Super Replay | Mortal Kombat (2011) – Part 4


    With Mortal Kombat 1 on the horizon, we’re revisiting the entry that set the series on its current trajectory: 2011’s Mortal Kombat (aka MK 9). Join us. Today on Twitch at 1:00pm Central As we take a bloody journey through the game’s genre-defining story campaign. Episodes will be uploaded on us. Sports Informer Shows the YouTube channel. Next Saturday morning.

    After 2006’s Mortal Kombat: Armageddon seemingly ended the franchise’s central narrative, 2011’s entry left the bloody stakes. It moved the story forward by resetting the timeline, acting as a soft reboot that returned Mortal Kombat to its 2D fighting roots and ushered in the return of the classic roster. MK 9’s cinematic story mode served as an epiphany for the series and fighting games as a whole, setting the blueprint for narrative combat campaigns still used today. MK9’s story also serves as the first chapter in the trilogy of games that Mortal Kombat 1 created. For more on MK9 and its development, you can read this feature on how the reboot saved the franchise.

    Join editors Marcus Stewart and Kyle Hilliard as they battle their way through MK 9 to see how its reimagined tournament holds up.
