Pac-Man in Classic Mortal Kombat Games

by Gambid on May 23, 2023 :: 0
There are tons of less known Easter eggs in all Mortal Kombat games and since we are still celebrating the franchise's 30th Anniversary, here is one that recently made the rounds on Twitter.

In the original Mortal Kombat 1, in the far right corner of the Palace Gates stage, there are hidden icons of Pac-Man, alongside an icon of the Ghost, also from Pac-Man. The Tweet made by long time community member TotalMK stated that this was John Tobias' idea, according to Ed Boon. The tweet was quickly picked up by Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, who corrected that this was actually John Vogel's idea. Regardless of who's idea it was, it was a cool one.

And it doesn't stop there, as the same Easter egg is present in Mortal Kombat 3 and it's updates on two separate stages. On the street stage in a non visible part of the arena, at the top of the building and in the graveyard arena on one of the stones. Have a look:
What Easter eggs do you know. Tell us in the comments.

Mortal Kombat Sets Yet More Sales Milestones

by Roy Arkon on Oct 12, 2022 :: 0
In July of last year, we reported you on several sales milestone that the Mortal Kombat series has achieved. These news confirmed at the time that Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate has reached 12 million copies sold, also that Mortal Kombat XL is just right above it in sales, as well as that the Mortal Kombat Mobile app has reached 138 million downloads, and overall, the series has sold 73 million copies, at which point it was already the best selling fighting game franchise of all time.

A few days ago, Warner Bros. Games have sent a new press release in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the MK franchise, in which the sales stats have been updated and showcase new millstones. As of right now, MK11U has sold 15 million copies, MK Mobile has massed more than 150 million downloads, and the franchise has sold more than 79 million copies overall, taking it's all time best-selling fighting game franchise status to an even greater height.

While it isn't clear if MKXL still got more copies sold than MK11U or the tides have been turned to the latter's favor, a milestone of 15 million copies sold is unquestionably gigantic, especially considering that the fighting game genre is a very niche genre in general, and shows that MK11U is in an amazing place, over 3 and half years later after release. And regardless what are the sales numbers for MKXL, this game has proven it's success as well and to a insanely high degree.

As we can see, the series is in a fantastic place, and we can all just imagine where NetherRealm Studios/Warner Bros. Games will take the series from here. These are huge milestones indeed, and regardless what the next Mortal Kombat game will bring to the table, the future looks as bright as it possibly be. And if it does look dark to you, it's only because of the violence, blood and gore that only Mortal Kombat can bring in. :mrgreen:

Ed Boon: No New Game Announcement For The MK 30th Anniversary

by Roy Arkon on Oct 5, 2022 :: 0
The 30th anniversary of he Mortal Kombat series is this Saturday, October 8th, 2022. Understandably, many fans were expecting to get a new game announcement this weekend, but Ed Boon came in on Twitter to inform us all that while a celebration is indeed about to take place on that day, it will only focus on the anniversary and the history of the series, and won't included any game announcement whatsoever, and such announcement will take place on another date,
Author's opinion: I'm not surprised at all. As much as it would be awesome to finally see whatever game NetherRealm Studios/Warner Bros. Games were working on for so long, I kept telling myself to not set my expectations to a specific direction. Not level, mind you, because it was obvious that we are gonna get something for the 30th anniversary, and it was confirmed by Ed Boon himself, which is awesome to hear, and we all know that it is gonna be epic and fitting for such occasion. I'm really looking forward to it.
