Balance patch petition for Mortal Kombat 9 picks up over 800 signatures

Balance patch petition for Mortal Kombat 9 picks up over 800 signatures A balance patch and general update petition for Mortal Kombat 9 has picked up over 800 signatures to date.

The petition, started by Webster Snow Jr, is asking NetherRealm Studios to revisit Mortal Kombat 9 and update things like the overall game balance, net code, universal system mechanics and more.

NRS made numerous changes to MK9 when it was first released, and even came under fire by some members of the community for patching the game too often. The last time NRS updated the game was in 2011 though, and while it has been a popular title in the tournament scene, it's dropped off in attendance numbers from what it once was.

Their goal with the petition is to get up to 20,000 signatures, so they're still a ways off, but if you hit the jump you you'll see more details on what they're hoping to change if there's a new version.

- Overall character balance to be fixed and updated (example: buffing weaker characters and adjusting attacks/special moves the stronger characters have. We also are asking that Netherrealm Studios reach out to players in the competitive scene for advance suggestions on final character balancing).

HD version of Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection was in the works, but Warner Bros. cancelled it

Back when Warner Bros. acquired Midway, and before they became NetherRealm Studios, there was an interesting project in the works, Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection HD. Featuring redone graphics and models, this product was cancelled, with Warner Bros. instead opting for straight ports of the original games that became the non-HD Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection.

This all took place before the Mortal Kombat 9 reboot was released, and development was going to be handled by Other Ocean Interactive.

Some pieces of artwork were released though, by Jeremy Kohar, showing what a few of the new graphics would have looked like, including Mileena's new face model, and animal forms for Liu Kang, Stryker and Cyrax.

Since that time, a fan-man HD version of the original Mortal Kombat has been in the works, but as it's a community project, it's not officially sanctioned by NRS.
