When it comes to rumors, we tend to avoid them as they're often the product of someone's rampant imagination. However, this time we've received some credible information and have checked our sources who provided our previous rumored information
, which was corroborated by the registering of MKArmageddon.com
passed onto us a tip he received that the next issue of Game Informer
, Issue #154
to be exact, will feature a world exclusive article on the upcoming game Mortal Kombat: Armageddon
. This makes sense because in the past Game Informer
has gained the first exclusive looks at the next Mortal Kombat
games. The tip included hints at some of the features of the upcoming game, such as a Create a Kombatant
mode where you can change the appearance, fighting styles, weapon and even some form of custom fatalities for your character! My guess is that this character would be either used for Konquest and/or Online Play, with the features and abilities to be unlocked via the Krypt system. I'm excited to see what Midway
allows us to do with this, if the rumor is in fact, true.
In addition to the custom characters, it appears we may be getting ALL
the previous kombatants from every Mortal Kombat
game, even bosses like Motaro
and rare characters like Rain
. It was also noted that some of the characters absent in the recent games will be sporting some updated looks. The community should be happy with this, because all of their favorite characters will be returning.
We also heard a rumor that a lot, maybe even all, of the stages from the previous games will also be returning along with the characters. I was just thinking the other day while playing Mortal Kombat 3
, what it would be like to see the city levels in a future 3D Mortal Kombat
The source also touched upon the improved Konquest System
we mentioned a few months ago, noting that it is more like Shaolin Monks
this time around. Also it was mentioned that the fighting system was updated with the ability to fly; however, we have heard a rumor that Mortal Kombat: Armageddon
will actually feature an air combo system not seen in the previous MK games. I'm not talking about the typical air juggle Mortal Kombat
combos, but rather in-air button combos. Maybe this what the tipser interpreted as flying.
It will be interesting to see if these rumors pan out, I guess we'll just have to wait to find out. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any information as we receive it.
