Not a happy chap

It’s absolutely raining game reveals at the minute, with Mortal Kombat X the latest release to get the teaser trailer treatment. This two minute video clip confirms that the next entry in NetherRealm Studios’ gruesome fighting franchise is in production – and it’s due out next year on as of yet unspecified platforms. Judging by an overnight leak, it looks like it’ll be coming to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

The footage shows Sub Zero and Scorpion scrapping it out in a snowy forest environment. While the action is unlikely to be in-game, it does appear to have been designed to show off some of the sequel’s key features, such as the return of bone breaking super moves and also the environmental attacks from Injustice: Gods Among Us. To be honest, we’re not overly keen on the audio or the character designs, but it’s nice to see that the series hasn’t forgotten its goofy side. That fatality is utterly ridiculous.
