LONG LIVE MORTAL KOMBAT - ROUND 1: THE FATALITIES AND FANDOM OF THE ARCADE ERA

David L. Craddock, James Rolfe (Foreword), John Tobias (Foreword), Adrian Doan Kim Carames (Illustrator)



 

Long Live MK: Round 1 is divided into four sections, organized according to material that concerns MK1, MKII, MK3 and Ultimate MK3, and MK4. You'll discover the obstacles co-creators Ed Boon and John Tobias faced as they made each game, the ways Midway's culture influenced MK's creative and technical directions, how Acclaim revolutionized video game advertising by going all-in on the multi-million-dollar "Mortal Monday" campaign, learn how actors from the games and films landed their roles, and other crucial events in MK history.
