Mortal Kombat 4

Test your might!

The late 90s marked the end of one era — and the beginning of a new one — in many areas of the gaming industry. The fighting game genre was no exception, with Capcom teaming up with Arika to produce the 3D Street Fighter EX series, and Midway doing the same with Mortal Kombat 4.

We get to see elements of this shift in design in today’s behind the scenes video from NeoGamer, which features not only some of the motion capture technology used in the creation of the game, but also the heavy promotional machine behind it. Their tour — which brought the game across cities in North America — was similar in many ways to the location tests in Japan.  Given the amount of distance needed to travel the US for such a test, it shows the drastic change between the modern era of gaming and the older titles’ development cycles.
