Midway unveil Deadly Alliance

Mortal Kombat returns...

Midway has announced the latest addition to the interminable Mortal Kombat series. The latest generation will mark the relaunch of the franchise with an all-new engine that Midway claim will deliver punishing action to adequately reward long-time fans of the series. As if they still exist. Obviously, the game will focus on hand-to-hand and weapon-based combat, and being a Mortal Kombat game, the mainstay of the attraction will be special moves, combinations and deadly finishing moves. In a prepared statement, a Midway spokesman optimistically described Mortal Kombat : Deadly Alliance as "the next phase of the Mortal Kombat series that gamers have been waiting for." He then used the term "never-before-seen" to describe the game's feature set, but we fell for that one with Mortal Kombat III, and don't intend to make the same mistake twice. Ho-hum. Nevertheless, the MK franchise commands awesome potential as a money-spinner for otherwise quiet former arcade gurus Midway. The series has sold over 19 million copies - in various incarnations - since 1992, generating more than $1.5 billion in revenue through games, movies, music, toys and other merchandise. Mortal Kombat : Deadly Alliance is set to be released on PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube and GameBoy Advance. Related Feature - Midway quit arcades
