Abobo's Big Adventure, plus Upcoming MK HD Remix with MUGEN

In case you haven't heart, Abobo's Big Adventure is out, and it is one massive piece of eight-bit heaven. It promises to be the "Ultimate Tribute to the NES," and - while true - it is not 100% exclusively the NES console that it pays tribute to. Case in point, Mortal Kombat references (both of which can be seen below):

This game must be played immediately. It is currently the #1 rated game on Newgrounds, and for good reason. So go play it over there now!

In other news, some folks over at the TRMK forum were a tad disappointed about the cancelled Mortal Kombat Arcade HD Kollection. And who can blame them? Rather than mope and complain about it, they decided to do something about it, and put together their own not-for-profit high-definition. Their thread has already reached over 150 pages, and has even caught the eye of the Mortal Kombat development team, who were impressed by what they saw. Check out the thread now.

One of the contributers, calactyte, has created high-def versions of some of the fonts used in the MK1 arcade game. He has graciously agreed to allow them to be posted here. So without further ado:

No release date has been announced, but you can be sure that the Kombat Pavilion will be following this exciting project.
