The 2011 release of Mortal Kombat 9 turned out somewhat like a greatest hits version of the series, with a lot of characters and designs from older titles reused. Back in 2008 though, Vincent Proce, who worked at Netherealm Studios at the time, pitched a reboot of the series with a different flavor.


Proce had his own idea for how the series should proceed, and created these concept sketches, with gameplay that would include, "modern multiplayer and dismemberment game design." Check out these new takes on Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Sonya, Raiden and Kano, along with little notes below the images explaining a bit more.

Even though Proce left NetherRealm Studios, his services were called upon to provide concept art for the 2011 Mortal Kombat game. You can find his character designs for the game here, along with some notes.

Also, while we're on the subject of Mortal Kombat 9, Amazon is offering the PS Vita version of the game for free, if you buy the system itself, and they'll also throw in a 4GB memory card.
