Game Description
This is what is in MK ]I[, the version played. This can totaly change as
Boon and staff finish the game.

-It's like Killer Instinct in many ways:
1. Has 6 buttons, No Block you charge back to block like KI
2. 3D stages like roof tops in KI
3. Scrolling like KI
4. Combos like KI
- Ray Traced 3D human actors, like DooM in how the get all angles of
an actor.
- Not All the characters are done, and or named.
- Lots of Blood and Guts.

More to come....

The Rumors

This is where all current rumors will be spread, confirmed, denied,
etc. This will be a good way to have more people test moves, fatalities,
or whatever Boon and Tobias can come up with.

Current rumors and news:

- MK ]I[ due at same time as MK - The Movie. Sources have put it in April,
I've heard as late as May and as early as NOW for testing in ChiTown.
Boon Claims that there is no specific release date set.

- There will be 16+ characters. Six will be "classic," and 10 will be new.

- Sonya, Kano, Jax, Kung Lau, Baraka, and Sub Zero will return. Also, Smoke
and Jade will be hidden and playable. Friendships and babalities will
be back as well.

- Shao Khan won MKII. This allows the gang to compete on Earth again for
the "final showdown." And might be one four armed Foe, like Goro?

- More moves, more fatalities, more backgrounds, more rumors from last two
games, and 50% more memory will be in MK3.

- The MK3 Design Team: Ed Boon, John Tobias, Tony Goskie, John Vogel, Steve Beran,
and Dave Micich. The last two are new to the MK design staff.

- Liu Kang might return if Midway can sign Robin Shou the actor who plays
him in the movie.

Note: If you have a rumor that you would like to send in for the FAQ,
please also leave where it came from so I can confirm it.

Can i ask a question?
How do you know any of this information that you present as both fact and
rumor? Several things in there seem to be wrong, based on everything
else we know.
So, why should we believe anything in this? Did *you* play it personally?
I'm not trying to be mean here, but with all the BS we hear, I'd like to
know the source for this info before believing it.

Well, it be anything like MK2. Why wouldn't it have combos? MK2 had alot
of combos. Especially Kitana with her fan lift combos. I bet there will
be combos.

i think what we mean by the combos nowadays, especially while we are
talking about KI and MK, are in reference to the combo system used in
KI. you know, push a couple of buttons, and sit back and watch the
eye-candy. no skill. if you hit the buttons in the right order, viola,
a complete combo. we all know there were combos in MK2, except that
you had to do everything in the right order, at the right time, and
sometimes you messed up and didn't pull off the combo.

hmm, white eyes

I know it's Raiden, but he's really an Indian spirit! not a Japanese god.
