Ed Boon Knocks Fake Leaks & Teases More Mortal Kombat 11
Who teases the teasers?

Who teases the teasers? Ed Boon has taken a shot at rampant false reporting of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath leaks, while also teasing the prospect of something legitimate coming soon from the developer. Read on for the full story:

The NetherRealm Studios Creative Director used Twitter to take aim at a YouTube video that claims to confirm a previously rumored guest character. The clip features an excerpt from a live chat with Raiden voice actor Richard Epcar, who casually acknowledges the inclusion of Ash Williams at the suggestion of a fan. In a follow-up tweet, Boon explicitly ruled this out as one of the wrong ones.

Rumors of an Evil Dead crossover first began with datamining of the game and were fuelled by a chainsaw buzz in teasers. Iconic actor Bruce Campbell denied his involvement with Mortal Kombat 11 way back in May of last year, but relevant copyright matter continued to appear in official material, suggesting the character was planned as downloadable content at some point. If this was the case, Richard Epcar may have even recorded an announcer voice for it.

It seems clear there's more to the Evil Dead story, but it'll be some time before we know it. When asked about the crossover in July, Boon evasively told Vic's Basement host Victor Lucas: "Ah! I wish... There's one I wish I could comment on. Uh, yeah. You know what? Perhaps in a future Vic's Basement we can have a conversation like that."

Although not much more informative, Boon did offer something more enticing earlier in the day, suggesting a teaser of some kind could be coming soon.

The studio recently teased upcoming All Hallow's Eve Skins, which have been brought forward for a late September release. This could mean the hotly speculated future for Mortal Kombat 11 downloadable content is back on track. Ed Boon also recently polled fans on their preferred finishers. It remains to be seen if anyting will come of it.

Updated MK11 Aftermath Schedule Teases All Hallow's Eve Skins
Now coming September!

NetherRealm Studios has updated the Summer DLC schedule, bringing forward the next batch of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath skins to the end of September! Things are getting spooky, scary as boys become ice kings, and men become wolves. Check it out:

The All Hallow's Eve skin pack has been brought forward 11 days to be rescheduled for first access starting September 29th! The Halloween costumes will see D'Vorah becoming a creepy nurse, Sub-Zero become a frozen king, and Johnny Cage don his own letters as a teen wolf!

The new skins will be in addition to the recently released Femme Fatale Pack that brought back klassic skins, the vaguely American Independence Day themed Summer Heat Skins, and new Kombat League skins that includes D'Vorah style Kytinn skins for three other fighters.

The All Hallow's Eve designs draw inspiration from recent modern references, paying homage to characters from series like Game of Thrones and Teen Wolf. Last year's Masquerade Skin Pack outfitted Liu Kang, Kitana, and Kabal in more general classic horror designs.

Are the All Hallow's Eve skins tricks or treats? Share your review of the Halloweeny costumes in the comments below and go door to door with all the other topics you find in the Mortal Kombat 11 forum.

Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath Femme Fatale Skins Trailer
Klassic skins out now!

The hotly anticipated Femme Fatale Skin Pack is finally here! Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath gets a touch of klassic style in a trailer showcasing the latest downloadable content! Watch:

"Sole Survivor" Kitana, "Outworld Courtier" Jade and "Old Blood" Skarlet take inspiration from designs first included in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Although actually a creation for the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot, Skarlet looks right at home, fulfilling old school arcade rumors that helped to inspire her.

The trio joins this month's Summer Heat Skins in the DLC store, with an All Hallow's Eve pack still to come. The Femme Fatales are available now for Aftermath owners on most platforms, with a slight delay for Nintendo Switch until August 28th. Take a closer look in hi-res official renders supplied by Warner Bros below:


60.7% of MK Online users voted this the most anticipated Summer pack at the time of writing. What do you think of the palette swap throwbacks? Share your thoughts in the comments and check out more in the Mortal Kombat 11 and 2D Kombat Klassics forums!

Ed Boon Polls Fans on Mortal Kombat Finishers
Finish him! Again?

Mortal Kombat 11 is positively flush with finishing options after the addition of Friendships in May, but Ed Boon has polled fans on what they'd hypothetically like to see more of. The results proved surprising in a tight race between returning moves from games past. Read on:

It was almost too close to call right until the end, but come cut-off more than 13,800 Twitter users chose Animality as the finishing move they'd most like to see more of!

The metamorphosing moves have only been featured in versions of Mortal Kombat 3 (through Trilogy), making an obvious choice for fan preference, but they only managed a .2% majority over another single-game phenomenon. Self-inflicted Hara-Kiris were a quirk of competition in Mortal Kombat: Deception, and took second with 34.2% of the poll,

Recently restored Friendships were somewhat unsurprisingly the lowest selected option with 12.8%, while infantilizing Babalities, first introduced in MKII and last seen in Mortal Kombat (2011), earned a respectable 18.6%.

Interestingly, all of the poll options were referenced in a winking inside joke that uses Terminator's visual readout to poke fun at widespread pre-game leaks. The same gag included a list of 'Kombat Pack 2' characters with Mileena, Rain, and others.

Which type of finisher would you most like to see more of? Tell us how you think it could work in the comments below and find & discuss more in the Mortal Kombat 11 forum. Or debate the best in any category you can imagine by entering the Fan Koliseum!

Mod Koms: Fan Creates Mortal Kombat Fall Guys
Woo hoo! Flawless crossver!

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is the online multiplayer sensation taking the world by storm! Its squat mascot characters are ripe for novelty skins -- and one fan has taken it upon themselves to create the perfect Mortal Kombat crossover! Take a closer look:

Fall Guys combines the battle royale format with obstacle courses and mini-games. It's basically Takeshi's Castle meets Minions, resulting in a mean bean machine of rollicking playground fun that even offers a "Flawless Victory" achievement for players who survive a round without toppling over!

The playful nod to MK makes these Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 palette swap skins -- created by Twitter user Salsa -- a natural compliment to the cutesy carnage of competition.

Characters can choose two-tone color palettes and patterns unlocked in Fall Guys, but Salsa envisions a rainbow of Mortal Kombat characters inspired by the klassic design. From top to bottom, left to right, they are: Ermac, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Reptile, Rain, Noob Saibot, Smoke, Chameleon, and even Tremor!

It's not the first time we've seen someone suggest a mash-up between brutal kombat and kid friendly trends. This is right up there with MK Lego, MK Minecraft, and even the ultra convincing MK Fortnite designs created by Eric Tran!

Fall Guys has just added its first licensed tie-in skin to customization options: Portal 2's P-Body. Could a Mortal Kombat crossover actually eventuate?
