Looks like Mortal Kombat 10 will be Announced Today [UPDATE]

Mortal Kombat X officially announced.

[UPDATE] Mortal Kombat X is now officially announced. It's launching in 2015 for unspecified platforms.

The original story is below.

Mortal Kombat fans don't have much longer to wait to hear about the next entry in the esteemed fighting series. In a Twitter exchange with rapper Wiz Khalifa, Mortal Kombat franchise creator Ed Boon said, "On June 2nd, Kombat Kontinues…" with the hashtag "WHOSNEXT." This is the same phrase we saw in a leaked poster last week.

Khalifa originally tweeted, "I am "WHOSNEXT," including Boon's Twitter handle (@noobde) in his tweet. Boon has been counting down to some kind of reveal on June 2 for a long time now.

In addition to the leaked poster, Amazon UK posted (and swiftly removed, but not before MP1st captured an image) product pages for "Mortal Kombat X" for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. The product pages say the game will be out in 2015.

NetherRealm Studios is presumably the developer for Mortal Kombat X. The Chicago studio's most recent console game was 2013's Injustice: Gods Among Us, while the latest entry in the core Mortal Kombat series was 2011's Mortal Kombat for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and PlayStation Vita.

Check back later today for the official Mortal Kombat X announcement and all the details.

Everything has already been announced as usual, I wish they all fecking waited so E3 was exciting. These days you watch the conferences for first party reveals, then E3 is over because all the third party stuff was announced pre E3. For the past few years I haven't even bothered watching E3 as a result, they might as well not bother and just have conferences.

I wonder if they can make it better than the previews one. Besides the graphic updates, can they make the gameplay any better?

Who's Next?  Probably Baba O'Riley.  The poster should have Sub-Zero staring out from behind blue eyes.  Maybe Mortal Kombat is going mobile?  It might be a bargain, but given their history, I won't get fooled again.

I am excited for this, even though I haven't played a MK game in a long time. It is just the memories I have of playing MK2 with my brothers back in the day :D

And since there wasn't a move list in the game, we had to try different commands out for each character, and that was kind of fun, the moment you figure out a new move :)

- OMG how did you do that? how did you do that?

- Not telling ;D

Your soul is mine!


This is good news as I haven't played a MK fighting game since I stopped playing MK9 a few years ago. We need more fighting games in general.

@Bumblebee1138 Not according to the story.  Raiden uses his power to transfer his mind and body to the past during the timeline of the MKII storyline and recreates an alternate storyline.

@kane6911 Sub and Scorp will be there no matter if the rest of the characters were all new or not.

@ahpuck Looks like gameplay will be a lot better......looks more fluid and interactive environments like from Injustice.  I know this is weird, but with next-gen tech they could definitely do without a HUD and result with just how the player looks physically.......although I guess that could be tough if you have to perform a Fatality.

@kane6911 I'm not disagreeing with you, but really want do you mean about "all new characters"?  Do you mean no characters from MK9, but still characters from MK4 on?  Or never before seen, new to the MK universe characters?

Personally I can do without any repeats from MK9 but I still want the other characters like Hotaru, Havik, Fujin, Movado, etc.
