Been waiting to test your might again, my friends? Well, get those turbo controllers ready (cheaters), because Warner Bros. Interactive has announced an official release date for NetherRealm Studios’ next MK title, Mortal Kombat X. The game will be available worldwide for the Ps3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows PC on April 14, 2015. No word on whether or not friendships and babalities will be making a return in this version, so please refrain from making that inquiry at this time.
Along with today’s release date announcement comes the reveal of another Mortal Kombat series veteran who’s set to make a return: the four-armed, sandal-rocking sub boss known as Goro. You can bet that Cassie Cage will have a bone or two to pick him, just like her papa.
I’d imagine fighting this guy will be more difficult than it’s ever been, considering you have to use your dashing maneuvers more wisely with the addition of the “dash meter,” which only allows players to dash twice in succession before having to stop to let their meter replenish. Goro’s overhead stomp move is going to be a bitch-and-a-half to avoid with this new feature. That’s okay though, because whenever Goro frustrates me, I’ll always have this to make me feel better.
