“Marked for Death” by Flavio Luccisano

This piece of art is from 2019 already, but I thought it deserves its special little article here on Game-Art-HQ. Not only is it a great composition that looks almost like a movie or book cover, but its also something special since it illustrates a big part of the Mortal Kombat lore that changed the always masked Ice Ninja Sub-Zero to an almost different character that was hunted by his former Lin Kuei Ninja Clan comrades after they went through the “Cyber Initiative” and became more or less emotionless Cyborgs.

Sektor & Cyrax were awesome characters back in Mortal Kombat 3 and Smoke, who has been one of the secret and very strong hidden kombatants in Mortal Kombat II all had the command to hunt down and kill Sub-Zero, but he survived of course. I hope that all four characters might return in playable form in Mortal Kombat XII….and that we get a true “HD” Remake of Mortal Kombat 3 maybe. As cool as the gameplay of Mortal Kombat 9 was, I just loved the classic MK gameplay!
