Midway confirms Mortal Kombat 5 for 2002.

05-5-2001 :: Posted at 2:38 PM EST by Scott-Howell
We already reported back in April that Mortal Kombat 5 would be hitting all 3 next generation systems next year. If you still need the word of mouth from Midway here's an excerpt from a recent conference call that you can check out for yourself at Street Fusion until next Wednesday May 9th, 2001. Just fast forward to about 7:30 in the conference to catch the tidbit about Mortal Kombat 5 below:

"...We believe the full impact of our transition strategy would be demonstrated in calendar 2002, when we expect to release over 31 new SKUs for the new generation consoles. We expect to introduce at least 12 Playstation 2, 10 X-Box, and 9 GameCube SKUs in 2002, including a title what we believe could revolutionize again the fighting game genre that it helped create, Mortal Kombat Five."

Will Mortal Kombat 5 still succeed now knowing it will not be released in arcades? Voice out at our message board.
