Kommunity: Mortal Kombat II Invades Doom - Sort Of

05/22/2013 :: Posted at 07:13 PM by Mick-Lucifer
Modders Insert Classic Fighter into Classic FPS!

With Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition officially making the leap to PC [full story], we've got a few things to look forward to. Online competitive play for the PC platform is obviously one of them, but then there's the inevitable meddling of the mod community, which is sure to throw up some interesting fan-made inspirations.

Last week, Kotaku brought our attentions to the work of one such modder: redield21. His achievement? Inserting a playable SNES version of Mortal Kombat II into Doom!

2013 is, of course, the twentieth anniversary of the legendary Mortal Kombat sequel. Fondly remembered for upping the ante of the first game, it formally introduced characters like Shao Kahn, Kitana & Baraka, whilst expanding the scope and style of the first digitized martial arts fighter. For many, MKII remains one of the high points in the twenty-plus year expanse of the franchise.

Why put MKII in Doom? Why the hell not?! Released shortly after the MK sequel; Doom tapped into a similar early nineties sensibility, pitting gun-wielding man against merciless menace from Hell. Okay, there were far fewer colour-coded ninjas pursuing supernatural vendettas, but it's all part of the same glorious retro melting pot.

In fact, this vague video game association of popular genres resulted in an official mash-up when Raiden was made a playable character in 2005's Unreal Championship 2 [read more]!

Mortal Kombat: Komple Edition arrives via digital-first release in July, before going retail in August [full story]. Mortal Kombat II is already there, released as part of the Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection in 2012.
