“I really admire all of MJB’s work and creativity and his fearlessness in design. The fact that the collaboration project is Mortal Kombat is really full circle to me, it was one of the first games I played on PS2! It’s always been a game in my life that has been there and connected me with friends and family, so it is amazing for me to be a part of this collaboration. My favourite character is Jax Briggs because he has heavy hands and I have combos for days. I feel like this is perfect game to play with your people, also a great ice breaker when meeting people”– FelixThe1st.
