Removal of the net play feature kinda sucks, but hopefully the extra modes are worth it.

completely G@Y, later release date than ps2 and xbox, no online, almost nobody will pick this game up especially for $50.

Midway is freaking retarded great way to doom your game before its even released (GCN version).

Instead of online it'll get extra stuff, maybe that'll be worth something. Since I don't play online anyway, I think it's worth the tradeoff...

Actually, I had assumed that the next Mortal Kombat game was going to be completely excluded from the Gamecube line-up, so I'm kinda happy to hear this announcement. I was a big fan of Deadly Alliance, and was disheartened when I heard that the next sequel was going to snub Nintendo completely. It's good to know that Midway hasn't COMPLETELY turned its back on Nintendo.

Hm, what control style does MK use, anyway? I seem to recall a 2+2 scheme...
