Mortal Kombat Theme (Official Theme) What is it?
04/11/2009 12:23 AM EDT
I've heard that, after the release of "Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe", Mortal Kombat now has an OFFICIAL theme. I've strolled the net looking for evidence based on what this theme is. I've found nothing more than peoples YouTube videos of sound extract/samples from the MK vs. DC game.

What IS the official theme? I don't want to see you post some BS sampled youtube video.

I want the official theme that even Ed Boon would admit is "the theme" for the Mortal Kombat series. Just give me the theme it's self, not some 10 min sample of different excerpts mixed together.

what is it? =Dfurious

Usually it's the music from the movie that is mostly considered the theme song... that's what marching bands play when they have a video game theme.

Just ask the California band, they played Mortal Kombat in their selections.

It's been stated in a news article online that the music from the movies IS NOT the official theme. I don't have the article to show you, but I'm being quite honest when I say it was real and wasn't some random guys blog.

Well, that sucks, I'm sure you're being honest, but I don't believe it. Do you know how many people lie over the internet? That's why.

Here we go!

http://www.music4games.net/Features_Display.aspx?id=301

It's an interview with the artists and quote from one of the answers to the question: "What kind of music styles can we expect to hear in the game?"

Cris Velasco & Sascha Dikiciyan, one mentioning this...
"The DC characters at war with the MK characters is a pretty epic concept and the music needed to be on par with that. We were also able to bring something new to the series. An actual Mortal Kombat theme! This marks the first time out of the eight games that there is an official theme. "

So.... what is it?

The movie theme is not the main theme of the games.

There is no theme for the games. Each game usually uses brand new music, the only song I can think of that showed up more than once is the Courtyard theme (MK3 Street).

You still miss the point, that article is an interview with the composers of the music for Mortal Kombat vs DC and they even said "It's a first for the series".

So is that article complete BS? Were the artists on crack when having the interview? What's the deal...

To be honest I can't even remember any of the music from the game. Very unimpressive.

It's not a theme for the series/franchise, it's a theme for that game specifically. Meaning that music piece will be played at important parts of the story, or at the beginning and end or whatever.

It's like a character having their own theme - the music plays whenever we see the character.

The only SONG that haas appeared in the games in Immortal by Adema, but that was based more on Scorpion than the whole MK universe (seeing as the music video was all about Scorpion).

The movies have no official relationship with the games and the movie theme is by far not the game theme, and never will be! If the games were to have one it would probably be a heavy metal song, not some crappy techno jive from the 90's.

The song "Techno Syndrome" by The Immortals was the theme song for the games first. It appeared in 2 soundtracks (one on CD, on both cassette and CD) released by The Immortals. It also appeared in the Sega CD port of MK1.

The exact song later appeared in the movie, and the soundtrack. A remix of the song was made for Annihilation.

I think it's fair to say that Techno Syndrome is the MK theme song for both the games and the movies.
