E3 2014: Gamespot Interviews MKX Lead Designer

Mortal Kombat X has been a feature of this year's E3! Everybody wants to talk MKX and Gamespot found NetherRealm Lead Designer John Edwards to talk a little about his role, the new characters & the new game!

With his hands deep in the game mechanic creation process, Edwards talks about the teams' goal to maintain core trademark elements whilst developing the new game. Balancing and incorporating new characters is clearly a priority for NetherRealm as they follow-up their massive tournament breakthrough with Mortal Kombat (2011).

Gamespot are set to feature Mortal Kombat X again in a live demonstration today (June 12). The live stream is currently scheduled for 11:40am (PDT).

Interview with the Lead Designer of Mortal Kombat…: http://youtu.be/c8DtMDKnXW4

The hottie asks him about more returning characters.. "oh yes, lots more!" Was his answer. So I guess it's not a complete overhaul like some of the MKO has been speculating

That was interesting, definitely trying to reassure fans at this early stage there'll be returning favorites and a good balance. Was pleased to hear!!

Happy to hear the confirmation of older characters! That was my biggest worry so far.

RE: John Edwards - Lead deisgner interview

Not gona lie, I was very very worried until I heard that. I Love the few newbies they've shown already, but hopefully they're aren't too many more. Crossing my fingers for an Arch-AngeL, Tremor, and Khrome. LoL. 8 newbies is a safe number, any more is "Krazy with a K"

Agreed. more than 8 is too many.

I'd like 3 more males and at least one more female.

Khrome? A miscolored Smoke statue? Why...


I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.

Open your mind dude, he wouldn't just be "smoke with metal hands" lol. He'd be his own character with Liquid metal moves, and next gen graphix. Imagine the possibilities.

As for another new female fighter, sadly I disagree. We have 3 new ones so far. I'm so in love with the old ones! LoL, I can't let go.

MK6 had 10 newbies if I recall correctly, and Boon said he "thinks" MKX will have the most newbies. Krazy!

RE: John Edwards - Lead designer interview

To b honest, I really don't think it would seem like an obsession if the khrome-haters wouldn't BAIT the khrome-lovers into debating the inclusion. I actually stopped coming to this site during MK9 becuz I felt like I had to stand trial everytime I rooted for Tremor to be DLC.

But back on topic, John Edwards also mentioned they wana hit every archetype in MKX. Do u think we'll get even more brutes than Torr and KotaL?

Let's just make this clear then...

Khrome is NOT an established character. He/She/It doesn't exist in the Mortal Kombat Universe. It is nothing more than a fan concept based on a miscoloured Smoke statuette.

And now we move away from this conversation and focus on the main topic at hand. Thank you.

(Why the skull?)

Just so you know, I marked the Skull as unfair.

Warrior is hanky. And hanky is secretly Khrome.

Maybe one day I'll probably make more of an impact than you'll ever fake. Sign the official petition for an MK LORE ENCYCLOPEDIA: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/553/418/526/mk-fans-unite-we-want-an-mk-lore-encyclopedia/?taf_id=13672050&cid=fb_na#

I'm kinda surprised people were under the impression we'd get no returning characters or a very small amount of returning characters. Right after Ed said from MK9 to 25 years onwards should've been the tip off.

But he also said it doesn't take place immediately after MK9 but we do see what happens. But in general I've learned to not take things Ed says as gospel.
