Ed Boon, creative director of NetherRealm Studios and all round Twitter tease has confirmed that the next Mortal Kombat game will be called Mortal Kombat X.

A trailer has also been released in which Sub Zero and Scorpion beat each other to death in a snowy scene, whilst Wiz Khalifa raps an track written exclusively for the game, entitled “Can’t Be Stopped.”

“Fueled by next-gen technology, Mortal Kombat X combines unparalleled, cinematic presentation with dynamic gameplay to create an unprecedented Kombat experience,” is the the description on YouTube trailer for the game. 


“Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilise the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios.

“The team has worked hard to make sure Mortal Kombat X delivers everything fans expect along with new characters, new game modes and an all new graphics engine.”

The game will hit PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in 2015. Yes, you read that correctly, it’s on last-gen as well.

  1. MK9 was really good, shall be picking this up next year!

  2. One of my favorite series, played every one, though the last was somewhat tainted by releasing the same week as the infamous psn hack.

  3. Them two look proper hard.

    Reckon I could have ’em though.

  4. Cool trailer, does look rather good!

  5. Nice one, about time a next gen fighter was announced! Hope it has some sort of co-op mode.

    • Not knocking this, but how exactly would a co-op mode work in a one on one fighter?? :S

      • tag team

      • Oh… Sounds awful.

        Sorry, but if I am right in the middle of a fight (& am losing I suppose), would I want to relinquish control to someone else?

        Not on your nelly. ;)

      • why awful? would be cool with a friend

      • Not to be too blunt about it, but I mentioned my reasoning above – If I am losing a fight & tagging is an option, there is no way that someone is taking over from me to either:
        a) take the glory
        b) lose me the fight!

  6. That didn’t look like cyber subzero.

  7. I just can’t get on with Mortal Kombat. The staccato rhythm of the combat just kills it for me. A shame as I love the characters, lore, mechanics etc…
