Unless you’ve been living under a particularly large rock the last few days, you’re undoubtedly already very familiar with the newly unveiled Mortal Kombat X. What you might not know is how developer NetherRealm Studios is planning on mixing the formula up with the latest game by introducing exciting new features that will have a monumental impact on how it plays. One of the more intriguing new features is the addition of fighter variations.
Each fighter will have three different variations that each dramatically changes their abilities and how they fight. For example, anyone who plans on stepping into the iconic boots of Scorpion will have Ninjutsu, Hellfire and Inferno to choose from.
On top of that, Mortal Kombat X will feature numerous new fighters, a few of which were even revealed in the gameplay footage that debuted on Monday night. Most are still under wraps, but we do have confirmation that the winged woman, giant, and the little guy who’s seen riding him in Monday’s footage are known as D’Vorah, Torr, and Ferra, respectively.
You can see the character selection screen and fighter variations in the video below. They also reveal another newcomer in it: Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade’s daughter, Cassie Cage.
Mortal Kombat X releases in 2015 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
