Discussing the 2D MK Klassics: Everything from the Original to Rereleases.

Klassic MK Kast Reunite at Galloping Ghost Aracde

If it isn't already: Chicago's Galloping Ghost Arcade is on the fast track to becoming a mecca to Mortal Kombat fans!

Its proximity to the traditional base of operations for today's NetherRealm Studios makes it a natural home away from home for the klassic fighting series. GGA boasts a comprehensive working collection of now klassic Mortal Kombat arcade cabinets. Go there on the right day, and you might even come across some of the klassic faces who made them happen!

Last weekend (June 28), the arcade hosted Shang Tsung's Fight Night IV -- a live event that brought together a rogues gallery reunion of actors who appeared in the original digitized games!

The event was open to the public for a marathon 11AM to 2AM session at only the standard admission charge! It was a historic gathering for the cast -- some of whom didn't even appear together in the same game(s)! Continuity wouldn't get in the way of fans taking the opportunity to get autographs, photographs and a rare opportunity to mingle with the fighting game icons!


Mortal Kombat Trilogy: The original kast reunite at GGA! [via Galloping Ghost Productions]

In attendance [pictured above] were: [Back Row]: John Parrish (Jax), Carlos Pesina (Raiden), Kerri Hoskins (MK3 Sonya Blade), Brian Glynn (Shao Kahn), Lia Montelongo (Sindel), Richard Divizio (Kano, Quan Chi, Baraka), Anthony Marquez (Kung Lao, Fujin), Daniel Pesina (OG Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero etc). [Front]: Philip Ahn (MKII Shang Tsung), Sal Divita (Nightwolf, Sektor, Cyrax) & John Vogel (Artist).

The gathering coincides with the 20th anniversary of Mortal Kombat II -- a landmark sequel that continues to loom large as one of the series' greatest successes! The 1993 arcade hit challenged everything the original game had established - ramping up the number of characters, the colors, the moves and the mythology. Much of the modern series owes to this original ground breaking game!

So enduring is the affection held for the digitized era, that it continues to be reprised in different forms. A three-game Arcade Kollection was released in 2011. The subject of the games was the basis of the last game: Mortal Kombat (2011). Attempts by developers and fans alike to recreate Mortal Kombat HD has seen mixed results.

For those who couldn't make it - there has been good documentation!
After making waves through social networks -- Mortal Kombat Online learnt about the event through the likes of series co-creator John Tobias (@therealsaibot) -- the event was streamed live via GGA's Twitch! Galloping Ghost have also shared a massive gallery of photos on the Galloping Ghost Productions Facebook account.

VGEvo were in Chicago to cover the event. They shared their take with videos, including this clip of Daniel Pesina demonstrating the rope dart -- a weapon he helped make famous as the original Scorpion!



Be sure to visit the Galloping Ghost Productions page for more photos and information about Chicago's largest video game arcade! Team GGA will no doubt be one of the teams to keep an eye on at the 2014 Evo World Championships next week - July 11-13. Injustice: Gods Among Us will be there with NetherRealm Studios in the house to watch and maybe more [original story].

Pretty awesome....forgot how gorgeous Kerri Hoskins was. She hasn't lost a bit of it.

It's kind of sad in a way, looking at those pictures, because they're all two decades older, as are we.

I had a chance to go but I had no ride up there.

Meh, Galloping Ghost has these guys come up every so often so it's not a total loss, but it's not gonna happen for a while so...

This.

Also if I'm not mistaken John Parrish has lost a lot of weight since his Jax bio card video.

Wonder why Elizabeth Malecki, Katalin Zamiar, Becky Gable, Eddie Wong and Michael O' Brien couldn't make it, or where they are these days.

I wish I had freaking known about this. Would have made a road trip.

He has. He's looking like Jax again. Also he's aged far less than a lot of them lol.

He lost weight, but he's more ripped than he was when he was Jax.

When I went when it was just Rich, John, Daniel, and Philip (Carlos was supposed to be there but he never made it), Rich gave me and my boyfriend tips on how to be successful in the art industry, and I wanted to give this guy a hug after how depressing he started sounding after all of this fame happened. He now works with trains he says and it sucks. But nonetheless, both he and John has a very hysterical sense of humor, so no more depressing story!

I believe Katalin Zamiar had some issues with the company (then Midway). She was involved in a lawsuit with them if I am not mistaken. Someone could probably fill in the details better than I, but there may still be some bitterness there. I know she has done a few exercise/martial arts videos since then.

A quick googling and her wiki article shows she's really busy these days. I thought the same (lawsuit fallout), but IIRC Philip Ahn was also part of that ordeal, and he showed up. Everyone's got their reasons, I guess, but I'm guessing she just hasn't got the time.

Wow, she has been pretty busy. Yeah, Phillip was part of it. It looks like Malecki was involved in that lawsuit as well.

It's awesome that a lot of the actors from the old games got together for that event. All this nostalgia makes me want to go back to playing some of the older games. It sucks to hear what's going on with Rich, but on the other hand, it's cool that he's trying to keep his spirits up. John Parrish looks almost unrecognizable without the facial hair. It's great that he's back in shape. And yes, Kerri Hoskins and Lia Montelongo are still hot.

So many handsome fellas and beautiful ladies. The original casts of MK have aged amazingly. Wish I look that good in 20 years.

I'm just referring to the stuff that Icebaby mentioned. I know of some other stuff mentioned in one of those On The Blast interviews, but I forgot exactly what it was. Anyway, I'd like to see other footage of the actors playing the game or something.

This is so awesome!! I understand they plan to do this event next year. Looks like I'm gonna have to save me some money to go! That place has all Mk games plus lots more, it's like gaming heaven for any old school gamer like myself!! These type of places are nowhere to be found these days. Anybody here from that area?

I am so jealous of the Illinois natives. Parrish looks built to kill. I am still shocked that Daniel made it there.
