We at TRMK have launched a new contest starting today in anticipation of the upcoming release of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon for the Nintendo Wii. The contest is called Mortal Mii Mondays and each Monday through the months of March and April we we will showcase a fan-created Mortal Kombat themed Mii with the most votes for that week.

At the end of April, there will be a final vote-off contest between all the top Miis from each week during the two months. The top three winners of this contest will walk away with a copy of Mortal Kombat Armageddon for the Nintendo Wii or the Nintendo Wii Classic Controller.

So starting now we are looking for your best creations, which can be entered on our contest submission form. Users will need to upload a digital camera image of the Mii creation. Then, their Mii be voted on by a jury of their peers. People entering the contest also have an added option to earn five bonus votes by submitting to us a creation guide for their MK Mii using our customer Mii Creator pages of the Submission Form.

Once we have a few submissions, everyone can vote for them on the main contest page. The first Mortal Mii will be showcased next Monday, one week from now. Check out the first fan-submitted Mii of Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon on the right of this news story.

Midway was kinda enough to advance us a set of screenshots from the upcoming Nintendo Wii version of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. The Wii's innovative controller extends the battle into the player's hands, extending special moves and fatalities to hand and arm gestures. This unique control scheme is also incorporated into the Konquest Story Mode as evident in the aforementioned screenshots. In addition to the new control scheme, Khameleon makes a return to the franchise after being left off of the PlayStation 2 and Xbox rosters.




Mortal Kombat: Armageddon for the Nintendo Wii is scheduled for a release Mid-May 2007 release. For more information, screenshots, videos and strategy guides, visit our Mortal Kombat: Armageddon GameRealm.

Midway is starting to make the "spring rounds" across the traditional and online media offices and is bringing along their latest Mortal Kombat project, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon for the Nintendo Wii. First stop seems to be always the Mortal Kombat friendly Game Informer. GI got some time with the Wii fighter and put together some impressions and a few more tidbits.

Under the oversight of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks producer, Shawn Himmerick, MK: Armageddon for the Wii will feature exclusive additions to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions. Exclusives include, a training mode that teaches special moves and how to link them, an Endurance Mode similar to the mode featured in Mortal Kombat: Unchained for the Sony PSP, and the addition of Khameleon. In addition, a new basic move is introduced allowing the player to "lie down flat" in order to avoid any projectiles or high attacks, while still being left open for low attacks and ground slams. Another small detail revealed was the use of the Wii remote speaker, as a sound will confirm the entry of a special move using the B button and arm motions.

As we played the game, one thing we noticed quickly is we performed many more supers than we would have with the PS2 or Xbox version. It mainly was a battle of the supers until we realized we had normal attacks to vary up the battle. But since supers are so much simpler to pull off, it’s more than likely they’ll be much more frequent additions in battles. However, performing supers all the time against experienced opponents will most likely get you killed, so keeping a good balance of regular moves versus super moves will help your success rate.

Check out a few more screenshots, details and some thoughts on multiplayer and the Motor Kombat mini-game in the rest of the Game Informer article. In addition, a gameplay video also features a good smattering of everything from Konquest to Kreate a Fighter. Mortal Kombat: Armageddon for the Nintendo Wii plans to support progressive scan and widescreen modes and is currently planned for a Mid-May 2007 release.
