For 18 years Mortal Kombat has been delighting twisted youth everywhere. Even though most of that youth has now reached a twisted adulthood, most of those adults still love and enjoy a good fatality. Originally an arcade game created by Ed Boon and John Tobias (TOASTY!), the franchise was eventually picked up by Acclaim Entertainment, and Midway began releasing MK for the home console all the way up until the recent Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe. In 2009, however, the franchise was sold to Warner Bros. who will be releasing the latest game in the series in early 2011.
