Mortal Kombat X reveals new characters and gruesome gameplay


During the Sony E3 Conference, NetherRealm Studios showed off the first gameplay video of Mortal Kombat X, revealing new fighters, dynamic (yet gruesome) gameplay with X-rays and fatalities of course!

Announced only a few days before E3, Mortal Kombat X plans to make the game more dynamic and cinematic with interactable stages and objects, also introducing character variants, letting you choose different versions of the same character. Each variant having a change in appearance as well as gameplay style and move-set.

One of the new characters looks to be a Human/Bug-like ladywith wings, and hidden limbs, and fireflies flying around her. She uses these limbs to impale opponents, and can throw balls of bugs at them too….disgusting. Whereas the other looks to be a duo, a hulking brute with a little deadly sidekick riding on his shoulders (Think Gargantuar from PvZ). There was also another fighter in the trailer which could be Hotaru, Havok, or a completely new character.

Mortal Kombat X will release on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2015.

What do you think of these new characters? Do they fit the MK universe?
