NetherRealm Studios veteran and former MKO correspondent Shaun Himmerick was in Las Vegas this past weekend for PlayStation Experience. The Sony event gave fans another chance to play 2015's Mortal Kombat X and ask their pre-release questions. MKOmmunity User BruskPoet reportedly took fan queries from the forums to Vegas, and has shared his knowledge with Mortal Kombat Online.

As in the Producer's interview with GameInformer, and the October character reveal trailer: Himmerick emphasizes the importance of Quan Chi's necromancer capabilities in MKX.
