After her trailer was shown, NetherRealm Studios provided a quick breakdown of her moves. Seeing as how the game is mere hours away from launch, it might be a good idea for future Frost mains to familiarize themselves with the character.

How to perform all Krushing Blows in Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11 features a game mechanic called "Krushing Blows" that fire into a quick cinematic animation with a similar effect to X-Ray attacks and deal significantly more damage than the move otherwise would.

Mercy is back in Mortal Kombat 11, here's some footage and how to perform one

While playing Mortal Kombat 11 online for our review, I ran into a Kung Lao that promptly handed my own ass to me a few times in a row with little effort.

Upon losing the third or fourth match I expected the same Fatality sequence to pop up on the screen, but instead the Kung Lao backed off and started tea bagging... and then my character got back up and was able to fight again. Mercy is back in MK11.

Zaferino's new Sagat tech involving negative edge fireballs and an option select proves we haven't quite seen everything The King has to offer in SF5

Despite being perhaps the most highly anticipated character to join the Street Fighter 5 roster after initial launch, Sagat has made a somewhat disappointing landing amidst the game's mid tier fighters, ultimately lacking the tools needed to really thrive.

While he may not be top tier, there are a good few Sagat faithfuls that continue to explore what The King can do here in his latest iteration, and the learned master of the Fighter Academy, Zaferino, has come across some new tech that might help the one eyed Muay Thai competitor level up in the eyes of the community a bit.

Mortal Kombat 11 review: Fighting games' goriest franchise continues to excel at what it's good at and makes progress where it traditionally hasn't

NetherRealm Studios have gotten big scale Mortal Kombat development down to a science, consistently upping antes, tightening loose ends, and moving in a somewhat predictable (a good thing) fashion. Mortal Kombat 11 kontinues this trend by building on the strengths of its widely successful predecessor while showing clear acknowledgement of previous shortcomings.

While not a perfect game, the latest MK installment absolutely delivers on expectations while taking appropriate risks. It achieves the fundamental goal of moving the MK train along nicely, but certainly adds a few new bells and whistles in the process.
