One month to the day after Midway first announced their new series of podcasts, they have finally released the first MKast recording! The podcast, recorded by senior producer Hans Lo and associate producer Hector Sanchez, discusses fan reaction to the game, answers questions concerning the game, and makes a few new revealations about the game. The podcast was presumably originally meant to be released after the GameTrailers show, as at least one bit of information was released that was mentioned as being revealed on that show. Among the tidbits discussed were...

  • New characters are set to be announced every couple of weeks via different distribution channels.
  • Close-combat will be almost like a "boxing match", where blows will be handled in a "rock/paper/scissors" manner.
  • There are clues about the game not discovered yet, not only on the official website, but also on Ed Boon's website.
  • The MK characters are "true to MK", but the game itself is not part of current canon including Mortal Kombat: Deception and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. If anything, it could be considered an "alternate universe".
  • The two characters set to make their first official appearances in the GameTrailers show are Catwoman and Shang Tsung.

While the podcast is available on the official game website, we are also making it available for download here via the following link.
