You weren’t expecting Mortal Kombat X puns today, weren’t you?
Warning: The trailer below is fairly graphic.
If there’s anything that NetherRealm likes to do with their fighting games, it’s to bring in guest characters from different universes to fight amongst the established group. Mortal Kombat X is no exception, with a gameplay trailer released today showcasing some of the new playable roster that is set to be released during the 2016 campaign as part of the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack 2.
Among the four characters coming to Mortal Kombat X this year are Leatherface and the Xenomorph from Alien. Considering that, somehow, another Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie is coming out this year, it only makes too much sense for the property owners and NetherRealm to collaborate on bringing his chainsaw antics into Mortal Kombat X. Additionally, Triborg makes a return and Bo’ Rai Cho takes a more hands-on approach to the fighting game scene than he does during the game’s story campaign.

As is tradition, these new Mortal Kombat X fighters bring a whole extra level of visceral brutality when it comes to their attacks. It’s meant quite literally, with Leatherface’s chainsaw, Alien’s claw attacks, and Triborg’s metallic frame drawing blood on their strikes. Bo’ Rai Cho maintains his comedic “fat sad sack” fighting persona alive with vomit and fart-based gross-outs and punishing launches face first into the ground.
Those interested in the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack 2 should also note that Goro will also become available to those that don’t already have him. Additionally, Kold War, Brazil and Apocalypse skin packs will be tossed in as extras, including the Kold War Scorpion skin. There was no price announced, but considering NetherRealm was somehow able to justify a $30 price point for the first Kombat Pack to the game’s fans, expect the same treatment to come around once more.
