Last week we were shown a trailer of the newest Mortal Kombat game. This week’s E3 gives a glimpse at how the game will play, two stages and three newcomers.
As the trailer shows the three newcomers appear to be a big guy and his little buddy (They remind me of Chang and Choi From King of Fighters) along with an insect woman and a green guy with a crimson red sword. They all look pretty neat as far as I’m concerned. Oh and the poster ninjas are there too with Sub-Zero being the punching bag as usual. They also added interactables from Injustice to the game. Of course hardcore fighting game fans can turn it off if they want to but I care very little for the online scene. Other than that the core features from MK9 remain intact. Perhaps some new features will be introduced in good time.
Anyway it’s looking pretty good so far and I eagerly anticipate more of the roster being revealed. I heard Ermac would also be returning. He’s badass. However, after the events of MK9 I really wonder who else would be returning. I know that Shinnok will at least be one of, if not, the main antagonist along with Quan Chi. There’s also Raiden, Johnny Cage, Sonya, Mileena, Baraka, Sheeva, Kano. Maybe the three DLC characters (excluding Freddy Krueger) will have bigger roles in the story since it’ll take place right after MK9’s.
MK X is scheduled for a 2015 release on PC and most consoles apart from Nintendo ones.
