Speculation: Will the Dead Rise in Mortal Kombat X?

The unveiling of Mortal Kombat X at this year's E3 revealed key details about its basic premise and new character line-up. We know the story takes place over a twenty-five year span - jumping forward from the aftermath of Mortal Kombat (2011), to the far flung future of a new generation.

MK2011 left many of the franchise icons deceased and under the control of Netherrealm necromancer: Quan Chi. We know to expect one or two grizzled veterans fighting into the future, but in an interview with vgBR.com, Art Director Steve Beran made one of the few direct connections between fan-favourite returns and the dead fighters.

The promise of "a tonne of new characters" -- the most of any new installment -- gave the character dead pool its greatest likelihood of staying full, but Mortal Kombat has a history of scoffing at the finality of death.

Creative Director Ed Boon teased many roster elements over the course of E3. While new additions like D'Vorah & Ferra/Torr have dominated initial demos -- Boon offers consistent guarantees there will be returning favourites. The game will include an MK4 character and cameos by various fighters from the past 20 years in a robust new story mode [full story]. In discussing gameplay mechanics, the game lead has also made allusions to Johnny Cage, Sonya Blade & Raiden.

Last month; Mortal Kombat Online listed the Top 10 Characters Read to Kontinue from the last game. By and large we avoided the dead. Could the likes of Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Princess Kitana & more be primed for a resurrection?

Mortal Kombat X will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 & PC. Fans in Brazil should keep a look out for PlayStation Magazine, which contains a Scorpion poster.

Why is D'vorah so badass? I love her so much.

Also, thanks for the video.

Aw yeah, new MK!

Hopefully the fan favorites aren't limited to the usual icons.

Yeah, they've kinda described her like that in different interviews. I do wonder if she is a unique case or if there's a whole race like her.

Wasp like? I could tell from the start. I got a Q-Bee feel from her first time I saw her. Fingers crossed for Kung Lao and Kitana.

Having a whole race like her will dumb her down a bit and make her seem less original unless each of the creatures are significantly different.

I don't agree with that. Goro, Motaro, Moloch, Noob, Nitara and Baraka are each just one of many, but they seem pretty original in each their way.

Well except for Goro, who proves my point because he has two other characters similar to him, (Sheeva and Kintaro) all of the other charcters you listed here are good examples of the point you're making.

I'm just saying that it can only work if there aren't any more characters like her in the game and the whole race thing is a back story. We don't need another Sub-Zero/Frost or Ermac/Kenshi situation.

While those characters are completely different story wise, they are very similar gameplay wise.

That we agree on. She is enough to represent her race, unless another is introduced and is vastly different from D'Vorah's playstyle.

And I mentioned Goro, because he was the first original Shokan in the games. It is Kintaro and Sheeva who are unoriginal.

I set next to him on a long flight from Germany to Chicago. He's a great guy. He even took notes from a Arena I suggested and told me if it was included in there next MK game he would send me a copy of the game. This was 2013.

The Arena was a Blood Swamp with intractable's and 3 possible Stage Fatalities. He may have been just been humoring me. but he took it. I posted details about the Arena in a post years ago.

He's a great guy but he's obviously such a nervous public speaker. It's adorable.

I don't think she is officially half human half wasp as her race. I think he just said that to give a basic description of what she looks like.

RE: More details about story, Dvorah specie and dead chars returning.

I read somewhere that in one of Ed's interviews, he described D'Vorah as a member of an Outworld race that stayed in hiding until Kahn died to avoid him, much like Nitara and the vampires...but I can't confirm that claim as it's not in any of the E3 videos I've seen firsthand.

I really hope D'vorah is unique, and not another race like Shokans, Tarkatans and Centaurs.

RE: More details about story, Dvorah specie and dead chars returning.

I knew (a lot of us knew) there would be dead characters comming back in this game. Happy about this, Kuai Liang wasn't the only one I wanted to play as from those dead guys. I want to be able to play as Kung Lao too for example. And Sindel was among my favorites too though I think she doesn't have as many chances as Kung Lao given the low usage.

Kung Lao and Kitana could make very logical choices if Liu Kang turns mad as they could be the last hope to try to bring some sanity to him or ultimately try to defeat him. They were also among the most used characters and Ed Boon said something about making the most used characters return if I recall correctly.
