Earlier this month, Shacknews went to Summer Game Fest to try out a handful of upcoming titles. Among them was Mortal Kombat 1, the latest reset for the long-running fighting franchise. One of the more interesting new gimmicks involved the addition of Kameo Fighters, something we were eager to ask MK1 Lead Designer Derek Kirtzic more about.
Kirtzic talks about the introduction of Kameo Fighters, which are secondary characters that fight alongside a player's main fighter. He talks about the myriad of gameplay possibilities that a Kameo Fighter opens up, as well as how they'll help lead to more exciting battles going forward. We also made sure to ask about what led to Kameo Fighters ultimately replacing the variation system that had been in use since Mortal Kombat X, as well as what possibilities the Kameo Fighter system opens up, specifically in regard to seldom-seen MK characters and even potential Injustice cameos from the DC Universe.
We had ample time to try out Mortal Kombat 1. Those interested in learning more about can read up on our Summer Game Fest preview. For more videos like this one, be sure to check out Shacknews and Shacknews Interviews on YouTube.
