing the Deadly Alliance subtitle. Expect to see an official release from Midway soon.
The official website for Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance has now been launched. http://www.mkdeadlyalliance.com.
UPDATE: It seems that the first "hidden" section of the MK:DA website has been found. If you goto the download section and click six times on the picture of Shang Tsung in the right hand side of the screen, you will be presented with 3 buddy icons for AOL Instant Messanger.
Midway's official MK: Deadly Alliance website revealed an important gameplay detail on its launch today. MK:DA will feature a "multiple-move-set" fighting system. Conceptually, the system will feature fighters with more than one set of moves, contrary to all past MK games, which can be changed during the course of the match. Whether the sets can be changed in the middle of the round or only before and between is not detailed.
Certainly this is a huge change in gameplay, and will definitely have a bigger impact than the RUN button or weapons ever had. Keep your eyes open for more details on the multiple-set system as it appears to be the centerpoint of the new gameplay system in MK:DA.
In the latest chapter of the MK: Deadly Alliance magazine saga, it appears that Game Informer has picked up the dropped cover story from EGM and will feature MK: Deadly Alliance on the cover of their April 2002 edition. Preliminary reports indicate that the Game Informer article will feature tons of new content breaking down the new gameplay styles, introduce new character artwork, weapons in action, and even reveal portions of the new storyline. In addition to the multitude of MK:DA information, the article will also feature an interview with Ed Boon breaking down the level of violence MK:DA will contain.
Mortal Kombat fans will only have to wait a few more weeks for their tell-all cover story of the latest installment to the Mortal Kombat series. Keep it tuned to TRMK for the lastest info on the Game Informer cover story.
Game Informer sent us a copy of the cover image from their April 2002 issue featuring the massive Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance exposť. The article will feature the first major details on new and returning characters along with tons of artwork, breakdowns of the storyline, weapons in action, and information on MK:DA's new fighting styles.
Also, the article includes an interview with Mortal Kombat co-creator, Ed Boon, which will brak down the level of violence in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.
