Mortal Kombat 11 is dialing up the fatalities in an interesting way. A number of them have slow-motion moments to really let you take in the gruesome action. In an interview with co-creator Ed Boon, we learn that creating those moments was no easy task.
“In this game, a lot of our fatalities end with a slow-mo of bloody explosions. We always described it as, we want the final image to be something that somebody would want to hang on the wall. It’d be a little sick if you did it, but some really cool thing. Getting that slow down, the blood, the technology to create that blood, was very repetitive, very painful, but absolutely paid off. It makes it feel different from the last game. I love the way our Fatalities end with these kind of splash moments. They’re awesome.”
