Ever since Mortal Kombat 4 was released on PC back in 1997, all Mortal Kombat titles that followed have been console exclusive, so it is normal to expect that the next title in the MK saga will be too. Right?

Not according to Epic. A list of Unreal Engine 3 powered games on Epic's website revealed a game called Mortal Kombat 8 which will hit Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 as well as PC. Since the game is being developed by Unreal Engine 3, it is not that farfetched to expect it to run on the engine's main platform. Still, this can easily turn up to be an error on Epic's behalf.

Although i never really got into the newer mk's, hated the moves/combo system compared to mk 1-4, it would be nice if some fighting game came out for the pc.

I truly hope it's right. I would love to see a return of any fighting games to the PC. I couldn’t imagine what a full fledged PC based fighter would play like with today’s hardware and graphics.

I'm salivating at the thought - I used to be so hooked on Mortal Kombat.

My brother and I was hooked on MK1-Trilogy but after it went 3D it lost the umph. Didn't know they were making a new one, hopefully it does find its way to the PC.

QFT.

If they can somehow manage to make the series not suck ass again, I'll be happy. Otherwise I don't care unless it prompts other developers to release fighting games for PC.

Hmm...Mortal Kombat 2 was good but the third one sucked and I never bothered even looking at the ones after that one. I knew they had a 4 but had no idea there were a 5 6 and 7, let alone an 8 coming.

Mortal Kombat now comes with 146 playable characters (sarcasm)

Be real. It comes with 12, you have to purchase the other 134 over Xbox Live, even if you are playing on the PS3 or PC for 10 bucks a character.

If it would come to PC, it would probably come under the Windows Live banner and people would just complain about it anyway.

MK1-3 are actually pretty good... but personally, 2 is best in the series. 4 is crap, and on PC, it's EVEN more crap (its not arcade perfect port). So that's when I lost interest in MK.

Hopefully MK8 brings back the root...

I still love MK, but as a 2D game, not those started with MK4

Up to MK 4 they were good. The last one I actualy liked more than any of the previous 3d ones. One big issue though they need to address. Everyone being able to do the same fatalities causes the game to lose some of it's character. If they give back the uniques fatalities to everyone I'll give it a shot.

Yeah I agree with most of the sentiment in this thread. The 2d Mortal Kombats were the best. It would be really cool if someone remade # 1 with awesome 2d high res graphics.

You can still play all the MK's and KI's online with MAME :D It rocks. I mostly play Street Fighter games though.

Mortal Kombat on a mouse + kybd would be a joke.
