Mortal Kombat X (Netherrealm Studios)

It looks to be another Injustice clone:



From http://www.businesswire.com/news/hom...IY8Lv4>Article :

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced Mortal Kombat X, a free-to-play fighting/card-battler hybrid that delivers the next evolution in mobile fighting games for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Android users. Developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, the game delivers striking graphics and brings a custom Mortal Kombat fighting gameplay experience anywhere, anytime through the accessibility of mobile devices. Mortal Kombat X will be available April 2015 on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Android devices.

“NetherRealm Studios has created a Mortal Kombat X mobile experience that allows more players than ever before to play this over-the-top fighting game through their ever-present smartphones, tablets or other devices,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “What’s more, we’ve expanded the unique cross-connectivity feature that links the mobile and console versions of Mortal Kombat X, delivering unique rewards to all players for simply playing the mobile game.”

As the next evolution of mobile fighting games, the Mortal Kombat X mobile game will feature a hybrid of fighting, card collecting, multiplayer team combat and more, featuring shocking Fatalities, legendary Mortal Kombat characters like Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Raiden as well as the Next generation of Kombatants. The Mortal Kombat X mobile game will showcase the iconic visceral combat with the vicious graphics that Mortal Kombat fans love, along with brutal Fatalities, x-rays and more.

The console and PC versions of Mortal Kombat X will be available worldwide on April 14, 2015. Once launched, players who own the forthcoming console or PC versions of the game will be able to unlock content in the mobile game and vice versa by signing up for a WB Play account and completing tasks and achievements within each version.

I tried playing Injustice and couldn't really wrap my head around it. Didn't really feel like an actual fighting game since it didn't feature actual movement. To each their own ... I'm hoping to play Mortal Kombat X on the PC, personally.

It better not be another Injustice Re-skin!

P.S. That statement seems off, as the person uses hybrid and "evolution of mobile fighting" multiple times, I'll check out the actual article later.

Why do they constantly give us this version of these games?

I hate the IAP laden, card based, swipe to hit with no control of your characters movement versions ... make it a proper game, like the SoulCalibur port. Let us control the fighters with a D Pad or MFI controller. Let us press buttons to attack and block, not swipe, swipe, swipe.

Pass. No doubt another F2P swipe marathon like Injustice or WWE Immortals.

These aren't beat em ups, not by a long shot.

And where the hell is MK Trilogy? Just give me ports of MK 1 and 2 and let me play.

Yeah, in the form of the mediocre Ultimate MK 3.
