I didn't even know about this.

I'm still holding out hope for a new MK with digitized actors, whether it's a remake or a brand new game.

Why go through all of that work only to cancel it for a half-assed port?

I dunno how I feel about this. I guess if MK9 wasn't awesome, this would definitely sting.

Such a shame. Looks pretty faithful to how the original was done.

Those actors...

Anyway it looks like it would have been pretty good but TBH I wasnt that psyched about this when it was announced. MK Kollection as is, is good enough for me.

GAF hated this when some of it was shown last. But I wouldnt have minded seeing the finished product I suppose after thinking about it. They couldnt get the original actors IIRC but still, thats a lot of work they did.

This could've been so amazing.

It should've just been an MKII remake though. They probably bit off way more than they could chew trying to do all 3.

They probably couldn't get the new actors to line up properly with the original sprites and as such the hit and hurt boxes would be all wonky.

they should team up with the dudes that are currently working on a rebalanced version of Mortal Kombat II (Ultimate Mortal Kombat II is the tentative title I believe) and release this once and for all
