Kotaku has the trailer up of the new Mortal Kombat game. It features locales and characters that are very reminiscent of the 2D games. Ed Boon claims this is an answer to what fans want, a new 2D engine, gruesome fatalities, etc.
Update: Here’s an embedded copy care of wegame.com:
Update: It appears the image of Sub Zero in the video came from here.
Konqrr created a thread about the new Mortal Kombat trailer. It is dark, gruesome, and vile. This complete reimagining of the series, if it turns into something, could be extremely violent and awesome. Here’s hoping it goes right.

22 players I believe entered, several DQs in the losers’ bracket so far as I could tell.
Well, I’m sick as a dog, but I managed to record the remainder of the MKII tournament tonight. It’s grouped as winners, losers, and finals, which contains winners finals, losers finals, and grand finals.
It seems like a couple sets are missing, if anyone who was there can tell me if I screwed up names or what matches are missing, it would be appreciated. I don’t have the patience right now, I don’t even have my glasses on lol.
Thanks again to all the players who showed. Next UMK3/MKII tournament is slated for February 27th, same location as NEC. So any players who said they would show and didn’t, you got enough time to get it in gear and show up, but it’s still close enough that it’s not a huge wait.
I hope everyone gets a good laugh at my MKII skills.
I also just uploaded the finals from the finish for ECT between me and Julian that we did during NEC. Not the greatest, more like BSing casuals done as a tournament. There is a partial infinite with Reptile, and also an uncommonly used Kabal juggle done to the frame so it’s entirely inescapable, several missed attempts at 4x axe with Nightwolf.
