Mortal Kombat X Video Shows Rare New Granny Brutality

Ed Boon also confirms costume packs are on the way, shows Brazil outfits.

41 Comments

You may not have known this but the old lady hanging around in the background of Mortal Kombat X's Outworld Marketplace arena is called Blanche.

Blanche, who was probably only at the Outworld Marketplace on her weekly fruit run, has the unfortunate luck of having to witness gruesome one-on-one battles between all manner of terrifying combatants.

However, thanks to the latest Mortal Kombat X update, dear old Blanche can now get in on the action and throw down with some of Outworld's finest.

Once a player uses at least two stage interactables, picking up Blanche and throwing her at the opponent while holding the down button will result in the new Brutality.

During this Brutality Blanche, who is usually a sweet old lady that enjoys toffee flavoured hard candy (not cannon), embraces her inner monster and mounts the victim to deliver a series of devastating punches to the face.

Watch the video above to see it happen and, remember folks, respect the elderly.

No Caption Provided

In other Mortal Kombat X news, series co-creator and NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon revealed a "number of additional costumes" are coming to the game, including a Brazil-themed pack.

Mortal Kombat X had a record-breaking launch when it released in April, reaching the top of NPD's chart for physical sales for the month.

GameSpot's Mortal Kombat X review praised NetherRealm's latest entry for its solid fighting mechanics and the challenges offered, but criticized for its monetization model.

If the DLC included more stages, characters that people want (not cheap gimmicks like guest characters), game modes, etc, the financial extortion of gamers would be a little more forgivable, but to charge for cosmetic stuff like costumes (which aren't all that great) is offensive.


Unfortunately, they wouldn't do it if people weren't so eager to bend over to snap up any sort DLC.

@OneMoreJedi: You bought a season pass. You deserve punishment.

Oh and to answer your question...NO these are NOT covered by your season pass...all of these skins and stuff are free..and yeah you've been ripped off with the season pass.

This is why I wait for the complete edition.

Upvote for granny. Downvote for more DLC.


I think no one would be mad if the only DLC was this cosmetic stuff, but locking away characters behind a paywall is a douche move.

@Elranzer@jack00: More like several months to about a year. The last thing you want is a Komplete Edition and then you have more paid dlc.

@phili878:

Yup... in fact I was click-baited into thinking that this stupid game had now a granny among its contenders, so I gleefully expected to see some fatality featuring a steel walker and a human posterior... only to see the most ludicrous 'fatality' ever.

Lame. :-P

I've never seen a granny fatality. This should be a new experience. A rather strange one too.

Gotta love the article reminding us to show respect to the elderly. I was worried I'll throw good Ms. Josie out the window.
