New Mortal Kombat Titles Announced

Midway Games on Tuesday announced the final Mortal Kombat franchise installment for current generation gaming systems as well as a separate Mortal Kombat title for Sony’s PSP. Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is set to debut this fall and will be available for the Xbox and PlayStation 2, while Mortal Kombat: Unchained for the PSP will appear in the fall as well.

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, said Midway, will feature every character from the Mortal Kombat fighting universe, a create-your-own fighter mode and a create-your-own fatality mode. In Mortal Kombat: Unchained, features will include multiple fatalities per character, multi-tiered interactive backgrounds, different game modes including head-to-head Wi-Fi capabilities, six new fighters, and a new endurance mode.

“As the final chapter of Mortal Kombat on current generation gaming platforms, we’re eager to raise the bar for the fighting genre yet again with Mortal Kombat: Armageddon,” said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway, in a statement. “Building off of the tremendous successes of Mortal Kombat: Deception in October 2004 and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks in September 2005, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon introduces the most comprehensive cast of playable characters from every Mortal Kombat title, both past and present, in addition to the first create-a-fighter mode in franchise history.”
