The Machinima clip posted after the jump is, in many ways, deplorable. It shows some of our most beloved game characters of all time brutally fatality-ing a number of Mortal Kombat fighters, and we're finding it difficult to shake. On the other hand, we've gotta have that NBA Jam cameo. We need it.
The newest chapter of the iconic fight franchise marks a triumphant return to the series' mature presentation and a reinvention of its classic 2D fighting mechanic. Driven by an all new graphics engine, the fan favorite Fatality is back and presented in more gory detail than ever before. In addition, Mortal Kombat introduces a number of new game-play features including tag team and the deepest story mode of any fighting game. Players can choose from an extensive lineup of the game's iconic warriors and challenge their friends in traditional 1 vs. 1 matches, or take on several new game modes.
