PAX East 2011: Interview – Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat might be right around the corner, but we recently had the pleasure of speaking to Brian Lebaron, designer on the upcoming game. In the interview, he spoke to us a bit about what we can expect to see in the upcoming release, and even provided a small taste of the recently announced challenge tower mode.

I then proceeded to hand Tyler his own ass in a 1-on-1 match. Sadly we didn’t get to film that.

    See what happens when a company listens to the consumer? The game turns out absolutely awesome, and most likely will sell very well.

    Nice interview. And lol Tyler got whooped.

    Never played mortal combat really...but after listening to this interview and seeing that demo it makes me want the game. Looks super awesome! :D

    I really can't wait for this game to come out in a month. The tower mode will probably keep me occupied for awhile . But I am still debating on whether to get this game for PS3 or xbox....

    Game looks really cool and I enjoyed the demo.
    Problem is, it comes out on the same day as portal 2, which will probably reduce it's sales :S

    Still debating if I will buy Mortal Kombat or LA NOIRE. In terms of replay value Mortal Kombat has LAN beat by a landslide.


  18. By Bobssy2 on 03-14-2011 12:45

    I might actually buy this mortal kombat. Idk
