'Hungry? Grab a Snickers' - Ed Boon says previous-gen Mortal Kombat X news is coming soon

Shortly before Mortal Kombat X -- NetherRealm Studios' blockbuster fighting title -- was released, Warner Bros. announced that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions would be delayed until the Summer of this year. Since then, we haven't heard much about the previous-gen ports of the game.

Just a couple of days ago, one of Ed Boon's Twitter followers sent the co-creator of Mortal Kombat a humorous meme in which Boon is instructed to eat a Snickers so that he can remember the promise of previous-gen MKX ports. (I'm not making this up...)

Boon replied to the tweet, and revealed that an update pertaining to the Xbox 360 / PS3 version is "coming soon." Both versions are being developed by the Chicago studio High Voltage.

Based on Boon's tweet, those awaiting a previous-gen version of Mortal Kombat X should stay tuned.

Which hell-spawn, fire-breathing skeleton would win in a fight? One Minute Melee pits Scorpion against Ghost Rider in a duel to the death

Screw Attack continues their "One Minute Melee" series with a 60 second bout between two hellish fighters.

Mortal Kombat's Scorpion takes on Marvel's Ghost Rider in a fiery bout to the death in a more than fitting locale.

Unlike Screw Attack's sister show, Death Battle!, One Minute Melee doesn't involve any research or justification. It's less of a thinker's fight, and more of a "what if these two awesome characters fought to the death in hell" kind of person's fight.

The great part is, even if you're unhappy with the outcome, you only spent a minute of your time watching. Hit the jump below to see who survives. hell spawn

A chance of showers? Ed Boon hints at a second Kombat Pack and Rain on Twitter

Recently on Twitter, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon jumped on board the "Straight outta" meme train with a contribution of his own. Captioned with only a winking smile, Ed tweeted this: There are a few ways this could be interpreted, as the "straight outta" phrase has been used to imply either emergence from, or to have depleted a supply of something.

The big question on people's minds as of late, will NetherRealm Studios release a second Kombat Pack? With MKX doing as well as it has, some would say it's only a matter of "when."

Hit the jump below to see Boon's hint about "Purple Rain."

A PC mod unmasks characters in Mortal Kombat X... and Torr is absolutely hideous

Many of the characters of Mortal Kombat have long been identified not by their actual faces, but by their iconic facial wear. I remember coming out of a movie when I was seven to see a Mortal Kombat 3 arcade featuring unmasked Sub-Zero, and nearly losing my mind.

Perhaps seeing the characters of Mortal Kombat X unmasked wouldn't inspire us to react like seven year olds... most of us anyway... but we'd be lying if we said we weren't just a little curious as to what Torr looks like under his gunny sack.

It just so happens that a PC mod has allowed for just such curiosities to be satisfied. The YouTube channel Dynasty has uploaded a video showing off a few MKX characters, playable and not, without their traditional facial head wear.

Check out Torr, Erron Black and Sub-Zero below:

Rumor: James Wan, director of Furious 7, jumping in to produce new Mortal Kombat movie

With Mortal Kombat IX and X successfully rebooting the franchise, it makes sense that a Hollywood remake would be soon to follow.

Penning this "darker, brutally real" martial arts movie will be Mortal Kombat: Legacy writer Oren Uziel and Dave Collaham, who wrote The Expendables. According to Tracking Report, the movie "centers around a seemingly harmless guy who realizes his potential when he finds himself caught in the middle of a cross-dimensional battle between the warriors of Earth and the monsters of the Outworld."

And the winner is... See which characters EventHubs readers voted as most wanted for future updates of Mortal Kombat X

Update: The votes are in, 2,937 votes to be exact, and you've chosen who you want to see in possible future Mortal Kombat X updates.

You've voted Noob Saibot as first with 209 votes, then Frost and Rain both with 186 votes, Fujin with 182 votes and Smoke with 157 votes as your top five hopefuls should MKX release new DLC characters in the future. You can hit the jump below to see the full results.

