Mortal Kombat Gets Personal

Friday, May 12, 2006, 11:56AM EST

Another long-running success story treading the tightrope between reinvention and pleasing its millions of existing fans is Midway’s Mortal Kombat. There are two games available on the showfloor with Mortal Kombat: Armageddon marking the franchise’s final PlayStation 2 and Xbox appearance, while the series also makes its handheld debut.


Bringing all the expected MK goodness to PSP, Mortal Kombat: Unchained has a new endurance mode so players can build up their skills before going head-to-head with their friends via the PSP’s Wi-Fi. Meanwhile Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is certainly ending its current generation existence with a bang. One big improvement is the Konquest mode. Previously a simple training option, it’s been expanded into a complete adventure with its own story. Another addition is the option to create your own fighter; something series co-creator Ed Boon is really excited about (see Create-You-Own-Mortal-Kombat).
