Armada’s E3 picks: Mortal Kombat X (2015)

 

Mortal Kombat X – Fatality! And that’s really all I need to say because NetherRealm Studios is heading up MKX, since they did such a stellar job with Mortal Kombat 9 and they informed us that X will have new kharacters, new kombos, and even kustomizable options throughout the game – victory is all but assured for this title. However one very interesting fact had come to light about X, the game starts after MK9 and continues through the story 25 years in the future. Meaning that all the legacy characters of Mortal Kombatdom (that aren’t dead – and even then) have now progressed into unfamiliar and unknown territory. We’re older since we’ve played the first title so why not them. Even some of the new characters are direct spawns of the old ones; like Cassie, child of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade (you knew those two were hooking up). Mortal Kombat X will be a great game, not because it’s a sequel to a great game, but because it will take that rare step in fiction and actually continue the story started all those years ago. That’s doesn’t happen in game series often so it will be a red letter day MK players next year.
