A Longtime Member Of The Mortal Kombat Community Needs Our Help!

by Roy Arkon on Sep 23, 2022 :: 3
Тhis is not the kind of news that we usually post here. However, it is just as important if not even more so and it needs to be addressed and shared.

For those of you who don't know, there is a longtime member of the Mortal Kombat community named Jason Sodano, also known as Check. He's best known for his YouTube channel where over the years he has posted a lot of MK and NetherRealm Studios/Warner Bros. game videos, mainly for the 3D era of MK games. He also helped at putting together episodes 8, 9 and 10 of The History of Mortal Kombat.

Unfortunately, over the course of the last year and half, Check has suffered some severe health issues, which caused him an immense amount of pain and mental suffering. In October of 2021, fearing the worst, he made his condition public knowledge via a heartbreaking post over at fellow Mortal Kombat fan site Test Your Might.

Almost a year later, Check reappeared with a new Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance combo video, informing everyone that the fight for his health still continues and is unfortunately far from over.

The ongoing health issues led to so many medical bills, that it left him no choice but to start a Go Fund Me page in order to raise enough money to pay for the treatment that he needs.

We are humbled by the strength of everyone suffering an ongoing medical problem and ask everyone who can to support Check in his time of need to do so. Any help is appreciated and welcome.

Huge thanks to ded for informing us about this situation.

And for those who are interested to see Check's work, check out his latest Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance combo video right here, enjoy.



John Tobias With More MK1 Origin Stories: Series Name, Dragon Logo And More

by Roy Arkon on Sep 22, 2022 :: 1
In just above a couple of weeks, Mortal Kombat will celebrate it's 30th anniversary, and we got yet another origins story en route to the occasion, this time from John Tobias, with the main topic being origins of the iconic MK dragon logo, and how it led to various other stuff being given and made for the series, including the Mortal Kombat name.

Tobias starts the story by sharing a recently discovered image of the first drawing of the MK dragon logo, followed by how fellow MK team member, John Vogel, used the digitized graphics system of Mortal Kombat 1 to literally digitize the drawing into the character select screen of the game.
Tobias then shares that the original planned for the game was supposed to be "Dragon Attack", a name that came for a song by the iconic band Queen, of which Ed Boon is huge fan of (and they were even given a reference through Rain's 2nd Fatality in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate). That is, of course, until both Boon and Tobias changed the title to Mortal Kombat. Tobias also shares that this was the inspiration for using a dragon as the symbol for the tournament, although not as the logo for the whole series at that point yet.
Tobias continues the story by saying that the idea of using the dragon symbol as the overall logo for the series came from a golden dragon statue that was on the desk of Ken Fedesna, the general manager of Midway at the time. This also led to the addition of the golden dragon statue at MK1's Shang Tsung's Throne Room stage as well as the dragon on the side panel for the game's Arcade machine.
As you can see, the original logo had the dragon facing left. However, until Mortal Kombat II, the logo was used facing both sides for the Arcade machines. With Acclaim's console releases of the games, the MK choose to keep only the right version of the logo as they could've only use one for marketing purposes. Tobias then shares that the final design for the dragon icon was an attempt at replicating the yin yang symbol, which represented balancing of the furies- a core part of MK’s early fiction
Tobias ends the story a couple of extra notes: Firstly, he tells the he almost tossed the sketch for the dragon icon thanks for his sister, and finally, he shares a picture of the same golden dragon statue that was used for the logo, that was found by Boon 30 years later.
This is a classic case of the domino effect, as one idea have led to so many other things that we are know and familiar with in the MK series. Looks like the dragon has indeed scorched a ton of land, and marked it's territory by a flame that still burns strong for 30 years, and nothing is going to extinguish that flame.

Mortal Kombat 2 Reference In The Last Of Us Remake

by Roy Arkon on Sep 7, 2022 :: 1
The Mortal Kombat series has been full of references and Easter Eggs over the years, both from it's own series and other series as well. This however is one of the cases of another series making a reference to MK.

In The Last of Us Remake, as shown by the Naughty Dog Central Twitter page, there is a shot in which a Mortal Kombat II poster can be seen on the wall. This shot is taken from a cutscene in the Left Behind DLC update for the game.

Keep in mind that this is only seen in the remake, but not in the original game.

A fun fact, one of Naughty Dog's very first games was a fighting game called Way of the Warrior, which was a glorified MK clone, which obviously flopped. Naughty Dog are clearly fans of MK, and perhaps in the spirit of the upcoming Mortal Kombat 30th anniversary, they felt it was the right time to pay homage to the iconic fighting game genre. And it surely is an awesome one at that.

More MK History Stories From Ed Boon: Sonya, Jax, Stryker and Tanya

by Roy Arkon on Aug 22, 2022 :: 2
The hype for the Mortal Kombat 30th anniversary continues, as Ed Boon has shared yet another story around the first game in the series, Mortal Kombat 1, this time focusing on the creation of the leg grabbing, death kissing Special Forces kombatant, Sonya Blade, and her iconic Leg Grab special move.

During the video you will see the character select screen of an early build of the original Mortal Kombat 1 that has never been seen before:

Now have a look at the video itself:
Boon than goes on to mention how they were all excited to see the Leg Grab being used in the original 1995 Mortal Kombat movie, indicating it's status as one of the most iconic moves in the history of the franchise.
As Boon previously mentioned the kombat cop Kurtis Stryker, he also goes on to tell how this all led to the creation of both Stryker and the pounding and grabbing powerhouse of the Special Forces, Jackson "Jax" Briggs.
And finally, Boon reveal something pretty shocking, that both Sonya Blade and the yellow female Ninja, Tanya, are actually named after Boon's sisters.
If and when Ed Boon decides to share even more stories leading to the MK 30th anniversary, we will surely be ready to cover the news about them, so stay tuned.
