Mortal Kombat X’s biggest new addition (due tomorrow) had its debut trailer, featuring plenty of nasty blade and laser-based gore, but some other cameos killed it in the new trailer. Read on for more info!
Hi all! Dave here. While I’ve resisted the allure of Mortal Kombat X for some time now, I’m afraid I might have to bite the bullet and buy it, thanks to the new trailer above (and the fact that the game’s apparently getting a deep discount on Xbox Live this week). Yes, I knew that the Predator would be a part of NetherRealm’s new fighter, but now that I’m seeing it in action alongside the newly skinned characters it’s going to attempt to de-skin, I’m excited. Namely, the fact that CARL WEATHERS AS JAX IS IN MORTAL KOMBAT X. Look!
That’s not me making a very obvious reference there, NetherRealm and WBIE even state in the trailer’s description text that the DLC will include “Commando Johnny, Infrared Scorpion and Carl Weathers as Jax.” There’s a quick glimpse of the other two (though I wish they’d change Cage’s shades to normal specs so that he can spout some of Shane Black’s jokes). And even though he’s been a playable character since launch, seeing Jason Voorhees tangle with another horror icon is a welcome sight.
