1Up.Com Previewby Gambid on Jan 31, 2005 :: 3
1Up.com now have their preview of Mortal Kombat: Deception with an exclusive screenshots. From the article.
For the first time since Mortal Kombat sequels stopped having numbers attached to them, Deception on GameCube includes four-armed beast Goro and notorious boss Shao Kahn as playable characters. Even better, both characters are selectable right from the beginning, so players won't have to spend long amounts of time with the game before they get to try out the new additions.
Another change to the character selection is that six of the characters that are by default locked away on the PS2 and Xbox versions are now available for play right from the beginning, so Noob Smoke and Havik fans won't have to unlock those characters to use them. While unlocking players through the Konquest Mode on PS2 and Xbox presented a fun experience, it also presented quite a challenge for players who wanted to unlock characters as quickly as possible, as it was a slow process, so the new character select screen presents a more accessible roster from the get-go.

Mortal Kombat Goes Plug-and-Playby Gambid on Jan 14, 2005 :: 7
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.
