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).
