One of the new characters coming to Mortal Kombat X is an amalgam of three man-machine characters from the fighting game franchise’s history. But it turns out that there’s another robot ninja lurking inside that chassis. One who makes things a whole lot cooler.
Out on March 1, Mortal Kombat XL is a new version of last year’s hit fighting game that bundles together the core game and all of the DLC released so far. It’ll include the characters coming with Kombat Pack 2, so it stands to reason that the add-on will be out on or before MKXL’s release date.
The old-school versions of Mortal Kombat were filled with hidden characters, features and in-jokes. You’d only ever see them if you fulfilled certain requirements. The new one has stuff like that, too, but they can be a bit more elusive. Here’s how to trigger a secret showdown in Mortal Kombat X.
“Join the White Lotus” they said. “Align yourself with the godlike defenders of Earthrealm.” So I did, and everybody else decided to be an ice ninja instead. Mortal Kombat X’s Faction War feature makes me sad.
Bizarrely, Mortal Kombat X has a sizable slate of classic Mortal Kombat characters that you can only fight against, not play as, Rain and Baraka foremost among them. Clever players, however, have figured out how to use them in the game’s PC version.
A bunch of new characters are ripping each other’s body parts out in Mortal Kombat X. That’s nothing new in the decades-old fighting series. But, a gay character? That is definitely new.
You want to see, like, 95% of the blood-gushing finishing moves from Mortal Kombat X? Here you go.
The rest of the undead ninja's finishing move is… let's just say you just have to see it.
There's a move at the end of this character reveal that made me wince and go "Ooooh…." Quan Chi, I've always hated you.
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.
There was never any question what the developers of Mortal Kombat were going to use the new consoles' increased processing power for, was there?
Yeah, the way that this video pays homage to the old-school digitized look of the first few Mortal Kombat games is cool. And it’s great that there are nods to signature moments of the latest MK title in there, too. But what really makes this video work is the secret revelation about thunder god Raiden.
A couple of weeks ago, you might've seen Superman kill the Joker in cold blood in the prequel comics that build the backstory for upcoming fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. You could argue that Batman's archenemy had it coming since he's a psychopathic mass murderer. But as the series has continued, The Man of…
You might know that DC Comics has an Injustice comic running which sets up the stage for all the brawling in the upcoming fighting game. The story by writer Tom Taylor and artists Mike Miller and Jheremy Raapack is appearing in digital form first, with print editions following. Check out this excerpt, where Jimmy…
It's become a recurring trope that the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight beat each other up when things go terribly wrong in the DC Universe. The big difference in each of these brawls is the catalyst for the conflicts. As shown in a comic-book prequel releasing tomorrow, the reason for the World's Finest fallout in …
This statue pictured above will be coming with the collector's edition of Injustice: Gods Among Us, the fighting game that pits DC Comics' most popular super heroes against each other. (Don't worry; they fight villains, too.) The sculpture shows just how much the relationships must have deteriorated between the…
Ed Boon, the father of Mortal Kombat has a priority for the DC Comics super-hero fighting game his MK studio is making. He wants to make the backgrounds, the levels, play "as pivotal a role as the characters you chose."
Netherrealm and WBIE proudly stride into Capcom territory—y'know, trying to sell you a game you already own—with the already announced Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition. Hrm.
