Galloping Ghost Arcade to Host Kombat Kon Weekend

This weekend Chicago's famed Galloping Ghost Arcade will play host to a massive celebration of the Mortal Kombat franchise with two days of non-stop Kombat Kon!

The weekend festivities will feature a who's who of the klassic arcade game production, from co-creator John Tobias to the actors and staff who helped make the magic! Fans can collect autographs, take photos, or even have breakfast with the krew! The event also boasts arcade and console tournaments for the original trilogy and Mortal Kombat X!

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!