Earlier: Mortal Kombat X has finally finished releasing the first Kombat Pack, featuring the four DLC characters Jason, Tanya, Predator and Tremor. During their Tremor Kombat Kast, developers briefly hinted at the possibility for another Kombat Pack, and therefore more new characters.

With the success of MKX thus far, evidenced by the popularity of the Mortal Kombat ESL Pro League, and attendance numbers at major events such as EVO 2015, few would be surprised if developers continued to generate new content for the game.

With a massive cast of characters from previous titles, possibilities are vast. Having experienced about four months of MKX now, we'd like to hear who you'd want to see as playable in the latest Mortal Kombat universe.

It's been almost a year, but Comeback Compilation is back with episode 40, covers 10 months of brilliant rallies

Finally making its return, LiangHuBBB's Comeback Compilation series provides thirty minutes of one of the best episodes in its history.

Not bound to any particular game, you can expect to see some outstanding footage from Ultra Street Fighter 4, Guilty Gear Xrd, Mortal Kombat X, Street Fighter 3: Third Strike and more with such players as Alex Valle, Alioune, Bonchan, among others.

I will give you one warning. Expect Guile's theme to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day after watching this. It uses different versions and mixes in other songs, but that only does so much to stop you from humming it to yourself hours later.

Check out almost a year's worth of hilarious moments below.

Dismemberment, contortion and... more smashing with rocks; Tremor's secret Brutalities keep rollin' in

Mortal Kombat's latest rock star reveals three more secret finishers in this Brutality compilation video from EventHubs reader NMS84.

If you weren't satisfied with lava baths, turning enemies into gold, various forms of impalement and head smashing, (and why would you be?) then get ready for even more earth-themed enders.

We've actually posted a few videos featuring Tremor Brutalities already, but we're confident that with this one, we'll have gotten them all. This brings Tremor's Brutality total to a whopping 10. The previous record was held by Jacqui Briggs, who has seven.

As per the usual with Mortal Kombat, things get a bit messy with human body parts and such, so it's NSFW. With that in mind, feel free to hit the jump and watch the video.

Mortal Kombat X tops the best-selling chart for 2015 so far

Mortal Kombat X was released in April of this year, and so far, its sales have been strong.

How strong, you ask? Well, according to Fortune -- a business magazine published by Time -- Mortal Kombat X is the best selling of the year so far.

It should be noted that the sales numbers calculated were not console specific, but actually illustrate the total number of copies sold across all platforms. Additionally, this chart lists the best-selling games, not best-selling new releases. Hence, you'll see games such as Super Smash Bros. 4 make an appearance.

Hit the jump to check out the top 10 best-selling games of 2015.

What if the Super Smash cast had X-ray attacks? Link's Hookshot just became a lot more terrifying...

Careful observation and clever editing have resulted in quite an interesting watch as Brilliant Buffoons have created another Smash Bros X Mortal Kombat X hybrid video.

This video is set in the Smash Bros. world, but the traditional, playful and cartoonish hit sparks have been replaced with bone breaking kill moves. Instead of Diddy's playful chomp, we get Mileena's ravenous head maul. Instead of Captain Falcon's trademark knee, we get Kotal Khan's skull shattering X-ray.

We'd actually seen a similar video posted last month, but with updates and new characters in both games, the concept is more than fresh enough to revisit.

We should warn you that it is a bit gruesome, but surely fun to watch. Hit the jump below to see the clever mash up.

Tremor has a hidden brutality in Mortal Kombat X and it involves fire

Each character in Mortal Kombat X has two fatalities and five brutalities listed in-game (excluding DLC fatalities). We've already seen all of Tremor's listed finishers, but it appears as though he currently has a hidden brutality.

Broly1337 sent us a video of the aforementioned secret finisher. In this clip, we see that Tremor is in his Metallic variation.

Using his falling rock special move, the fiery boulder comes crashing down on the opponent, setting them ablaze until only a skeleton remains. Considering the fire-based nature of this brutality, chances are it is specific to the Metallic variation.

The stipulations for this brutality are currently unknown, but I'm sure some hardcore MKX fans will uncover the details soon.

Hit the jump to check out Tremor's hidden brutality.
