The next Mortal Kombat is going deep. Not just in the 'show you highly detailed internal organs' kind of way, either. The newly announced Variations feature and other tweaks in Mortal Kombat X are going to give players other layers of options for how they beat each other up.
As previously detailed, players will be able to choose a variation for their Kombatant at the character select screen. Each one makes tweaks to movement, attacks and other aspects of the character in question. When I got my hands on the game at PAX Prime today, I played with variations for several different martial artists.
