Although the illustrious Ed Boon previously teased that new fighters for Mortal Kombat X would be revealed on 29th January, it seems that NetherRealm Studios couldn't wait, as an exclusive IGN video has confirmed that Reptile will be joining the roster.

After a hilarious, short spat between Kung Lao and his scaly adversary, we get a look at his more fitting redesign with a bone-laden vest. Several of his iconic moves are making a komeback as well, such as being able to spit acid on the ground and briefly turn invisible. After the battle, it concludes with a predictably gory Fatality that we recommend sticking around for – or not, if melted faces aren't your thing.

What do you think of Reptile? Will you be sure to play as him in Mortal Kombat X, or does this green fighter's appearance burn your eyes? Slither down to the comments section below to let us know your thoughts.
