Mortal Combat was a pretty violent game back in the day. It has since seemed to become a bit more oriented for younger gamers simply because it enlarges the audience buying the game. Well hardcore Mortal Combat fans have been pleading for the game to go back to the ‘glory days’ of the franchise and make it gory, essentially guaranteeing an M rating.
Midway has confirmed these hopes. Mortal Combat 9 will be gory and an M rating. Hopefully the release of Mortal Combat 9 the way gamers want it will help bring Midway out of their current financial struggles. A failed launch of this game and we could see the last of this classic company. They’ve been reporting losses and cuts for months. Is this their last shot?
