It's looking really nice.

I was such a fan of MK in the old days, MK3 Ult was my favorite. I liked Deception and DA as well, but it felt weirdly off.

Good to see it going back to its roots with the camera but the gameplay being more deeper and much faster which is great IMO.

I doubt I will buy it considering I am not into fighting games anymore, but with MK never say never with me.

Kung Lao + Sub Zero = awesomeness!

Wow, I really like the character design in this game and the graphics look nice but I'm still worried about gameplay. I wish they'd make a demo.

I still feel somewhat violated that arcade sticks don't work with the XBLA version of UMK3, so I'm glad this is aligning to become the go-to game for modernised classic MK flavour.

Lol, I was thinking the same thing. There's gotta be something about it :D

Gotta say, visually it feels so much better than MK vs DC. Originally, I was afraid they were just going to reuse their old renderer and character art. Thankfully, it looks like they are making some real improvements.

Definitely liking the new looks of the ninjas, cyborgs, and both Mileena & Kitana who all look way more epic than they did in MK vs DC. Also, I've noticed they improved their characters' hair, since Cage had flat hair in the first trailer but now has geometry hair. Now if only they'd take that cheesy tattoo off his chest and just have the "Cage" belt, I think he'd be perfect. :p

Absolutely. HD sharpness and up to date green screen methods. Get some funny industry cameos in there, too, and make some snazztastic costumes. Sooo sold!

Oh but all the ninjas should still be palette swaps. For authencity's sake.

Here you go guys, the making of MK3, I love watching this video.
Just reminds me of the good old days.

Also when the guy in the beginning says "toasty" Ed Boon's laugh is so damn evil LOL

have them still switch to the 3D view when pulling off special moves. I think it would look awesome. Although i dunno if they'd get away with the fatalitys..not unless it was rated 18 anyway - and that means (in theory) less sales.
