Mortal Kombat X Rumour Round Up: Predator, Feudal Japan And Microtransactions

It seems like a new Mortal Kombat X rumour seems to land on the news desk every day so here is a quick recap of the totally unconfirmed gossip.

1:The first DLC Skin pack will be themed around Feudal Japan


We have a screenshot, it could be fake, but could real.

2: Mortal Kombat X could have microtransactions

NetherRealm Studios marketing manager Brian Goodman was asked by IGN if the game would feature any in-app purchases. “We are not releasing any details on that yet,” he said, “Nothing to say about microtransactions yet.”

Let’s face it, it’s almost certainly going to have microtransactions, everything does.

3: Alien hunting machine, the Predator, will be available as DLC


Videogamer have a “source” who says this is happening and joining the fang jawed menace will be  Colonel Al Dillon, the CIA agent killed in the original movie played by Carl Weathers.

4: A new character, Erron Black, will join the roster.

In issue #4 of the Mortal Kombat X companion comic a gunslinger named Erron Black is seen standing next to D’vorah, and Kotak Khan, the latest additions to the game. Black is said to be a deadly warrior and has fought Mileena.

5: Todd Mcfarlane’s Spawn may also be a playable character.

“[Netherealm] have access to be able to use the character in a couple of their games, if they want to,” McFarlane said. “Again, it’s up to their discretion. I gave them a window of time, so I’ll just leave it to them to do what it is that they want. Eventually, they’ll phone me and they’ll go, ‘Hey, we want to use him here. Is that OK?’ Well, technically, it’s OK because we’ve already said yes. They just are letting us know.”

Ed Boon has been typically cryptic and feigned ignorance at the deal.

6: There was a typo in the original Mortal Kombat design document

It has recently come to light that there was a translation error in the original Mortal Kombat design blueprints and that is to be rectified in MKX. The typo is in to regard to the fatalities, which are introduced with a booming voice shouting “Finish him!”.

In fact this was a musical direction, not a line of script. Each fatality was meant to be accompanied by Jeesus, luona armopöydän (Jesus at the seat of grace), a Finnish Hymn.

Note: I may have made this one up.
