See Canceled Mortal Kombat HD Screenshot

"Hi-Res Kombat."


Some time ago, an HD version of the original Mortal Kombat fighting game was in the works, but it was not meant to be. All is not lost, however, as a single image of the game has now emerged, posted on Twitter by Mortal Kombat franchise creator Ed Boon. Take a look at the image below.

There may be a story to tell regarding why the game never happened. "Hi-Res Kombat .... one of these days I'll post an article explaining how the MK HD edition never came to be.....," Boon said.

As Game Informer notes, it's not immediately clear if this is an actual screenshot from the game or rather promotional art or something else.

The latest Mortal Kombat game was Mortal Kombat X, which launched in April 2015. Developer NetherRealm will continue to support the game with new DLC characters in 2016.
