Mortal Kombat is famous for its no hold barred violence and it won’t come more violent than Mortal Kombat X when it lands next year. If you were thinking that NetherRealm Studios may tone down the level of violence compared to Mortal Kombat 9 – think again.
We have evidence to suggest that Mortal Kombat X is going to be even more brutal than the last game – if that was possible. We all saw the E3 trailer which unveiled parts of the Scorpion Mortal Kombat X fatality – although the last part was censored.
Now, we have the video to show you it in its entirety and it is really nasty. We’re not surprised at this point, although it is ridiculous in a sadistic kind of way when we wonder the thought process that NetherRealm goes through with each new game – deciding on how to make a fatality even more brutal than before.
Scorpion’s new fatality in Mortal Kombat X is really up there with the most violent we have seen. A fireball to the chest, followed by a swift blow to the head with his sword – the key factor being parts of the face sliding off with the tongue and brain still moving at the end.
If you love this kind of violence in Mortal Kombat, you are going to be delighted with the move we expect. For those that are a bit squeamish – you may want to look away.
What we wanted to know though is your opinions on whether you think Mortal Kombat X is more violent than Mortal Kombat 9 based on the fatalities that we have seen so far.
Take a look at Scorpion’s new fatality below, then compared it with arguably the nastiest fatality in MK9 from Noob Saibot and let us know which one you think wins the award for being the most violent.
Do you say keep it up to NetherRealm Studios or tone it down slightly?
