gamescom 2014: Mortal Kombat X to Reintroduce an Old Fatality Type, No Mortal Kombat Vs. Street Fighter Planned

August 16, 2014Written by Zarmena Khan


Ed Boon certainly loves teasing. Just last week, he said that there will be a “new-ality” that we’ll get to hear of soon. Now, he’s revealed that the upcoming title Mortal Kombat X will bring back one long-missing type of fatality (or just an ‘ality’) from the older games. Speaking to IGN he said:

For those who are familiar with the Mortal Kombat, we’ve first had the Fatality and we added a Babality. We had the Friendship moves, Brutality moves and all of these crazy things over the years. We are going to be reinstating an ‘Ality’ from a previous game into Mortal Kombat X. And I can’t wait to be able to talk about it but at the moment I can’t.

Oh boy! Can’t wait to see what it is.

In the same interview, Boon also confirmed that there currently isn’t a Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter game in the works, and he didn’t seem too hopeful about the possibility of one in the near future either.

There’s a nostalgia side of me that would love to see a Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter, if we were allowed to make an M-rated game. There’s a novelty to that. But the chances of that happening are pretty low. It is a possibility but not a probability.

Mortal Kombat X is scheduled for release in 2015. Boon has said that we’ll get a release date in the coming weeks.
