30 stages for Mortal Kombat 9 – minimum!

by Rip


SRK has put up an image that claims to have an image from every stage in the game. 30 stages is a TON more than any other fighting game in recent history. One of them is the Kratos stage, so unless there’s an exclusive one for 360 as well, it appears they have one less for now. (more…)

Super Street Fighter 4 – Arcade Edition Release Date Leaked!?

by Rip


This report from the BBFC, British Board of Film Classification (I think its a British system that rates the content in trailers/intros/outros etc) is showing a release date of June 24, 2011. It makes no mention if it is a DLC or separate disc sale. It does note that there is additional ~6 mins 29 seconds of additional cutscenes. Usually I wouldn’t post this kind of speculation, however it does seem pretty legitimate at this point and the site also mentions that more info would be released on the site 10 days before release.

BTW, it was also revealed in the latest arcadia magazine that Oni Akuma will be unlocked in Arcades on April 8th! Click through for the proof: (more…)

MK9 – Kintaro – Lady in Red, Kenshi DLC + Kratos Gameplay

by Rip

The May issue of GamePro magazine confirms that Lady in Red (aka Skarlett) and Kenshi will be available as DLC for the upcoming Mortal Kombat game. Also, Kintaro is confirmed to be in the game! I am certainly not a fan of DLC characters for fighting games and its even more frustrating to see it announced almost a MONTH in advance of the actual game even coming out. As a competitive player you end up being forced to get the DLC or be left behind. Overall, I think it hurts the competitive scene more than it helps it. Rant end – click the image to see the full size.

And if you missed it, here’s the Kratos Gameplay + XRAY move video that was shown off earlier this week:

Devil Returns! …with PANTS!

by Rip


Harada has just tweeted a new video of the work in progress version of Kazuya’s transformation to Devil and back. While they’ve changed Kazuya to LOOK like OG devil again, they’re making him keep the pants on! Devil with pants looks so weird haha. Harada has a note with the video basically saying that pants need to stay on otherwise when he transforms back the pants will just magically reappear. Sounds like a tough problem, but man lets face it, he just turned into a DEVIL.. where did his horns/wings come from/go to… his pants can do the same! Click here for the video

Mortal Kombat 9 Demo – 3D Impressions

by Rip


With 3D being a new technology in the world of gaming I do believe that this Mortal Kombat 9 demo is the first fighting game to support 3D on the PS3. Since the games release on PSN+ I’ve been playing it in 2D, however the last few days I’ve got to spend some time with it in 3D. Going in to this I was a little hesitant and a little skeptical about having 3D effects in a fighting game. I figure since most people don’t have a 3Dtv though I’d give my impressions on the things I do like about it in 3D along with some suggestions for the developers as well.
