Codec Moments have long been fans of the Mortal Kombat series; from the dark days of arcade gaming, through the 8 and 16-bit eras and into the latest generation of consoles with Mortal Kombat X, from NetherRealm Studios. It sounds like it should be developed by Apple to sit alongside Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X on the App Store… Joking aside, Mortal Kombat X looks worthy of the professional title, with a story that spans 25 years following on from 2011’s Mortal Kombat and featuring variations on cherished characters, as well as newcomers to the arena.
The Next Trailer is an interesting behind the scenes video that discusses the new Faction War metagame, which the developers hope will help players of all skill levels really immerse themselves into the Mortal Kombat Universe.
The Who’s Next trailer shows a lot of the revealed characters in action and introduces new looks for Mortal Kombat II’s Kitana the Edenian princess, with her tradmark razor edged steel fans, and Kung Lao the powerful martial artist who performs more hat tricks than Sergio Aguero.

NetherRealm’s Executive Producer Shaun Himmerick presents an advertorial for Quan Chi, including a look at his Sorcerer, Warlock and Summoner variations.
Kano’s variations include Cut Throat, Cybernetic and Commando. Ed Boon introduces these variations in this video as he (Kano, not Ed) faces off against newcomer D’Vorah.
Everybody loves Raiden; he’s come a long way since MGS II (I know, please don’t write in). In MKX he comes as a Thunder God, a teleporting Displacer or a Storm Lord as Ed Boon explains.
Mortal Kombat X is slated for release this spring and if you pre-order at GAME you’ll receive Goro the Shokan as a playable combatant. That’s right, Goro lives! If that’s not enough for you, check out the details below of the limited Kollector’s Edition.
Mortal Kombat X releases on the 14th April for the PS4 and Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.
