As we await Mortal Kombat X perhaps the most sought-after characters are either "new" characters or returning characters that we haven't seen in years... specifically from Mortal Kombat 4. Mortal Kombat 4 introduced multiple characters to the franchise that many players fell in love with including Fujin, Reiko, Jerek, Tanya, Shinnok and more.

Well, to hopefully put a smile on your face, Shaun Himmerick did reply to a question asking if

How Mortal Kombat Turned My Life Around: A Thank You to the Community.

This is going to be very long. It's not something you need to read but it's something I need to say.

I didn’t get off to a great start in life. Despite coming from an upper middle class family it was a family with some very deep problems and I started a downward spiral around middle school. Something happened in my brain and I found myself unable to focus myself or socially interact like most people. I remember hating almost everyone, losing my ability to focus, and losing all sense of confidence in myself. When it started though there was no real “Oh shit, I need to snap out of this” moment in my brain and I never viewed this change as bad. I just thought “Well this is me”.​

Later in highschool I quit going, surrounded myself with people on the same track, and picked up a few habits. I spent the remainder of my teenage years sent away at “Fix my kid” programs and when I...​

Netherrealm Studios' Studio Head Shaun Himmerick has recently been answering a lot of the questions coming in on Twitter from other Twitter users and fans of the upcoming game Mortal Kombat X. Some of these questions, like the ones below, have been inquiries into which guest characters will be introduced in MKX. Although we know that the team at NRS can't reveal which characters will be in right now, they are able to tell us if some characters are out. With that being said, some people were curious to find out if the guest characters would be returning from a past MK or were characters from Netherrealm's 2013 DC Comics collaboration, the hit superhero fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us.

With Mortal Kombat X's release just two months away, one of TYM's beloved friends bids farewell to the previous installment in the series...with one last combo video for the Great Kung Lao.

After almost four years of his work, our enjoyment hasn't diminished for even a moment. In fact, with each video released by @ETC Mcfly, we're left with a greater thirst to see more.

Enjoy his last MK9 combo video, because you can best believe that it combines all aspects of his previous works with newfound concepts McFly has discovered even long after MK9's prime!

With a heavy heart, I must announce that Ghost Battle Series for Injustice:GAU has ended. I would like to personally thank everyone that ever was a part of our event and contributed to our scene in any way - from local players grinding match-ups, to commentating during streams, for chanting "JIM" during Flash combos, If you watched the stream and talked with us in the chat, if you were coming out and playing with us from out of town, and even if you were trolling/talking smack on Ghost Battle Series...
Thank you!
even soonk

To see new players with no prior fighting game experience make huge improvement, to seeing mid-level player make the leap and start to excel... it has been an honor to be a part of this. To see our top competitive players do so well nationally is just the icing...

For those of you who plan to download Mortal Kombat X when it releases on April 14th (for the US) you'll be happy to know that through the PlayStation store the game has "Pre-Load Support". What this means is you'll likely be able to open the game immediately at 12 midnight ET on Tuesday... which is awesome.

If you think about it, you'll likely be able to play before anyone else who is

I'm pretty sure there's no thread for this... so here you go. If you've pre-ordered one of those fancy editions then this is what you'll be getting. Earlier today, NetherRealm Studio's producer, Shaun Himmerick gave some detail as to what we can expect in the "Kombat Pack", which several variations of the game (limited, kollector's, etc) include.

He also states that they will have packed out the game disc with as much content

At the request of @STORMS, I've made faction banners for all you Testers of Might!

They take up the same slot as the variation banners, so if you'd like to wear one of them for your faction, you can put them on in the same way as the other mood banners. For those of you that don't know how: Find your avatar beside the reply box and click on the invisible button under your avy. You can also do this from any other post you've made on the forums.

In addition, Kitana's variation banners are now available: __ __ [​IMG] __ [​IMG]

Note: Please excuse the lack of a third Black Dragon banner. If any of you can find a good section of the Black...

By now, it's a pretty well-known thing that Major League Baseball star Hunter Pence of the San Francisco Giants is a pretty damn big NetherRealm Studios fan. He plays Green Arrow in Injustice and now we find that his favorite character is Kabal in Mortal Kombat. He was recently invoted along with KindaFunnyGames to play Mortal Kombat X.

In this video, Hunter Pence gives his thoughts on all aspects of the game that have been announced so far, including

I know it has been a while, but as some of you may remember, my awesome RM team battled it out in a sixteen-man bracket that yielded only the greatest of matches for us to witness. This morning, I have compiled and released a playlist with the footage from that event. Each video is contained in a spoiler box that will be labeled appropriately.

A couple of notes I want to make:

Kitana: You have something to say?
Cassie Cage: You are down in one hit.
Kitana: A prediction that will prove false.

I'm def. in love with her new sassy personality! I can't wait for April anymore! http://www.playstationtrophies.org got their hands on MKX, Reptile and Ermac were sadly absent from the built they tried, which gave them more time to try Kung Lao and Kitana!

A couple of days ago on Twitter an enquiring fan asked Netherrealm Studios' Studio Head and Executive Producer for Mortal Kombat X Shaun Himmerick about the number of costumes we'd see in NRS's upcoming iteration of Mortal Kombat. As you can see in the below picture, Shaun answered Twitter user mk10news's question and in turn narrowed the exact number down to a specific range.

UPDATE (2/10/15): Confirmed fake by Ed Boon.

An achievement list for Mortal Kombat X has recently surfaced. As I read down through the achievements, there are a few slight spoilers for in-game content but nothing that relates to any characters. There are also no images to go with this achievements list, so take it as you will.

Many of these tasks seem legit as they involve the Living Towers, fighting with variations, etc but we cannot confirm that any of these are official. As you read below

As we've known for some time now that NetherRealm Studios is focusing all of their efforts towards the next-gen technology by developing Mortal Kombat X for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Considering the game is also coming out for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, this raised some concerns as far as "who is developing the other versions then?" and "should we be worried?".

It is being reported (and I can't remember if this was already known or not) that the same developers who ported Injustice: Gods Among Us to Playstation 4 and PC, "High Voltage", are also

Hey guys!

This thread is to let everybody know that @PND_Mustard and I are going in hard with the Mortal Kombat X coverage, this will start pre release and continue post launch. We want to cover this game as much as we can from our own personal perspective, and try to expand on that the more we learn about the game via announcements and character reveals.

To kick this off, we have done our own analysis of the Ermac reveal and gameplay. Hope you guys enjoy it!

Can't believe no one is super hype about this on here (or maybe you haven't noticed?).
Take a look at 2:30, left side of the screen in the latest "Mortal Kombat X: Next" trailer - Achievement for BRUTALITY!
