True to the old saying: Mortal Kombat X is serving up something borrowed, something new, and a fan-favourite something blue. Music to the ears of fans at Brasil Games Show 2014 where Ed Boon and NetherRealm Studios are continuing to take the MKX message to the globe!

Speaking with Baixak Games; the series Co-Creator/Creative Director offered the tiniest of tantalizing new teasers about what's in store. Watch the full video below:

Finishing moves have been the talk since a new "-Ality" was first alluded to back at E3. While there's still no concrete information, an image emerges with each new discussion. Boon discussed the addition of an enhanced version of a classic fatality type, designed to take advantage of major progress in hardware and graphics engines. There will also be some form of tributes to classic finishers, as well.

Anecdotal accounts from live demos have players choosing from between 6-7 finishers, with Stage Fatalities given favourable odds back in June. Just as key special moves will be shared amongst Character Variations - Ed confirms each style will be able to access all fatalities.

Confronted with the ever contentious issue of Online Modes- Ed offered one of his most emphatic responses: "... Much more robust netcode in Mortal Kombat X!"

It isn't the first time improving online function has been talked up. The team will be taking lessons learned from Mortal Kombat (2011) & Injustice: Gods Among Us to make further improvements. This will be the first Mortal Kombat developed without GameSpy or GFWL, since their closures.

On the fond tradition of secret characters in Mortal Kombat - a drawn out, less than convincing "yes". While Mortal Kombat (2011) included unlockable fighters and skins, the secret aspect was not well served, utilizing a more forthcoming, perfunctory chase and unlock system.

While hidden secrets may have pleased die hard fans everywhere, the BGS host nation was given a little something else to look forward to. In acknowledging Brazil's rampant fandom -- (something Mortal Kombat Online can attest to) -- Ed discussed the possibility of incorporating a fighter or element that gives back to South American fans. Even more amazing - Ed gave local fan-favourite Sub-Zero a rare win in an either/or scenario against Scorpion!
