New features for Mortal Kombat Wii revealed

New endurance mode and every Mortal Kombat character ever to feature

Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has revealed new details regarding the upcoming Wii version of Mortal Kombat Armageddon.

As well as the awesome-looking motion-activated control system, the Wii version of the brutal fighter will include an endurance mode which "lets the player fight against as many opponents as he can get through with one life bar," Boon revealed to IGN.

"After every five or six opponents, you'll get a little bit of life back so you'll always have a little chance if you reach that next plateau", he explained.

He also revealed that the game features a mighty 64 characters - which includes every character from the MK universe, and a training mode specially designed to help you get the hang of the motion gestures needed to perform special moves.

The Wii version will also boast one exclusive character named Khameleon - a female ninja who first appeared as a secret character in the N64 version of Mortal Kombat Trilogy.

MKA, which was released on Xbox and PS2 in October last year, is due out on Wii later this month.
