Predator coming to Mortal Kombat X in July, Klassic Fatalities confirmed and likely to be released in next update

Mortal Kombat X is gearing up for a big update.

Firstly, it looks as though Klassic Fatalities have been confirmed. As with previous DLC, the proof lies in The Krypt, where we see some of the upcoming content listed in the "Finishers" section.

In the past, we've seen both Jason Voorhees and Tanya -- the game's first two DLC characters -- appear listed in The Krypt a short time before they were released. Now, we see that Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Sonya all have a third fatality listed.

This time, the reveal goes one step further, as you can see in the images below that the fatalities can actually be found in each character's move list. The names of these finishing moves fall match up with fatalities found in previous MK games, such as Scorpion's Toasty fatality.

'If you're not going to land the hit, combo may as well not exist' Ketchup and Mustard explain the pivotal 'Art of Rushdown' in their latest video

Striking, blocking, and throwing are fairly universal when it comes to fighting games, but each game finds its exclusivity in the way it lends itself to one, specific approach. While defense and zoning are very relevant parts of Mortal Kombat X, the game is probably most defined by its rush down offense.

Ketchup and Mustard continue their instructional series for MKX with episode four of Casual to Competitive: The Art of Rushdown. Here they delve into what it takes to get in your opponent's face and open them up so that you can perform your most damaging combos.

While looked at and discussed through the lens of MKX, the lessons here apply almost across the board when it comes to fighting games. You can take what you learn here and implement it directly into a game like Street Fighter and see very similar results.

In this lesson, K&M go over hit confirming, run cancelling, footsies, frame traps and counter poking. Learning these concepts will up your basic fighting game skills quite substantially, so hit the jump and get started on The Art of Rushdown.
