No Guts, No Glory: Mortal Kombat X Announced

Mortal Kombat

Venerable Fighting Game Series Gets Tenth Instalment Set For 2015. Mortal Kombat X hits new and old consoles.

Yesterday Netherrealm Studios announced that their flagship franchise, Mortal Kombat, is getting a tenth game some time next year. The brutal and bloody fighter is set to make it to most current and next-gen consoles.

The last outing for the Mortal Kombat franchise was back in 2011 with a reboot and return to the 2D fighting style. Since then the studio has been busy with Injustice: Gods Among Us – proving they have some experience with the next generation of consoles.

The trailer released with the announcement shows series favourites Scorpion and Sub-Zero fighting it out in a snowy forest. It doesn’t show much but a few things are clear:

  • A few typical special moves have made it over
  • X-Ray moves are making a return
  • The fighting style will be similar to Mortal Kombat 9
  • Art has taken a darker tone with more menacing costumes

Without much else to go on it is hard to say whether Mortal Kombat X is something to dread or look forward to. But as one of the most renowned fighting games of all time, I doubt it will struggle too much.
