Mortal Kombat X Character Reveals!


‘Snake’ returns to MK.

This week has been pretty exciting for fans of the Mortal Kombat series, with not one but two character revealed via streams and new trailers. The first new fighter is Reptile, MK’s original secret fighter whose latest incarnation has him more lizard-like and beastly than ever before, sporting an even more inhuman look and bony armor. He’s still got his trademark tricks like the acid spit and the force ball, and he’s not afraid to use them.


We are Legion! Ermac is back.

The second character revealed (and just today!) is Ermac. A collection of souls given physical form, this telekinetic ninja was first seen as intriguing new concept art some time ago (which might show up as his alternate looks) but now has been fully shown off. A lot of gamers called it that Ermac would be the second reveal, and they called it right.


Bits of the new narrative may be culled from this video.

Maximillian on Youtube also posted a vid above showing off the new intros and fatalities, the former giving hints on the ongoing story. So far, we know that the new MK is set 20++ years after the end of the last tournament’s story. The new fighter and conqueror, Kotal Khan, has taken Outworld’s throne, upon which he is/was opposed by Mileena (still unrevealed as a playable or not). Several characters who died in the previous game- such as Kung Lao and Kitana- have returned, though it is still unknown how they escaped from being Quan-chi‘s thralls. It’s all very intriguing, which may lead to yet another awesome story mode in the upcoming MKX. Can’t wait! Mortal Kombat X is set for release this coming April.
