Mortal Kombat X review: NetherRealm's blockbuster gore-fest is here to stay

I've played Mortal Kombat 9, I've played Injustice: Gods Among Us, and now, I've played Mortal Kombat X -- the latest title in NetherRealm Studios’ fighting game repertoire. The blockbuster gore-fest that is MKX is on the verge of its official release, and we here at EventHubs were given the opportunity to get quite a bit of hands-on time with the new current-gen fighter.

Today, we’ve prepared for you a written review of Mortal Kombat X on PlayStation 4. How does this installment stack up against its predecessor? Are Variations as much of a game changer as NRS intended them to be? And, damn it! Who's next?! We’ll be answering all of that (well, most of it) and more right here, right now.

From the start, Mortal Kombat X’s presentation comes barreling at you like a demon bat (Puggles) right out of Hell. This game is beautiful; from the detailed backdrop that lines the main menu screen (dependent upon which Faction you pledge to) to the rich character models that interact on the character select screen, this game is an absolute joy to look at. Lighting and weather effects are realistic, severed limbs are disgustingly intricate, and characters even take battle damage as the fight rages on.

It’s everything you could ever want and/or need in a Mortal Kombat game.

Here's Johnny! New Mortal Kombat X trailer officially reveals Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage as playable

This morning, WBGames has released a brand new trailer focusing on the Cage family. Snappy dialogue, Fatalities, combos, and more await you. The family dynamic is both hilarious and brutal, especially considering the kind of universe the Cage's live in.

Despite constant violence and the risk of death, the Cage family comes off like they're from a 1980's sitcom. One-liners appear a healthy part of the bloodline. Not only that, but this trailer officially reveals that both Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade will be playable characters in Mortal Kombat X.

It's also worth noting that Shinnok, Baraka, Kenshi, and someone who appears to be Jax (a man with two cybernetic arms) show up in the trailer, though they're not confirmed as playable.

Mortal Kombat X move listings (in progress) added to EventHubs moves database

Mortal Kombat X is set to drop on April 14th of this year, and we here at EventHubs cannot wait to get our hands on NetherRealm's next big fighting game release.

In the mean time, we have decided to begin adding move listings for Mortal Kombat X to our moves database here on the site. As of right now, we have the special move quick lists (seen when the game is paused) for 12 of the 14 characters found on the character select screen during the last Kombat Kast. This includes everyone except for Goro and D'Vorah.

To get these move listings, we had to rummage through every stream and gameplay video we could find online. Though you'll find at least the basics for the 12 MK kombatants, some fighters have variation special moves as well.

We will be adding more special moves to our moves database as we spot them, and when the game officially drops you can expect a fully fleshed out moves section.

For now, be sure to get an early look at the Mortal Kombat X move listings right here on EventHubs!

3 brand new characters revealed in Mortal Kombat X: The daughter of Jax, the son of Kenshi, and a descendant of Kung Lao

Mortal Kombat X has seen a huge reveal this morning.

A trailer was officially released today that gives a much closer look at what we can expect to see from story mode once the game drops in April.

We are also introduced to three brand new fighters.

Taking place 25 years after the events of Mortal Kombat (2011), the new generation of characters will discover that Outworld is not the only threat they face. Fans will get a first look at the newest fighters to join Cassie Cage, including Jacqueline Briggs, daughter of Jax, Takashi Takeda, son of Kenshi, and Kung Jin, descendant of Kung Lao.

Shinnok and Mileena also make an appearance in this trailer, however, we don't see any actual gameplay footage of either, leading us to believe that they are merely a part of MKX's story. That doesn't rule the idea of them being playable out just yet, but as of now there is no confirmation.
