Ahh, Mortal Kombat. Fans of the series have been happily beating the pulp out of other fighters and racking up the gruesome fatalities since the series’ debut back in 1992. While the franchise has been on a four year hiatus–after 2011’s Mortal Kombat 9–the release of Mortal Kombat X is literally just around the korner [sic]. As we’re all ramping up to throw down once the new game hits shelves next week, we couldn’t think of a better time to release a brand new episode in our What You Missed By Not Playing series.
If you’ve yet to play Mortal Kombat 9–which we repeat came out in April of 2011 on the PS3, Xbox 360, PS Vita and PC–and you’re a fan of the franchise, first of all, what are you doing? The game’s been out for four years (FOUR YEARS) and it was fantastic. Second of all, Moral Kombat X is a direct sequel to this and is pretty story-centered so if you want to know what the heck is going on in it, you might want to brush up on the plot.
So, if you want to know how Shao Kahn was defeated and don’t have time to wade through the wikis or play the game itself, feast your eyes on the video above, where we 100% spoil everything.
Mortal Kombat X is set to release April 14, 2015 on the PS4, and Xbox One and will also see a June 2, 2015 release date on the PS3 and Xbox 360. For more on the newest entry in the MK series, make sure to check out the news we’ve been posting on Nerdist every week.
