Evo 2014: 2013 MK World Champion DJT Ready To Defend Title

Mortal Kombat returns to Las Vegas later today in a side tournament already eclipsing some of the official Evo World Championship events!

The unofficial event is the product of the hard work by players turned organizers: Pig of the Hut & Claude Von Stroke! Together they've assembled some of the world's best Mortal Kombat (2011) players for a fourth year of double elimination kombat! With prizes from Mortal Kombat Online [full story], NetherRealm Studios, and a crowd sourced pot in excess of $2000.00 -- the players will have plenty of reasons to take the competition seriously!

2-time Evo World Champion PerfectLegend talked to us about his goals for 2014. Chief among them: his search for redemption against 2013 World Champion - DJT. We went to the defending champion, who confirmed his return, and responded to Perfect Legend's challenge.

I think it will be tight to play [PerfectLegend] again. He beat me Evo 2011, I beat him Evo 2013. It will be interesting. I feel confident that I will win. We run into each other like any top player would think. I think me and Perfect Legend would make a good Grand Final for MK.

A lot of our community doesn't play MK seriously anymore, but I will try and play my best. I still got to defend my title! I definitely want to get at least Top 8 so I can one of those MKX shirts. So GDLK!

I definitely have a good chance at winnin,g because all I need is the net and the dream!! Also: I can't wait till MKX, bro!

Evo 2014: Mortal Kombat Evo Side-Tournament Details

It was with noted disappointment that we learned in February Mortal Kombat (2011) would miss out on a fourth consecutive year at the Evo World Championships. Fortunately, the June reveal of sequel Mortal Kombat X has provided a shot of adrenaline into the flagging scene: inspiring a grass roots campaign that will gather some of the world's top players for a special side tournament at the Las Vegas major!

We Are Many! The Other Bernard Beneteau Ermac Concept Art

Bernard Beneteau wasn't necessarily a name on most fans' lips -- but he made waves recently when his Ermac "fan-art" was mistaken for a Mortal Kombat X leak (re)tweeted by Ed Boon [full story].

As reported; the work was something the professional artist knocked together in his "spare time". A testament to the talents of his vocation - but not surprising with all things considered. He has, after all, served as NetherRealm Studios' Senior Character Artist on: Mortal Kombat, Injustice: Gods Among Us and the 2008 crossover of the two: Mortal Kombat Versus DC Universe.

With that in mind: it won't shock you to know you've seen his work before! In case you haven't - we're featuring his other Ermac Concept Art!

Speculation: Will the Dead Rise in Mortal Kombat X?

The unveiling of Mortal Kombat X at this year's E3 revealed key details about its basic premise and new character line-up. We know the story takes place over a twenty-five year span - jumping forward from the aftermath of Mortal Kombat (2011), to the far flung future of a new generation.

MK2011 left many of the franchise icons deceased and under the control of Netherrealm necromancer: Quan Chi. We know to expect one or two grizzled veterans fighting into the future, but in an interview with vgBR.com, Art Director Steve Beran made one of the few direct connections between fan-favourite returns and the dead fighters.

Mortal Kombat Resurgence - New Game Stimulates Sales

With the reveal of the first trailer for the next game - Mortal Kombat was thrust back into the spotlight! Mortal Kombat X became an instant worldwide trend just one week ahead of its debut at E3 [Expo Preview]. The influx of interest was fuelled by a canny teaser campaign in May, but the pre-release interest hasn't been going all one way!

Gamespot report May PlayStation Network sales saw Mortal Kombat (2011) finish #4 in the top PS3 sellers! It did not chart among the Top 20 in April.

Project Lead Ed Boon revealed the Mortal Kombat X original story will "sort of" be a sequel to the 2011 smash hit, but it's "hard [to] explain." [read more] Register to join the speculation on the Mortal Kombat X forums! Thanks to MKOmmunity User McDaniel for tipping us off!

Kountdown: 10 Returning Kombatants Ready to Kontinue!

After three long years, we've got Mortal Kombat sequel fever! At the behest of series director [Ed Boon]: we're counting down to June 2nd -- that's next Monday (if you haven't noticed)! It's also right around the time we've seen the unveiling of pre-E3 launch trailers for Mortal Kombat (2010) & Injustice: Gods Among Us (2012)!

Over 80% of the MKOmmunity is convinced the June 2 countdown will fulfil our desires. There are other theories and some new ideas, but with reported leaks and the general timing, we've got good reason to talk MK sequels!

As speculation about sequel content starts to mount; one of the leading queries is exactly which characters will make it back for another go around. By the end of the time distorting Mortal Kombat reboot plot -- a majority of Earthrealm's greatest champions were left for dead in the bowels of Netherealm! Last week, we looked at the Top 10 Replacement Kombatants Ready for a Comeback who could fill that void! This week; the Mortal Kombat Online Kountdown is turning an informed eye toward the survivors who could carry over into a next gen sequel!

With the previous game retelling a simplified and slightly altered version of the original trilogy: all signs are pointing toward a reprisal of the plot from 1997's Mortal Kombat 4. We eagerly anticipate the rise of fallen Elder God Shinnok -- whose evil plan appears to be going very well! Who will help or hinder the villain in this hypothetical sequel? Here are our Top 10 Returning Fighters from Mortal Kombat (2011):
