Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance to Redefine Fighting Game Genre with All-New Fighting System, Brutal Fatalities and Supernatural Mystique
Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance delivers the highly acclaimed series to the next-generation consoles with a lethal dose of unparalleled brutality, supernatural mystique and a reinvented fighting system. Beginning the next chapter in the battle of good versus evil, two powerful sorcerers - Shang Tsung and Quan Chi - join forces to deliver unrivaled fighting action in their quest for supreme mortality.
"The Mortal Kombat series shocked the world and revolutionized the fighting game category," said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway. "Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance will also be a genre-defining videogame and is being touted by gaming press as '
the most incredible advancement made to a fighting game in recent history' (Game Informer, April, 2002)."
Players engage in hand-to-hand and special-weapon combat, executing secret moves and combinations with new fatalities and deadly body blows. Lethal new warriors are added to the mix along with the return of Mortal Kombat classics -- Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, and Sonya. Hyper-realistic, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance features progressive physical damage that allows players to view the inevitable demise of their opponents while utilizing three unique fighting styles for each warrior, creating nearly unlimited fighting possibilities.
Adding to the punishing action in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is Arista Records' Adema, who have recorded a hard-driving, heavy, yet melodic, modern rock theme song titled "Deadly Alliance," done exclusively for this new Mortal Kombat videogame. The music video for "Deadly Alliance" will be featured on the game's DVD content, along with the making of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and an extensive look at the history of the Mortal Kombat series.
