A few years ago, most gamers outside of the die-hard fans would have paid little attention to a new Mortal Kombat release, but Mortal Kombat 9 changed things. Thanks to NetherRealm Studios’ reboot/sequel, players discovered a newfound love for the franchise, due in large part to MK 9’s strong story, tight gameplay, and deep modes.
It’s for that reason that Mortal Kombat X arrives with more expectations than any prior franchise entry. This is NetherRealm Studios’ chance to push the series into the current-gen, while also preparing fans for what the future holds. No pressure, right?
