Mortal Kombat X revealed
The next Mortal Kombat's existence was leaked online via Amazon listings, but has now been confirmed...
The next instalment in the Mortal Kombat series, which enjoyed something of a revival with the excellent 2011 release, is heading back to our screens in the form of Mortal Kombat X.
Initially, the game was discovered via an Amazon listing (via MP1st) containing references to Mortal Kombat X on multiple platforms, including Xbox One and PS4. Shortly afterwards, Netherrealm's Ed Boon confirmed that the game did, indeed, exist.
The name of the game is "Mortal Kombat X"

Apart from the name, no details were provided, but an official trailer was then released, which you can see below. It's clearly a CG-only affair, but it shows off new looks for both Scorpion and Sub Zero, along with many of the signature moves and abilities each long-serving combatant possesses.
Mortal Kombat X will be released on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC sometime in 2015.
