Mortal Kombat 11 Tops PlayStation April Downloads

It hasn't even been a full month since Mortal Kombat 11 was released into the wild on April 23rd, but that was all the time needed for the time-bending sequel to top the month's PlayStation 4 sales!

Vote for Mortal Kombat Klassics for PlayStation 4 Emulation

Last month, Sony made waves with the announcement of widespread PlayStation 2 emulation coming to the PlayStation 4!

Despite the immense global popularity of the second generation Sony console, players have been unable to bring their games forward to new generations since modifications to the original PS3.

Wired reported several Star Wars games were already available on the PlayStation Store at the time of the news, but a massive library of memorable games remains largely untapped. To aid in the selection process, Sony are monitoring the #ps2ps4 hashtag on Twitter!

PlayStation Software Developer Dave Thach made Sony's observation of the hashtag known earlier this month. For Mortal Kombat fans, this is a prime opportunity to revive a generation of modern klassics: Deadly Alliance, Deception, Armageddon and Shaolin Monks! To do so, join the many already retweeting Mortal Kombat Online [RT below], and tag us in when you tweet your own list!

PlayStation 3 Fight Sticks Compatible with Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat arrives on a new generation of hardware April 14th, built specifically for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One! Don't throw away those old fight sticks just yet, though! The klassics are still in vogue!

As revealed during the Kombat Kast and flaunted by Creative Director Ed Boon on Twitter: PlayStation 3 fight sticks will continue to function with PlayStation 4 version of Mortal Kombat X!

Performance Design Products (PDP) created official fight sticks for the Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition in 2011, released later individually, and again for Klassic Edition [learn more].

Update: It seems the credit must go to Lab Zero Games, from whom NetherRealm Studios has licensed the necessary drivers. The Lab Zero pedigree is built on original members of the Skullgirls development team. The PS4 backwards compatibility driver was reportedly worked on by John Bellomy.

Twisted Metal Mascot a Near Miss for Mortal Kombat

Once regarded an improbable oddity; the fighting game guest character has become an industry standard. The invasion of outside forces remains a controversial topic for hardcore fans of any series: Mortal Kombat has become a seasoned veteran of the crossover concept, accepting fights at home and abroad.

Kombatants were first establishing their crossover credentials as far back as the nineties. Characters like Sub-Zero and Raiden have lodged appearances in various series, including: NBA Jam, Unreal Tournament and The Grid. Scorpion made the latest Kombat crossover earlier this year, appearing as a Jim Lee designed downloadable guest in NetherRealm Studios' superhero fighter: Injustice: Gods Among Us. The ninja from Hell is expected to be among the pack-in content in November's Ultimate Edition.

In 2011, Mortal Kombat took a turn playing host to two well known guest fighters: Freddy Krueger (DLC) and Kratos (PS3 exclusive).

Self-fulfilling prophecy: MKOs Tremor April FoolIn April, Mortal Kombat Online featured classic Mortal Kombat characters who existed in hoaxes and rumor, as well as characters who were nestled deep within the games themselves.
