Official Website for the National Mortal Kombat Tournament with a 21K Prize Pool is Now Live

If you thought Mortal Kombat was just going to be all fun and gore with no competitive scene, the upcoming National Tournament may change your mind about all that. This tournament will take place on May 14th through the 15th at Bally's in Las Vegas, NV. With a shared prize pool of 21K, I think it's safe to say that players will be grinding real hard as soon as the game drops for a chance to get some of the cash. 

The official website for the tournament is now open, and while there aren't too many details about the event itself, you can submit your email to be notified when registration is open. Check it out by clicking here.

Wolverine Vs Power Rangers Mix

I saw this link on Facebook just a few minutes ago and I guess it's good to know I'm not the only person who thinks Wolvie's theme in MVC3 is identical to the Power Rangers theme. This is a video that mixes the two together, and while it's off key in a few spots, the similarities are pretty hard to miss. Gotta' love the "album art" as well. Hah!

2D Forever: The Fall and Rise of Hardcore Japanese Game Design

Guardian.co.uk has a great -- and really long -- article about the resurrection of 2D fighting games and shmups over the past few years. It's got Arc System Works' Daisuke Ishiwatari discussing how BlazBlue came to be, what inspirations it draws from and a bunch more. Below is a taste of the article, and you can find the full thing over at this link.

" 'The main goal was to create a brand new fighting title that introduced systems and gameplay elements that people had never experienced before,' says Mori who counts sci-fi movies Bladerunner, Gattaca and Brazil as well as the manga series, Trigun, among his key influences. 'With this in place, I wanted to then create a 'universe' on top of it. We focused on creating very strange, very unusual characters with special attributes. These very 'different' characters meant inventing new gameplay mechanics by necessity – the 'Drives' are special abilities that can alter the direction of the wind, magnetise opponents, absorb health and so forth. With these kinds of mechanics in place, it was inevitable that BlazBlue ended up being such a unique and interesting experience.' "

Mortal Kombat Secret Achievements List Reveal Cyber Sub-Zero & More

Danny D sent over a link containing a list of achievements for Mortal Kombat that reveal that Cyber Sub-Zero and Quan Chi will be unlockable characters. If they are playable or not is yet to be seen, but I wouldn't doubt it considering it looks like there will be no end to additional characters via DLC.

The same list also hints at a few other things, such as "Complete-ality" where it mentions you must perform one of each "-ality". Does that mean we can expect things like Anamalities and Babalities? Hmmm! Check out the full list by clicking here

Chinatown Fair as it was will be missed, but it's nice to see that they're getting back on their feet so quickly. If you'd like to check out the vids, see below.

Interview with MVC3 Producer Ryota Niitsuma on Why Spectator Mode Wasn't Included & the State of Additional DLC Characters

Professor on MMCAFE translated a recent interview from 4gamer.net with Ryota Niitsuma on why spectator mode wasn't included in Marvel vs Capcom 3 and the state of additional DLC characters beyond Jill and Shuma-Gorath. In short, Niitsuma said there is too much going on with MVC3 to include a spectator mode, and no other DLC characters are planned at this time even though they are easy to implement.

There are a few other notes from the interview such as how the developers went about implementing X-Factor among other things. Check out a small excerpt after the break, and read the rest by clicking here

MVC3: 300+ Hit Combo by Kusoru

SMOAI2010 uploaded a pretty wild combo from Kusoru that clocks in at over 300+ hits. He uses a lot of clever DHCs between X-23, Sentinel and Dark Phoenix to make this happen, all while building plenty of meter through out the combo to keep it going. 

A word of warning, before you watch this video you'll probably want to mute your speakers as the music could potentially make your ears bleed!
