IGN published the followng article:

January 12, 2005 - Jakks Pacific's TV Games series continues to dominate the toy store shelves, seeing incredible success during the holiday with plug-and-play devices licensed by Atari, Namco, Activision, and even the World Poker Tour. Last year the company revealed a licensing agreement with Midway, and in 2005 the first product out of that deal will come to market: Mortal Kombat.

Mortal Kombat TV Games will be a self-contained unit based on the original arcade game's upright control panel in a control-pad form. This battery-powered device simply plugs into any TV or VCR with video/audio inputs, offering an accurate version of the original 1990 arcade hit Mortal Kombat without the need for a gaming console.

Two of these units can be linked together for one-on-one fights, and the internal memory chip will record high score standings, just like the original arcade unit. Jakks Pacific promises that the version of Mortal Kombat in this controller will be completely unedited, featuring the same blood and fatalities the series is known for.

Mortal Kombat TV Games currently does not have a release date, but it's expected to ship in the first half of this year for $19.99.

It doesn't look like it has blood because look at this pic: <a href='http://media.gear.ign.com/articles/579/579320/img_2541548.html' target='_blank'>http://media.gear.ign.com/articles/579/579...mg_2541548.html</a>

When Scorpion does his Spear there is blood. But not on SNES, it doesn't have blood.

Maybe the blood was about to come out.
