Here is the latest coverage for the new Mortal Kombat with a trailer for the King of the Hill game mode.
King of the Hill is designed to give players an old-school arcade experience. As players take part in king of the hill their avatars will be waiting in line for their chance to fight, which will enable everyone in that lobby to boo, cheer and even throw vegetables at the screen as if they were watching the match on television.
Each round two players face off, with the winner staying on as the king of the hill and another player stepping forward to challenge the king. The longer you stay king, the more bragging rights you can claim.
I personally think its a really great concept, it makes the whole fighting experience much more interactive, instead of limiting the experience between two players, you now have a room full of people to interact with as you wait for your turn to prove yourself in the arena.
Don’t forget that Mortal Kombat is slated for store shelves on April 19th, so be sure to reserve your copy if you haven’t done so already.
