Mortal Kombat X mod gives Scorpion a gun because... yes

Mortal Kombat X is an aggressive, offense-heavy fighting game that's meta revolves around getting in your opponent's face and staying there. Thanks to a mod, though, one of the game's most popular characters just got even more aggressive.

In a clip shared by prominent Mortal Kombat community member PND Ketchup, we see a quick scene where Scorpion faces off against his icy counterpart, Sub-Zero. What's different here, though, is that the fiery ninja brings out a machine gun mid-combo to blast away his foe.

Kazuya Mishima shown to have some of the most complex hitboxes in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate by Rekzius

Tekken's Kazuya in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is definitely one of the most complex characters in the game. Not only does he have more moves than most other characters, but the inputs to perform some of them require a lot of practice to master.

As a result, it's not too surprising to hear that even Kazuya's hitboxes are constructed in a very complex manner. Rekzius recently released a 25 minute video that outlines everything you need to know about the properties of Kazuya and his attacks.

Sega of America repeatedly asked Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown's developers to use rollback netcode but was deemed not feasible

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown released last month as the first time the series has seen some love from Sega outside of the arcades in almost a decade though many prospective players were hung up on the game's lack of rollback netcode.

The first draft of Kazuya Mishima in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was surprisingly weak before buffs according to Masahiro Sakurai

Tekken's Kazuya Mishima is the latest fighter to join Super Smash Bros. Ultiamte via the Challenger Pack 10. Though we haven't had a chance to see what Kazuya can do at a super major tournament, initial impressions seem to suggest that the character could be a solid high tier, or possibly even better. One thing that Kazuya really has going for him is his access to touch of death combos, which is mostly thanks to how his Electric Wind God Fist works.

While Kazuya might appear strong, this apparently wasn't always the case during his development. During the "Mr. Sakurai Presents Kazuya" video, Masahiro Sakurai revealed some interesting details about the balancing process for Kazuya in Smash.

4 popular anime franchises most likely to get the Dragon Ball FighterZ treatment next

We recently uncovered a job opening for a game developer that appeared to reveal a brand new large-scale anime fighting game is now in the works, but what is it?

While a sequel to the massively successful Dragon Ball FighterZ may be the most obvious choice for some, there are a handful of other huge manga properties who may fit the bill just as well that can bring something fun / unique to the table.

Questionable mobility but perhaps the longest-reaching normals in the game make for a mixed bag of a character — Amakusa review

Last month, we got our latest DLC character for Samurai Shodown in one of the most requested and beloved characters who was still missing from the roster, that being none other than the final boss of the very first game in the series, Shiro Tokisada Amakusa. After having appeared as a boss in the first game he proved so popular that SNK later retrofitted him as a normal playable character balanced for versus matches and ever since he's been one of the most enduring cast members in the series.

So how does he hold up in the latest Samurai Shodown? He retains much of his previous moveset and all of his classic personality, but how effective is this in the new game's meta? I took some time to play the character and try to figure out what he's all about, and here are my (slightly belated) impressions of Amakusa as the most freshly released character in SNK's current Samurai Shodown.

Update: Injustice 3 or a new fighting game project - what do you want to see from NetherRealm Studios next?

Update: The polls have closed, and you can see the results of what the community wants to see come out of NetherRealm Studios next, which some may find a bit surprising.

NetherRealm Studios, the creators of both the Mortal Kombat and Injustice franchises, recently told the public that they'd officially put the kibosh on Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate development and have moved on to their next project. This naturally has caused the hopes and speculation wheels to start turning in the community.

We have no official road signs pointing to whatever NRS has in the oven, but that doesn't mean we don't have some tea leaves to read. As we prepare for the coming chapter in NetherRealm fighting games, we do find ourselves considering what exactly we'd most like to see next.
