Does anyone else think touch screens are nothing more than a played out gimmick who's only purpose is extremely shallow minigames?

Sweet, another perfectly fine game ruined by unnecessary touch controls!

Also...did I just see fruit ninja in that trailer? The fuck?

@xite: Overused, but there are situations where touch screens work really well. There are some (very few, but they exist) iOS games that simply wouldn't work with more traditional controls. Some DS games used the touch screen really effectively (your avatar is from one). Other times, it works as a nice accessory to what is otherwise a traditional experience. Modnation on the Vita uses it really well for track creation (and is probably the best implementation of the rear touch panel I've seen).

So I wouldn't say the only purpose is extremely shallow mini games. It's the easiest way to use them, but there have been some really effective uses of the technology on a variety of platforms.

@Addfwyn: You're right. it just seems like so many developers are shoehorning in pointless uses for the touchscreen as demonstrated in this video. Why not just use the hardware to get the best fighting game experience instead of throwing in a bunch of minigames. We'll see what Jeff thinks about it but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Was that the pit from MK4 if you don't put in credits for a continue?

Posted by AjayRaz

wow. that's pretty cool that they're adding in a ton of stuff

I don't know man, that looked like stupid fun and I LOVE IT!

OMG You can play as Shao Khan??? Damn you Ed Boon, you gonna make me buy Vita!!

Posted by forkboy

I really don't think this will be on my shopping list. I can't say I've ever thought "I really need Fruit Ninja in my MK games"

Posted by ckeats

Are people really complaining about added features? Sure, lets hate a game because of optional added features, that actually look hilariously fun.

Posted by RE_Player1

This is a game I will buy digitally. I always want MK with me so I can pop off a few fights.

It seems like a funny little addition, I don't see how it hurts the experience.

You could also see Rain's classic costume as well as an Alt for Kenji in this trailer, which aren't in the Kore game at the moment. I'm sure Ed will add everything into the regular version for free as he has done in the past.

@xite: Except this is a fighting game first and foremost. Those minigames are just that, minigames. Nothing is being lost in this port; it's the exact same game as the console version with a bunch of extras thrown in and all the dlc.

Posted by BlazeHedgehog

I hope that Fruit Ninja clone was cleared with the Half Brick guys. I know a guy who works there!

Posted by Tennmuerti

MK fruit ninja!

Posted by DeF

MK has Fruit Ninjas!

Posted by JTB123

So you can play as Shao Kahn now, that's pretty cool. Hope those new costumes come out for the console, a fighting game can never have too many costumes.

I think it should work for RTSes, but for some reason people don't want those anymore - the genre has been almost entirely replaced with tower defense games. I didn't play the iOS port of Red Alert 3 though, could be that the fidelity is just a lot worse than I think.
Posted by Spoonman671

I don't think I need to play this game again.  Still hope that all updates are mandatory though.

Great trailer.

At :51-:52 I swear to Zeus that's the Steam chat notification sound

Posted by brocool

An extremely exciting game, and this trailer has made it somehow made it boring. The touch controls do not seem like it something I want to use at all, please do better developers!

Ghetto ver. here

This looks like the kind of really dumb shit I can get behind.

Posted by mbkish

This isn't helping your cause, mobile games. If you look and play like every other phone game, why are you priced so much higher? Quality doesn't mean dick when it costs 10x as much if not more.

Posted by Alston2reel

Game looks awesome!

fruit ninja?

Posted by Brnorris

@DeF: FRUITALITY!

Posted by Bummey

This looks very dumb.

You are too young to watch the filth in this video. Go to church instead.

Posted by CrashTanuki

If you didn't know, these are challenges in the second challenge tower that comes with the Vita version of MK and a lot of them incorporate most of the Vita's inputs.

Posted by IndeedCodyBrown

If I had a vita I'd get it.

Posted by Crono

Makes me want a Vita just to have the ability to play this at any given moment

Posted by BD_Mr_Bubbles

If I hadn't already played a ton on the PS3 i'd consider it.

Posted by PimblyCharles

Fighters are not meant to have touch controls

Posted by Redsox44

I'm definitely getting this since I still haven't played it and I love my vita.

Posted by RaidenMitsuru

Pretty cool, will pick up a copy for sure.

Posted by MAD_JIHAD

Look at those graphics! ITS LIKE REAL LIFE!

Posted by ashenozzie

Not onboard with the touchcontrols, but will get this. I assume you can turn that gimmick off

I think quality means everything. I'm only going to shell our $35+ for something I believe will be quality.

I don't need another marketplace for throw-away games that skate on a $1 price tag.

I'm also curious how many phone games look or play like Mortal Kombat.

I dunno, man, these gimmicky touch-screen parts look REAAAALLY iPhone. Granted, they're still attached to a fantastic fighting game, but whew, they're not helping sell any copies.

Can't wait to get this in April.

Honestly...

I was sold until I saw the touch controls. That looks mad annoying. Unsold.

For all we know, it's all optional, like UMvC3's "Touch Mode," so let's wait for some information. As for the mini-games, well, they're mini-games. Not much you can expect.

Touch controls are 100% optional. Most of the touching stuff they were doing is in mini games. Touching stuff in the actual fighting is restricted to performing X-ray moves and fatalities.. BOTH OPTIONAL. Also the mini games is 100% brand new content, no reason to complain about that.

Posted by Gonmog

Well I was already sold.... But this sold me even more so! Awesome!
