Did Injustice 2 Have Brutalities?

by Roy Arkon on Mar 2, 2022 :: 6
As you know, Mortal Kombat XL reintroduced the Brutalities as mid-match condition-based Finishers, rather than the long combo-based ones that they were in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy, and then they were brought back in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. However, did you know that Injustice 2 also had Brutalities, or at least they were planned to be included there?

As discovered by a YouTuber named Ermaccer, IJ2 had a few, hidden and scrapped Brutalities for 3 characters: Aquaman, Supergirl and Superman, all whom were included in the roster for the IJ2 beta, which means that these were originally planned to be in the game, but then the whole idea was scrapped before the game's release, and these Brutalities were remain hidden in the game's files all along.

As you can see in the video below, Aquaman's Brutality is just leftovers of it that only include Aquaman's winning pose and the opponent's final defeat animation. Supergirl's Brutality, while also remain in leftovers form, can be "manually" billed together again, as it is clear that the opponent's final defeat animation of that Brutality, in which the opponent remains stuck with his/her head and torso in the ground, is supposed to be attached to Supergirl's throw, in which Supergirl throw the opponent high into the sky, causing them to land on the ground, headfirst. And finally, we have Superman's Brutality, which is the most complete one, with the opponent, or at least Deadshot (as he is the one shown in the video), having reaction voice to it. In this Brutality, Superman shoots the opponent 3 times with his Heat Vision, causing the opponent to fall to the ground, seemingly killing the opponent.

As shown with both Brutalities from Superman and Supergirl, it's very clear that these Brutalities were planned to look like the Heroic Brutalities from Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe, as they are indeed Brutal, but not necessarily fatal like the Mortal Kombat Fatalities or Brutalities. It will be interesting to know why these Brutalities were scrapped from the final game, as the idea of IJ2 having this feature is a pretty big deal. In the words of Atom from IJ2: "What a remarkable discovery"! :mrgreen:

All we can do now is wait and see if NetherRealm Studios and/or WB Games ever tell us the answer to this question.

Check out the video from Ermaccer right here, enjoy.

Interview With Ed Boon: Injustice 3 Officially Deconfirmed

by Roy Arkon on Feb 25, 2022 :: 0
As his Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) Hall of Fame induction is approaching, Game Informer has conducted an interview with Ed Boon. In this Interview, Boon talks about how he got into the gaming industry, his time working on pinball machines, his work on the Mortal Kombat games and much more.

At the end of the interview, while not saying it directly, Boon essentially deconfirmed Injustice 3 as the next game being developed by NetherRealm Studios, as the pattern of Mortal Kombat and Injustice games has been broken. And while Boon didn't confirm what the next game is going to be, he said that once it is announced, we all understand why it will be just that.

"I can say that for 10 years, we were releasing Mortal Kombat and Injustice, Mortal Kombat and Injustice. When we broke that pattern, there was a lot of speculation of what we would be doing next. I can tell you there was a reason for it, and when we announce our next game, it’ll make a lot more sense. At this point, I’ll get in a lot of trouble if I say anything more".

Mortal Kombat Trilogy Remake Petition Nearing 25K: Images, Videos And Story Mode

by Gambid on Jan 7, 2022 :: 15
At the beginning of December last year, we informed you about the currently ongoing petition, started by the guys from Eyeballistic Games in an attempt to convince Warner Bros. Games to green-lit their project for a Mortal Kombat Trilogy Remake. The studio has already tried multiple times in the recent years and failed to get the project going and hopes to achieve this with some help from the Mortal Kombat community.

In the meantime the petition has been signed by almost 22 000 people and its next milestone is the 25 000 mark. This is still pretty far from the goal of the studio of getting 100K signatures but it sure proves that reaching this goal is possible. Recently the petition caught the eye of websites such as Game Informer and Game Rant giving the project a much needed exposure.

On Twitter Eyeballistic Games CEO Joe Tresca and others have been posting mock up images and videos in an attempt to showcase the studios' vision for the remake and to get the fans excited. So let's have a look at what is new.

Let's begin with some screenshots that show the incredible models of Scorpion, Baraka, Sektor and Cyrax on two of the classic Mortal Kombat stages, The Church and The Pit 2:

And while we are talking about the character models here is the Baraka one up close and also an early version of Shang Tsung from several years ago:

Part of the initial pitch for the remake was a Story Mode in a style similar to of what we are currently seeing in fighting games like Power Rangers: Battle For the Grid. Here are two pictures:

Before we move on to the videos, here are also some assets from the classic Graveyard arena that appeared in Mortal Kombat 3 and was even used to let the fans know that Johnny Cage has passed away by putting his name on one of the grave stones.

Now, if you want to see all this in motion, here are two videos showing the glory of the designs. Have a look and of course keep in mind that these are just for the purpose of showcasing the design and ideas.
There is a lot to get you excited here and we as a Mortal Kombat fan-site that has been the home of countless amazing fan creations over the years see a true potential. If you do as well, we ask you to support the guys from Eyeballistic Games by signing their petition and by spreading the word to your friends over social media.
