Kreate A Fighter Must Return!

Posted by MortalKombatX on July 22, 2014 at 8:20 AM Comments comments ()

The only MK game to ever have the Kreate-A-Fighter mode is MK Armageddon. Like the Impale move in Deadly Alliance, and the Hara-Kiri in Deception, it seems to be a one-time only thing. I say, every MK game should include this feature.  

This must return in the upcoming 2015 game. Must!


But, what else could be done to escalate the custom fighter mode's greatness?

The Original Palette Swaps

Posted by MortalKombatX on June 30, 2014 at 10:05 AM Comments comments ()

Mortal Kombat has been known since its beginning for using the technique of palette-swapping to recolor the sprites of one character to be used for a second character - Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Reptile.  MK2 brought the 3 male ninjas back, and added 3 female assassins as well.  MK3 involved a palette-swapped set of 3 cybernetic characters, and Ultimate MK3 used 3 sets of palette-swapped characters simultaneously for male ninjas, female ninjas, and cybernetics.

But what ...

Hey MK team. You guys should remake MK: Special Forces.

Although it's exciting to think that the 2015 Mortal Kombat X game is going to explore all kinds of new characters and stories, it would also be cool if someone remade MK: Special Forces.

This game looked like the most exciting on Earth when I was 12, in the year 2000, when I read about it in magazines.

All the Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbols Ever (1992-2015)

Posted by MortalKombatX on June 8, 2014 at 11:10 PM Comments comments ()

I can't even imagine what the dragon symbols will look like in 2019, but I wonder.

In 1992, Mortal Kombat was just one thing on Earth: an arcade game.  Thus, it was assumed that this was the one and only dragon symbol that would be used in Mortal Kombat's expansions into action figures, comic books, trading cards, and other...

Kloth Bags? Mortal Kombat Environmental Konsciousness

I wish these things existed!  A variety in colors would help make it further marketable.  Maybe dark blue against blue.

I got this idea from the Lion King.  You see, the Lion King, the movie...

If You're Into Mortal Kombat . . .

Posted by MortalKombatX on April 27, 2014 at 10:10 PM Comments comments ()

If you're into Mortal Kombat, you should also be into

- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

- Flash Gordon

- Star Trek: the Next Generation

TMNT should help you appreciate Mortal Kombat's emphasis on old-style marial arts.  TMNT has much emphasis on Japanese ninjas coming to New York.  Check the early 80's comics, 1990 movie, 2003 cartoon, and the newer 2012 cartoon, 2011 comics . . . lots of ninjas.  Also, the Purple Dragons gang appear...

There are a lot of characters in Mortal Kombat.  Now let's focus on one individual: Rain.

Rain: concept art from Ultimate MK3.  I'm pretty sure this was drawn by John Tobias (whose artwork is a major source of my inspiration in MKX).

He was technically a part of Mortal Kombat 3's early arcade machine models....

Not quite the same as a Disney princess.  Take a look at the Disney princesses.

Mortal Kreativity

Posted by MortalKombatX on March 12, 2014 at 9:25 PM Comments comments ()

The fiction and mythology in Mortal Kombat is sometimes inspired by looking at real life, and imagining how whatever you see around you could be worked into the fiction.

There was Mortal Kombat, taking place on an island, and Mortal Kombat II, taking place in Outworld - all made in the Midway studios in Chicago, Illinois.  Here's Boon and Tobias on the rooftop of Midway, in Chicago.

Start with the basic 2 to 3 colors for a dragon symbol.  Then substitute each solid color for different photos of ordinary things like walls and floors.

In my comic strip, in 2006, Shang Tsung goes back in time, his consciousness sent to the body of his younger self, to avoid Shao Kahn's hammer killing him.
