Mortal Kombat X's Ed Boon on Fatality Meetings and Having More New Characters Than Ever - Video Interview
Written Thursday, July 10, 2014 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Mortal Kombat will be reaching its tenth main instalment with Mortal Kombat X next year, but after all that time (over 20 years), is the series running low on ideas? On the basis of our first hands-on with the game during E3, MK is showing no signs of slowing down, wheeling out even more extreme brutality than ever before.
It's the only time we've sat through a game presentation in which a character's face is sliced off and their brain falls out, causing the audience to erupt into rapturous applause. No other game has that same kind of impact as Mortal Kombat. But it's not all about gore. MK X will have more new characters than ever before and it'll be more varied and complex, with three distinct character types to choose from for each kombatant.
Co-creator and Creative Director, Ed Boon reveals all of this and much more in our E3 video interview below. NetherRealm seems to be going big for Mortal Kombat X, and it'll be koming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3 in 2015.
