    i wonder if this is just for the Konquest mode, or the entire game.

    But will it finally have a fighting system that can actually challenge the Capcom and SNK games of yore?

    Then one can only hope for some truly great, realistically exaggerated gore.

    Specifically, last of the continuity. They also said that they plan to continue making them, but intend to do a full housecleaning and new build from the ground up, both engine-wise and story/character-wise.

    Personally would rather see them focus purely on an awesome engine + fatalities + create-a-character, but I have an attraction to create modes. :D

    I'll be interested to see if the new gen MK games follow the repeated pattern of slightly dodgey first attempt (MK, MK4), getting it right (MK2, MKDA), more features (MK3, MKD) and unplayable compilation game (MKT, MKA).

    I don't think he means its gonna look just like Gears. I think he just wants that detail to the backdrops and the "Destroyed Beauty" theme. I'm expecting the game to play more like Tekken. Hopefully they have a decent story too because most recent "fantasy" fighters just fail miserably.

    It is gonna run on Unreal Engine 3 so they should be able to mimmick it pretty well.

    Also Midway's plan was for there to be a yearly Mortal Kombat game. Saying that the fighting games would most likley be every other year while the off years would be filled with offshoots (like MK: Shoalin Monks which I loved and wished was 360 comaptable).

    I would like to see a new maximum shader use MK game but they need new animators and preferebly a new character design team and multiple costume choices from the start like in the SC series.

    Every game designer should think their game should look like Gears of War. If it's not that pretty, then it's not really "next gen".

    For the new MK I hope they make a create a fighter mode that if something is in the game you can use it for your custom fighter, the lack of this anoyed me on MKA. Other aspects I'll hold off judgement for the game itself. I didn't even mind the create a fatality thing they did.

    I felt Create-A-Fatality was a bust for two big reasons, myself.

    -Struck me as a blatant way to get around making 50-60 unique fatality scenes

    -Inputting an awesome CAF button sequence = not getting to actually -watch- it, half the time. Concentrating on button combos causes me to not really get a clear view of what's going on, sorta thing. Wasn't as cool as watching something wacky and violent play out. Would have preferred some kinda cutscene-maker instead.

    Though on the plus side: It finally added in the simple, Chong Li-badassish neck snap.

    It was published by MS and I'm sure they sent a lot of money and MS R&D guys their way for it as well. Plus its just an Xbox news site, the interview actually came from Game Informer and they quoted it since the next MK game is due on 360 and they found that to be relevant news for their fans.
