New Mortal Kombat Will Be Playable At PAX This Weekend

Ed Boon has confirmed Mortal Kombat 2011 will be shown off at PAX Prime this weekend and promises the franchise will be 'coming back with a vengeance':This is going to be the first time that the public gets to play, and we’re excited about that."

“We have a number of these events, shows and things that we’re planning for. So we do that while at the same time kind of advancing the game forward in general, but our most immediate goal is getting a version ready for PAX."

“And now, we’re coming back with a vengeance. As aggressively as possible…to me personally, I’m confident that the people who play are going to walk away totally psyched to buy this game.”
Boon also commented on how the game is designed to be 'pick up and play' and will appeal to those who aren't too good at the moves and fatality combos (like me). This one will be more about balance:
“I want anybody to be able to throw Scorpion’s spear. I want anybody to make Sub Zero slide through an ice ball. I don’t want to do attacks that only 20 percent of the public have the dexterity to perform. That’s always, to me, a negative."

“But at the same time, we’re cutting up our moves so that there are opportunities within a move that the casual player might not be interested in or might not dig into – certainly immediately – but the hardcore guy can get into."

“Like when you throw Scorpion’s spear, there might be a moment in there, a few frames where they can break out of it or enhance it or put another move in there.”
I'm starting to get a little excited for it, and just to make it worse, a new 'Shadows' trailer was released with some rather cheesy music from Disturbed included. It fits, but it's just so... well, y'know...
