Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance PlayStation®2, XboxTM and Nintendo GameCubeTM Key Features:
Deadly Alliance TV Commercial
Midway has released the TV Commercial from MK Deadly Alliance available for download at thir website. This one mixes the cinematic spot we saw (Scorpion VS Quan Chi fight) with some gameplay scenes (which altough brief, look full of action) in 15 seconds. It's only 1MB download which makes a worth view to the game. Click here to download.
UPDATE: The commercial will be showing on TV just before Fatality Friday (November 22). Notice, that being this an M-rated game, you'll most likely watch it during programs that normaly show M-rated game commercials. Maybe it's not the only TV commercial we'll watch.

At IGN PS2, they've grabbed their almost done copy of MK: Deadly Alliance and have in deph talk about the content in this game. For that, they're answering three of the most important questions we have: How is the fighting system? What is Konquest Mode? And what type of secrets are there? You sure won't miss a thing from what they have to say about these. The only problem is that you'll feel you can't wait a day longer to play this damn videogame! Click here and run your own risk.
