Frost fights Cassie Cage, Kotal Kahn seeks Sonya Blade's help to combat Mileena - Mortal Kombat X comics overview

Although there's still a couple of months to go before Mortal Kombat X (MKX) is released on all the major gaming platforms today, DC Comics has been working with the fine folks over at NetherRealm studios to publish a series of MKX comics that explores some of the events that took place between Mortal Kombat (2011) and the new game.

Currently the comic series is up to chapter four, and it has revealed that in the world of Mortal Kombat X, Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage are both still alive.

In fact, Kotal Kahn has actually come to Earth seeking Colonel Sonya Blade's help (yep, she's a colonel now... why the heck did she end up with Johnny Cage?) to defeat Mileena over in Outworld.

MK series characters Fujin and Frost also makes appearances in the comic book series. For a more in-depth overview at what's happened in the series so far, check out Perfect Legend's video review of the series so far below.

More hints and/or a new Mortal Kombat X character reveal coming next week, Kitana's Variations to be shown off soon

NetherRealm Studios' own Ed Boon has been active on Twitter lately, as he usually is.

With the surge of Mortal Kombat X news that dropped last week, fans were left licking their lips, anxiously awaiting more. Boon has been addressing as many fan questions on social media as he can, and through this, we how have an idea of when we can expect more.

One Twitter user prompted the MK creator with the question, "when will you drop a hint on the next MKX character?" The response was vague, but certainly promising. "Next week is going to be a lot of fun," Boon replied.

We can hope that this means a new character will be revealed, but at the very least, we can expect a hint at who the next fighter is.

UFC fighter Felice Herrig feels her likenesses were used as inspiration for Mortal Kombat X's Cassie Cage

Cassie Cage, the daughter of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, is a brand new combatant making her debut in NetherRealm Studios' upcoming fighter -- Mortal Kombat X.

UFC fighter Felice Herrig -- who first began her rise to fame during the 20th season of The Ultimate Fighter -- took to Instagram and Twitter recently to point out a visual similarity between herself and MKX's new blonde-bombshell fighter. Not only that, but Herrig feels that her look may have been used as a reference for this character during the design process.

"After thorough investigation, I think it's safe to say Mortal Kombat X definitely used my likeness for the video game character Cassie Cage," Herrig wrote on social media.

Below you can see a couple of side-by-side photographs, courtesy of Herrig, in which the two look fairly similar.

Kitana & Kung Lao's moves, hints of new stages (Fujin stage?) - Mortal Kombat X gameplay trailer analysis from Perfect Legend, Maximilian

The latest Mortal Kombat X gameplay trailer is a little different from all of the ones who've seen before; it packs a lot of detail into a very finite span of time.

In fact, the trailer is so packed that there are some seemingly insignificant minutiae you'll absolutely miss if you as much as blink at the wrong moments -- simply because they flash by so fast.

Good thing then, that two notable members of the FGC -- PerFect Legend and Maximilian -- have looked at the trailer forwards and back.

They've gone through the trailer with a fine-tooth comb, sieving out pertinent details like character move analysis and hints of what's in store for the game, and they've edited together clips of the trailer in slo-mo so that we can see what they see.

Princess Kitana comes back to life in Mortal Kombat X? New trailer ft. Kitana, Kung Lao, Goro and many more

Wait, didn't Kitana, like, die near the end of the story for 2011's Mortal Kombat? I distinctly remember having to fight a zombie version of her after she was killed off in the story.

Oh, sorry for spoilers for a 2009 game, by the way (are you kidding me... well, at least I didn't tell you how she died, for those of you who somehow missed this great game that's currently on sale on PSN).

It looks like, just like with Kung Lao, Edenian princess Kitana has somehow been revived for Mortal Kombat X. She's the next Mortal Kombat X character to be revealed, and in the latest trailer you'll see below, she faces off against sorcerer Quan Chi.

Like Kung Lao, Kitana also looks different from her MK (2011) appearance. In fact, the only reason we know it's Kitana we're looking at here is because the video description says so: "Featuring the first look at the beautiful but deadly Edenian Princess Kitana, and Kung Lao, the powerful martial artist with razor sharp hat tricks, as they perform a variety of fighting styles and brutal moves."

The trailer also features Kung Lao, Goro, and clips of several other characters in action. Watch it for yourself below.

Kung Lao and new stage shown off in Mortal Kombat X - check out this glorious hi-res screenshot

NetherRealm Studios' own Ed Boon just tweeted out a brand new Mortal Kombat X screenshot.

While we all know that Kung Lao will be returning in the 10th installment in the MK franchise, we haven't gotten a clear look at him -- mostly somewhat blurry photos. Today, however, we get a crystal clear glimpse at the returning Mortal Kombat warrior as he puts a beating on Scorpion.

Additionally, a better look at what appears to be a newly revealed MKX stage is seen in this screenshot. We first spotted this backdrop in one of the initial Kung Lao photos, but it may have gone unnoticed by some.

Check out the screenshot below.

PDP's Mortal Kombat X fight pad works for Xbox 360 and Xbox One - check out this hands-on preview from CES 2015

Back in September, a quick glimpse at a new Mortal Kombat X fight pad from PDP was shown off at the GameStop Expo.

The MKX controller has since resurfaced over at CES 2015 -- a large-scale electronics show that took place this past weekend in Las Vegas -- and luckily briantong was able to record a quick hands-on preview.

Right off the bat, we learn that PDP's upcoming fight pad works on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, as the video shows a toggle switch with both options on the controller's face. In a market where backward compatible gaming peripherals are in high demand, being able to switch between the two consoles with the flip of a switch is a huge plus.

Also, the left-hand side of the pad is longer than the right, and the buttons in this particular controller use micro-switches for smoother presses.

Unfortunately, we haven't gotten a look at the PlayStation 4 version of PDP's MKX pad, so we'll have to wait and see if it feature the same backward compatibility as the Xbox's.

You can check out the preview after the jump.

It's been a couple of days since we first reported that Kung Lao is the latest character reveal for Mortal Kombat X. Since then, although NetherRealms Studios have yet to release a character introduction trailer for Kung Lao, a few more details on the variations have emerged through an English magazine scan:

In lieu of an actual Kung Lao Mortal Kombat X trailer, Perfect Legend has taken matters into his own hands and offered MK fans a sneak peek at how the character's three variations would differ, by simulating their differences (based on the details from the magazines) using existing moves in Mortal Kombat 9.
