Smosh Games gets brutal with Mortal Kombat in their latest Honest Game Trailer

Smosh Games has been inundated with requests to do a Mortal Kombat edition of their Honest Game Trailers video series recently, after NetherRealm Studios announced Mortal Kombat X for current and new-gen platforms. So they heeded their fans' pleas.

The result is not only entertaining, but decidedly brutal -- even for a game franchise in which the characters fracture skulls and rip out their opponents' spines upon victory.

Here's an excerpt to start you off (video embedded after the jump):

"From the developers who created one of the best fighting games of all time, then did everything they could to ruin it, comes a franchise that taught kids all they know about human anatomy, and absolutely nothing about spelling -- Mortal Kombat."

Cover art for Mortal Kombat X revealed, pre-orders available now

The cover art for Mortal Kombat X is available for fans to view now. The game is still a good ways off, as its release date is set for 2015, so this artwork may change around between now and then.

Also, pre-orders for the game are now live on a variety of retail websites, like Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and many others. The suggested retail price is $59.99.

On the official Mortal Kombat website, NetherRealm Studios put up a few images of Scorpion for the community to check out.

You can see that his character model has a very high level of detail, and some great textures. Hopefully the team shows quite a bit more of this stuff in the future for the other fighters.

Updated: Mortal Kombat X features multiple variations of each character, new cast members, game modes & graphics engine

Updated: Ed Boon confirmed that MKX would have new characters, game modes, and an all new graphics engine in a recent statement.

Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilize the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet. The team has worked hard to make sure Mortal Kombat X delivers everything fans expect along with new characters, new game modes and an all new graphics engine.

The official PlayStation YouTube channel uploaded the Mortal Kombat 10 announcement trailer today, but they included some previously unknown details in the clip's description.

Most notably that Mortal Kombat 10 will have multiple variations of each character, and that feature will change the strategy and fighting style of the combatants.

The last major detail is that the game features a "persistent online contest," where apparently every battle is logged as part of some ranking system.

Mortal Kombat X officially revealed, announcement trailer shown

Updated: Warner Bros. confirmed that Mortal Kombat X would be released on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in 2015, which backs up the Amazon UK listing we previously posted.

Ed Boon announced the 10th installment of Mortal Kombat today, saying the game is officially titled Mortal Kombat X.

NetherRealm Studios also released the announcement trailer for the game which shows Sub-Zero and Scorpion fighting, using x-ray attacks through part of the bout, and their environment to attack each other, then ending with one of the series' signature fatalities.

Here are a few high resolution images from the video.

Four arms of fury: How the special effects team brought Goro to life in the first Mortal Kombat movie

Goro was known in the first Mortal Kombat movie for his unintentionally hilarious moments. Some of his facial expressions and actions really couldn't be viewed as anything but comedic.

Still, the actual process of bringing him to life in the film is pretty interesting, and we've posted a behind the scenes video which shows many of the devices, make-up applications and others that brought this four-armed dude to the big screen.

Goro was a 120lb animatronic suit, meaning the guy with him strapped on his torso had to be in pretty good shape, and be able to hold that amount of weight for a long period of time. You can find the video after the break.

Tiers for Persona 4: Arena, Mortal Kombat 9 and Guilty Gear launched

Updated: Ed Boon all but confirms new Mortal Kombat is in the works, posts reworked logo

Earlier today, a poster surfaced over on the Xbox One sub-Reddit that shows a heavily battered spinal cord with the re-stylized Mortal Kombat dragon logo at the bottom. Hit the jump to check it out.

Ed Boon's recent Twitter hint may be pointing in the direction of Mortal Kombat 10

NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon continues to leave cryptic hints at a possible upcoming title over on Twitter. Just yesterday, Boon posted a picture of a car's back emblem that reads, "MKX."

The Mortal Kombat creator added a quick message that asks, "Hmmm... I wonder what the X stands for?" As many know, the last MK title, although simply deemed "Mortal Kombat," is actually the 9th game in the series. Could Ed be hinting at Mortal Kombat X (10)?

Earlier this month, Boon began a countdown on Twitter that is set to end on June 2nd of this year, given he continues dropping hints at a steady rate.

Do you think the next Mortal Kombat title is on its way? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.

Cyborg vs. cyborg: ScrewAttack pits Killer Instinct's Fulgore against Mortal Kombat's Sektor in their latest 'Death Battle' video

If you've played the old-school Killer Instinct or Mortal Kombat games, there's a good chance that Fulgore from KI and Sektor from MK might have left a deep impression within you, even if they are characters you never played.

Like 'em or hate 'em, Fulgore and Sektor somehow managed to work their way into your latent subconscious minds and long-term memory banks, in spite of each game's colourful cast.

Simply because the two are cyborgs. They're kind of like Street Fighter's Shotos -- except way easier to clone.

And while we likely won't be seeing a Killer Instinct vs. Mortal Kombat fighting game anytime soon, thanks to ScrewAttack.com's latest Death Battle video, we'll at least be able to settle once and for all who would emerge victorious in a fight between the two games' meanest, leanest Killer/Kombatant.

As with all of ScrewAttack's Death Battle videos, before the actual fight there is an extensive tale of the tape for each character, that sizes up all of their available weaponry and fighting prowess -- along with trivia you might have missed.

Hit the jump to watch the fight, and see if you can predict who the victor is -- lock your vote by commenting before starting the vid.

Ultimate cosplay? Photos of Kitana, Sonya, Liu Kang and more surface in full costume for cancelled HD remake of Mortal Kombat

Make-up artist Tanea Brooks put up photos of the cancelled Mortal Kombat HD remake on to her website.

These actors would have been playing Kitana, Sonya, Liu Kang and more. They're shown here in full costume, but Midway's initial plan got axed, and we ended up with Mortal Kombat Kollection in its place.

Despite the fact this will likely never see the light of day, it's kind of cool to see a behind the scenes look at how Midway planned on putting the project together. Hit the jump to see all of the photos.

Ed Boon is counting down to something on Twitter - Is it a new Mortal Kombat? Injustice? Or something else?

NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon has started a countdown over on Twitter that may be leading up to the company's next game reveal. The Mortal Kombat kreator has now sent out three cryptic hints, each of which unveiling a number descending from 29.

The first tweet asked for the square root of 841, which comes out to 29. The second asked for the number of days in (non-leap-year) February, which is 28. Today's tweet simply linked up a video clip from the television show, The Simpsons, which ends with the number 27.

If Boon continues this countdown, it should end right around June 2. A recent rumor suggests that a sequel to the DC Comics brawler, Injustice: Gods Among Us, may currently be in the works. However, back in February of this year, star of the 24 television series, Keifer Sutherland, mentioned on Twitter that he recently concluded work on a Mortal Kombat title.

Whether NetherRealm Studios is working on either game or something completely new is still yet to be revealed. We'll just have to wait until the end of Mr. Boon's countdown to see what they have in store for fans.
