Jax and The Subway Confirmed on GameTrailers TV!

10/29/2010 :: Posted at 01:27 AM by ~Crow~
Awwww Yeah!

GameTrailers TV with Geoff Keighley has confirmed Jax as well as The Subway for the upcoming Mortal Kombat! The show premiered early Friday morning and featured the usual gameplay montage present with press events, only this one featured several minutes of gameplay with Jax.

Jax is a grapple heavy character who seems to have a large amount of grabs and throws. Classic moves featured included his ground pound and a version of the gotcha grab. His X-Ray move was also showcased in which he performs a double backbreaker. Jax's win pose is most impressive as he reveals an American flag and cloaks himself in it. Appearance wise, he seems to be sporting an attire combination from MK2 and MK3, with metal arms with a machine gun strapped to his back as we saw in MK:DA. He looks much more rugged and less sleek, as he was in his debut back in MK2. Though a fatality was not shown, Ed Boon revealed that Jax had a combination of his MK2 fatalities as one, ripping off the arms of his opponent and clapping his hands to decapitate them.

The Subway is a returning stage from Mortal Kombat 3. It looks much the same as it did in its 3D appearances, but the stage fatality has been updated to feature two trains instead of one. The victim is held in front of an oncoming train as the upper body is pounded before being thrown across the arena to be hit by another oncoming train, completing the stage fatality.

Other details include less certainty about the final number of characters. Ed revealed it remains "in the 20s" but the old number of 26 may no longer be up to date, as there may end up being less or more than originally planned (he also noted the character list was, in fact, not finalized as previously reported). Once again however, he hinted at the strong presence of DLC. Ed also took the time to answer a few commonly asked questions. Tag Team fatalities are a possibility, but only if time allows for them. Mini-games were also mentioned but he did not comment on specifics.Steve Beran was also interviewed about concept design for the characters, in which a large number of concepts for Scorpion's ninja suit were shown. Finally, the classic Spine Rip fatality by Sub-Zero was also shown.

If you missed the show, it is now online at GTTV's website. Click here to watch it!
