MORTAL KOMBAT X Scrapped on 360 and PS3
Things just keep getting worse for High Voltage Software. After making a bad start to their conversion run on the latest Mortal Kombat game with a PC version that was riddled with bugs and pretty damned awful, it looks like they won’t be getting the chance to redeem themselves with the versions they were working on for the Xbox 360 and PS3 either.
Warner Brothers has announced that it is pulling the plug on the conversions following a multitude of delays. The games, which were meant to come out alongside every other version of the title, have clearly been hit with plenty of development troubles, with WB stating that they simply can’t get them out and anybody who has pre-ordered will be getting a refund.
While they were diplomatic in their statement in regards to High Voltage, you have to believe that this signals the end for any working relationship the two companies had. Whether High Voltage will be able to make it to the end of 2015 with their reputation intact remains to be seen. Nintendo’s resident foxy pilot has never quite hit the heights he achieved back in the days of the SNES and N64, even though none of the subsequent games have been awful. This game is essentially a reboot, rather than a direct sequel, and will feature the traditional Star Fox gameplay as imagined by the wonderful minds at Platinum Games. If nothing else, that means that you can expect quality and perhaps a touch of quirkiness from this latest in the series, which is also the first to be released in about nine years.
