Much of the cast from the original Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II will be present at this year's Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo—better known as C2E2! What is C2E2, you ask? Simply put, it's the biggest gaming/comic/nerd culture convention there is, in the Midwest! In addition to Mortal Kombat, there are many other video games as well as movies, television shows, comics, and other franchises that will be represented at the con. The convention will run from Friday, March 22, to Sunday, March 24.

The MK cast that is scheduled to appear includes Daniel Pesina, Elizabeth Malecki, John Parrish, Katalin Zamiar, Philip Ahn, Richard Divizio, and Tony Marquez. Their schedule has also been listed:

  • TeamUp - Mortal Kombat Photo Op: Fri, Mar 22, 2019 at 6:00 PM - TBD
  • TeamUp - Mortal Kombat Photo Op: Sat, Mar 23, 2019 at 2:30 PM - TBD
  • Kombat Legends - The Kast of Mortal Kombat 1 & 2: Sat, Mar 23, 2019 at 5:15 PM - 6:15 PM
  • TeamUp - Mortal Kombat Photo Op: Sun, Mar 24, 2019 at 4:00 PM - TBD

On a somewhat-related note, another classic Midway arcade game will also have its own convention the day before C2E2 gets started: On Thursday, March 21, JamCon 2019 is kicking off! The event will take place at Hoyt's in the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront hotel. Tim Kitzrow, the famous voice behind NBA Jam and other huge fan favorite sports titles such as NFL Blitz, NHL Hitz, and the newly released Mutant Football League will be on hand to sign autographs, take pictures and hang out with you! The event will also host a tournament that will feature a one of a kind NBA Jam Trophy that goes to the winner, and a raffle for another NBA Jam prize at the bar! You get one raffle ticket per food or beverage item you purchase entered into the drawing. Raffle tickets are ONLY given to those who have paid for a ticket to attend the event. Due to limited space, the event has two separate ticket times you can purchase for. The first is slot from 2pm to 4pm, and the other slot is from 4pm to 6pm. Ticketed times do not affect those competing in the tournament. Rules for the tournament are simple: it’s a 1v1 tournament, and no cheat codes or hidden characters are allowed. Only 100 tickets are available to buy, so get them while you still can since space is limited!

Mortal Kombat Online will be present at both events! C2E2 tickets can be purchased here, and JamCon tickets can be purchased here. Planning on attending these events yourself? Considering it?
