The last Mortal Kombat, pitting the series’ stalwarts against characters from DC comic’s stable was T-rated – meaning the game was devoid of the gratuitous, over-the-top violence the series is known for. Mortal Kombat 9 – due next year – won’t be quite as tame.
"We’re going to be as M-rated as we’ve ever been," said series co-creator Ed Boon. "Mortal Kombat is known for and associated with violence, and we’re definitely going back to that," he added. It’ll be violent – and anatomically korrect, too, by the sounds of things.
"The developers are actually modelling the insides of each character, from brains to bowels," he told EGM "When you cut somebody in half, rip their arms off, or otherwise dismember them you will see their realistically rendered insides as they come spilling out of their body." "Eyes are gouged from their sockets, faces are disfigured, and limbs are torn asunder." Sexy!
all the violence in the world won’t make the game more appealing (to anyone over 12) if the fighting system itself isn’t worthwhile. thankfully that too seems to be reworked quite nicely – going back to the basics of Mortal Kombat II’s superior gameplay, and eschewing gimmicks like dial-a-combo’s and weapons seen in later games.
