UMK3 set to pummel XBLA
Long-awaited arrival of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 for Microsoft's Xbox 360 downloadable game service set for November.
A decade and change ago there were two fighting franchises duking it out for supremacy at the arcades: Midway's Mortal Kombat and Capcom's Street Fighter. Earlier this year, it was revealed that installments from both series would be released for the Xbox 360 on Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade service.
In August, Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting was released after fans were made to endure multiple delays. Meanwhile, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 has yet to be delayed, possibly because it has never had a release date any more exact than "by the end of the year." With 2006 heading into the home stretch, Midway has finally narrowed that window down a bit.
Midway today announced that Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 would be available in November, completing a four-hit combo that also consists of the PlayStation 2 and Xbox editions of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (being released this week and next, respectively) and the series' PSP debut, Mortal Kombat: Unchained. Midway has not announced a price for the game yet.
