Rumors of her existence have been swirling for months. Now Gameinformer has the exclusive reveal trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 newcomer: Cetrion! Watch the powerful new fighter unleash her vast powers right here:
They took victory in the World Cup - now Germany is gearing up to play host to the global phenomenon of Mortal Kombat X in August!
The September issue of GamePro Magazine (German Edition) features Scorpion on the cover with The Last of Us Remastered and Destiny inset [pictured right].
The issue holds special significance as a precursor to August 14-17 -- when NetherRealm Studios will be in the beautiful city of Cologne for Gamescom 2014!
The annual trade fair has become a favourite destination for the NetherRealm team, who've used it as a place to unveil new characters in their fighting game series. Raiden was revealed during July's Evo Championship. A new reveal is currently rumoured for Gamescom [full story].
If the cover is anything to go by, it looks like the Germans are going to love Mortal Kombat X! [Who'd have thought?]. GamePro touts a cover quote that (roughly translated) promises the scandalous fighter will set standards in more than just brutality! An important factor to consider in the notoriously strict German gaming market, where censorship laws always threaten a ban.
MKOmmunity User MKKosh claims the issue also reveals a new playable character. Mortal Kombat Online hopes to verify that claim before reporting. You can help by purchasing the new issue online, or on newsstands where available.
It's been a long time since Reptile compelled quarter stuffers to look moonward, or Smoke and Jade shared a private joke behind a talking tree, but the element of secrets hasn't left Mortal Kombat entirely. While other franchises begin to abandon the long practiced chase of unlockable characters, MK keeps one foot in the shadows, taunting a rabid fanbase all the way to the end date and beyond.
Yesterday, Mortal Kombat Online enjoyed a customary April Fools rib. The lure of DLC additions and discarded characters may be rooted in truth, but you weren't fooled so easily. For MK fans of the past, however, it hasn't always been so easy to discern truth from fiction.
For fans eager to squeeze a little more out of obscurity, characters like Tremor and Wu Lae remain a luring prospect. Even the likes of Hydro -- a water-themed Lin Kuei character, created by Malibu Comics -- have fought for renewed existence, getting as far as a cameo appearance in the final Mortal Kombat: Legacy [last year]. There is another class of character, however, who contributes to the MK mythology as much, without ever actually having existed -- the rumored, or prank character.
Last week it was revealed that the upcoming Mortal Kombat game would be making a featured appearance in Australia's Hyper magazine. Today we report on the material covered within this magazine. Though not much new is mentioned, the magazine contains several images featuring the likes of Sektor and Reptile as well as a high quality artwork of Raiden. In addition, there is a timeline of Mortal Kombat's history.
The official Mortal Kombat Facebook site updated with a few renders of characters from the upcoming Mortal Kombat game posing on the front of EGM and Hyper magazines. As noted earlier, Mortal Kombat was in the most recent issue of EGM and was featured on the cover. The Australian gaming magazine Hyper will be running a story for the game in their August 2010 issue. Scorpion appears on the cover, giving fans a larger glimpse of his look first seen on the select screen during E3.
