Co-creator of Mortal Kombat Ed Boon at NeverRealm Studios says he has been working on getting 3D into Mortal Kombat ‘for a few months now’.
“We’ve been working on stereoscopic 3D, getting the game to work with the layers that makes 3D look so great, and so far the video that we’ve gotten is really impressive,” Boon, one of the co-creators of the fighting game series, told Eurogamer TV in an interview published today.
Speaking in a interview with Eurogamer TV, “It’s a lot more immersive,” said Boon. “You really feel like you’re inside the fight more. With our fighting we have a lot more of a 2D fighting field, but the 3D visuals really complements that a lot.”
At least for the moment though, 3D will be limited to the Playstation 3 when the game hits shelves in 2011.
Among the fun new toys are an X-Ray vision mode that shows you in detail which exact bones you are breaking in your opponents body, and fatalities will be making a reappearance.
Mortal Kombat is due out on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011.
