During a week where the overarching theme was Xbox 360 and Playstation3 games making their way to the Wii U, it was kind of refreshing to talk about a Nintendo Wii game being ported to the Playstation 3.

Thankfully, developer NetherRealm Studios embraced the series’ golden age and made some great choices in recreating a classic gameplay and [...]
