A new trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat X was dropped earlier today and it gave us our first look at some familiar faces returning in this installment of the long-running fighting franchise.
Kitana, who made her debut all the way back in Mortal Kombat II is of course returning in X with her Steel Fan weapons and a bloody “hands off” approach to fatalities. As well, Kung Lao will be making a return with his signature “razor sharp hat tricks,” and what already appears to be an annoying amount of juggling techniques at his disposal.
Mortal Kombat X is, as the name would imply, the tenth main title in the series (not including some weird off-shoots). While it will of course feature the same insanely bloody Fatalities the series is known for as well as lightning fast fighting, there are some new wrenches being thrown into the established formula. For one, the interactive enviornments from developer NetherRealm Studios’ previous game Injustice: Gods Among Us will be worked into Mortal Kombat X. Every fighter in the game now will also come equipped with three different fighting styles, expanding the already large roster to accommodate every playstyle you can think of.
Mortal Kombat X will be released to PlayStation and Xbox consoles on April 14th, 2015.
