Motion Kombat

For those concerned about Wii's ability to offer brutal, soulless acts of violence, it's exciting news to hear that Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is heading to the tiny console sometime during the first quarter of 2007. Publisher Midway made the announcement today (okay, technically tomorrow, but we got it early and exclusively for being so"kombative")along with several other tidbits about the PS2 Premium Pack, which you can read about righthere.

The first thing we want to know is, will Nintendo still want pictures of people enjoying Armageddon spliced into all the screenshots like so many games already do? The idea of seeing a 12-year-old kid miming the moves needed to tear someone's spine out and hold it overhead in a gleeful fashion, blood sprinkling down over his not-innocent-anymore face, is one we refuse to let go.
