IGN Pocket scores interview with MK Advance developer
VirtucraftIf anyone is interested IGN Pocket released an interview with the guys over at Virtucraft, developer of Mortal Kombat Advance, about their part in the conversion of UMK3 for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance. Here are some highlights:

IGNpocket: Why did you choose to go with Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 in bringing the series to the handheld? Why not MK Trilogy, or even a version of Mortal Kombat 4?

Brian Beuken: The GBA is essentially a 2D system and we wanted to produce the an amalgam of best of the 2D games. Its not a straight port of UMK3, rather it takes the best bits from Mortal Kombat 1, 2, 3, and Trilogy and crunches them all together.
