Mortal Kombat is making a comeback. While the old gang hit the current generation of HD consoles with the DC Universe in tow (which was a solid game), the upcoming title is going to move the series back to its 2D roots, perhaps taking a page from the rebirth of Street Fighter in IV.
Kotaku's hands-on preview with it confirmed that it'll be as gory as ever, with fatalities that have realistic physics support in how blood splashes and darkens over time.
Hopefully the rebirth of the franchise will also encourage the powers that be to green light the Mortal Kombat movie test pitch that hit the internet earlier this month. If you haven't seen that, check out the awesomeness here.
