Watch the Evolution of Mortal Kombat’s Pit

1 min read


The 9th Mortal Kombat looks, by all accounts, to be a fine return to form for the formerly faltering fatality-fuelled fighter. I’ll be honest in saying that I’ve pretty much hated almost every iteration since the 2nd; the dial-a-combos introduced in 3 made it a game about who could press buttons quickest – and the weapon-based gameplay introduced afterwards made the game a poor man’s Soul Calibur – only much bloodier.

In the trailer after the jump you can see how the game’s iconic “Pit” level has evolved through the game’s many versions – and just how awesome it looks for the new game, due next year.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
