Here’s a Bunch of Mortal Kombat X Gameplay Hosted by Ed Boon!
The tenth Mortal Kombat (which is pronounced “Mortal Kombat Ecks“ because, hey, different) carved out a bloody chunk of attention at E3 with its gameplay debut. The game looks phenomenal. It builds on the MK9’s sensibilities while incorporating cool features expanded in NetherRealm’s other baby, Injustice.
Series ko-kreator Ed Boon presents a fantastically gruesome demo reel featuring old and new characters beating each other senseless. Some juicy details let loose as well, including:
- MKX is a direct sequel to 2011’s reboot. Amazingly, its story spans a 25 year cycle.
- Determined not to simply reskin the last game, MKX introduces a significant amount of new characters. One surprise shown: Cassie Cage, the daughter of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage who owns a move-set comprised of both characters’ disciplines.
- Each character has three different combat variations to choose from at the select menu; you’ll gain access to combos and abilities exclusive to each variation.
The Mortal Kombat games have hit a stride like never before, combining its iconic characters and signature bloodshed with stone-solid mechanics. MKX seems dead set on upping the insanity and enjoyment tenfold. I need to get my hands on this.
