Midway has finally come clean on its next edition of the long running Mortal Kombat series. The next title in the series is currently set for release on Xbox and PS2 and has is titled, snappily, Mortal Kombat: Deception.
New features include multiple fatalities for each character, along with multi-tiered interactive environments as seen in the Dead Or Alive series. Perhaps the most exciting announcement, however, is the confirmation of online play for both versions.
Characters confirmed for the title thus far include Scorpion, Baraka, Mileena and Sub Zero, though it seems likely that a number of new characters will also be making their debut in the title. Many of the staples of the original MK games have been retained, with the old call of "Finish him!" making an appearance and the promise of finishing moves that sound even more brutal than in previous outings.
Indeed, Midway describes the game as "shocking and evil", though we're assuming the publisher intends that summation positively. More info on this one as we have it.
