Official Mortal Kombat X Reveal Trailer

JM: Last week we got a teaser, this morning it has been confirmed. The official name for the new Mortal Kombat title is Mortal Kombat X confirmed straight from Ed Boon. Mortal Kombat X is the sequel to the hit 2011 reboot of the series. The fans have been waiting for this since then, and it's finally here.

The story is too old to be commented.

Finally a proper fighting game for the new consoles.

ZodTheRipper1174d ago

Trailer would've been better without any music at all ...but hell yes next gen Mortal Kombat :D

@nicksetzer1
KI is decent, personally it disappointed me with few characters, modes.
It's no where near the quality of top fighting games like MK9, Tekken, KOF XIII, SF.

@ZodTheRipper
I agree with you on that, they should have used sound-tracks from MK9 to give us the MK feel.
MK9 was so good, I only want them to do some tweaking here and there and build on it.

NewMonday1174d ago

if this how it really looks MK could conquer the fighting game genre on new gen consoles.

serves you right Capcom for dragging your feet.

LOL_WUT1174d ago

The music ruined it for me but teaser was great ;)

AliTheSnake11174d ago

Nice music, unique from the usual. Hopefully next trailer rocks the Mortal Kombat theme.

Lord_Sloth1174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

Guilty Gear Xrd will launch before MKX.

PLASTICA-MAN1174d ago

Very very very impressive trailer and game.

But WHY? WHY always Sub-zero gets killed in every Mortal Kombat trailer and by Scorpion too? I think Ed Boon just confirmed he hates Sub-Zero and worships scorpion.

@fardan85

Dont forget blazblue, that game is awesome.

On topic:
Sub-zero always gets killed in these trailers, annoying to hell. Specially for us fans.

FamilyGuy1174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

This looks great: brutal, torn flesh, ripped/damaged clothes, has weapons, interactions with the environment and the character detail they're going for seems pretty high.

The music, if you actually listened to the lyrics, did match up with the fight. The beat was more of a problem for me than the song itself as the song made sense for a fight scene.

It does make you curious what they plan to do on the soundtrack this time around but with 95% or so of the comments here alone being so negative about the music there's a good chance that they'll back off having much rap in it.

Having spoken words in the music, of any genre of music, kind of throws you out of the immersion of fighting video games. Beats/instrumentals alone would be better.

"Official Mortal Kombat X Reveal Trailer"

they're going to have to do better than that to impress me. It was Obviously not in game. it could look like that if it was PC lead on the other hand.

MK 9 was a pretty good game, i just didn't like the over usage of pre-rendered graphics. i hope it's not the same with this game.

PurpHerbison1174d ago

Never ever put MK in the same league as KOF, SF, or Tekken. The first proper fighting game that will hit is Guilty Gear Xrd and MK will never hold a candle to it. MK will feel like another underwater fighting simulator.

Sirlancealot1174d ago

@ZodTheRipper The music actually made it have the extra hype.

alexkoepp1174d ago

Ugh, cross gen compromised, noooooooooooooooo!

starchild1174d ago

The music sucked and was completely out of place, but other than that the trailer was pretty amazing.

Ares84HU1174d ago

We will see how good it is once we see some gameplay but I have a feeling it will be awesome.

Also, the trailer was BADASS!!! But the music, man that music sucked big time.

Rap just doesn't fit with MK. (Or in my opinion with anything.)

FACTUAL evidence1174d ago

Welp!I guess the reveal is ruined because it had rapss muszicz in it, oh noes!! It would of been the most perfect trailer with hardcore rock though huh guys?? SMH.

Tony-Red-Grave1174d ago

I'm still waiting on the first bit of official news on a next gen Tekken :'(

Kleptic1174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

Two undead 'ninjas' with respect to opposing elements, fighting in a darkly lit and dramatic winter forest...

scored with generic hip hop?...and people actually find that 'badass' and 'epic'???

It seems that almost daily i'm reminded of how out of touch i've become with this industry...

EDIT: Factual Evidence...no...it would've been better if it had, you know, music that actual fits the game...or even the established franchise...in some remote way...

if you can't see how that is obvious marketing from some team of suits saying 'what do kids like these days?...oh yeah...rap music...put that in there'...i don't know what to say...

it was if that trailer was purposely made to be as uncreative as humanly possible...that audio was as bad as the federal government's attempts to stop kids from buying cigerettes...

'Better bring your ID son; can't get tobacco without one...uh uh yeah yeah...Better bring your ID son; can't get tobacco without one...'

lame...

BISHOP-BRASIL1173d ago

I don't get what's with all the breaking bones in MK if the enemy is just keep fighting back like nothing had ever happened. Knee shattered? No problem, I'll just stand up right and kick his face. Dislocated elbow? No time to fix it, gotta trow another powerful punch. Broken ribs? Who needs to breath in the middle of a fight?

4Sh0w1173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

@Kleptic, I'm older than most here but I grew up with RUN DMC and so on. I think most rap today is garbage, it lacks the storytelling and powerful lyrics of the past but I still like some of todays rap music. I wouldn't have chosen that song myself but the music at least had a good tempo for the action, it wasn't terrible, either way the actual fight seen was badasss to me, I want to see more, but to each his own.

@BISHOP-BRASIL, its a videoGAME, I mean dammm first of all these are guys with ice, fire, a harpoon etc fighting to the death, lets say in real life an avg joe were hunting in that forest and stumbled upon this fight scene; the last question that would come to his mind I suspect is "how does he keep fighting with a broken arm?" I mean I guess if a normal person were able to actually get over the shock of what's happening, he or she would probably assume until beaten beyond recovery that they are fast healer,s or can fight despite broken bones or many other reasons why a guy that can conjure ice from the thin air is still able to fight after severe blows from a guy throwing chained harpoons out of his ass. lol, It's not a simulation it's a game with dead characters fighting. You analysis is sort of like questioning why cartoon characters like Wiley Coyote keeps coming back for the Road Runner after he's been hit by a truck a million times= ahh because its a kiddie cartoon and that's what he does to make kids laugh. smh

Trekster_Gamer1173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

Music could not be worse for a Mortal Kombat game!

UltraNova1173d ago

@kleptic and others complaining about the music choice

Ahhh yeah that was a terrible, mainstream, hype inducing choice to say the least, on top of a CGI-definitely nowhere near actual gameplay- trailer...

I think some Rage Against the Machine would serve better... at least in the bad-ass department..

Chrischi19881173d ago

The music was really really bad...

And I also did not like, that they actually let Scorpion win against Sub Zero, instead of making it a neutral fight...

Totally agree. Can't Wait for next MKX

mrpsychoticstalker1174d ago

Yesssssssss...... The game looks beautiful. It looks like there will be interaction with the environment around. The music Suck! MK doesn't do well with rap. Other than that . This is a day one for me.

thekhurg1174d ago

Impressive until the music started...

Visiblemarc1174d ago

Yeah...if the game is actually this awesome, I don't really have a choice, I've gotta get it. Amazing.
