It was hard to believe anything this weekend as it was the April Fools' Day, which seems to be somewhat of a favourite day on the internet that all companies want in on. April 1 was also the day that Ed Boon decided to share an old name he (and probably the Mortal Kombat co-creator John Tobias) once considered for Mortal Kombat.

It turns out on of the titles they played with before settling was Kumite. While Kumite is a good name (karate related) that is fairly frequently used for fighting tournaments and so on, we're very glad they thought about this a bit longer. It's hard to imagine Mortal Kombat today without "Combat", and pretty much every other word with C, spelled with a K - or what do you think?

REVIEW. Written by Jonas Mäki

"It's a fine version of the game. Sadly, the controller options the Switch provides aren't great."
