IGN has just posted a story in which they give a preview of one of Jakks Pacific's upcoming additions to its TV Games lineup. This particular TV Games unit has only one game on it, but it is a heftier game than most other TV Games: the original Mortal Kombat! From the article:
Mortal Kombat TV Games will be a self-contained unit based on the original arcade game's upright control panel in a control-pad form. This battery-powered device simply plugs into any TV or VCR with video/audio inputs, offering an accurate version of the original 1990 arcade hit Mortal Kombat without the need for a gaming console.

Two of these units can be linked together for one-on-one fights, and the internal memory chip will record high score standings, just like the original arcade unit. Jakks Pacific promises that the version of
Mortal Kombat in this controller will be completely unedited, featuring the same blood and fatalities the series is known for
The article also has an image of the controller; the color scheme of the controller matches the red, yellow, and orange look of the original Mortal Kombat arcade machine. A release date has not been set yet, but the article does state that the currently planned price is $19.99. As we learn more about this controller, we'll be sure to post it here!
