Warner Bros. and Nether Realm Studios have released Mortal Kombat X on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Developed by NetherRealm Studios, the game brings the legendary MK fighting gameplay experience to more players than ever before through mobile devices. The game will also release to Google Play shortly.
“NetherRealm perfected the art of mobile fighting games with Injustice: Gods Among Us, which has been downloaded more than 43 million times since it launched in April of 2013, and with WWE Immortals, which has more than eight million downloads since January 2015,” said Greg Ballard, Senior Vice President, Mobile, Social and Emerging Platforms, WBIE. “The team has outdone themselves with its latest offering, creating an authentic Mortal Kombat mobile experience from the ground up, bringing players all the signature, over-the-top fighting gameplay mechanics that are hallmarks of the franchise and delivering on WBIE’s quality games-as-a-service promise.”
The mobile version of MKX mixes fighting and card collecting for a new way to experience the MK franchise, now designed specifically for portable devices. Including more than 24 fighters, such as Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Kano and Raiden, and new fighters including Cassie Cage, D’Vorah and Kotal Kahn. Players will be able to collect upgradeable gear to buff up their fighters, as well as unlock finishing moves for even more dramatic, over-the-top Fatalities.
The game features daily events and online multi-player battles and will have additional Challenge Mode characters shortly. The new Allies feature allows players to “borrow” a friend’s character to aid them as a fourth fighter in their battles. When the console and PC versions of MKX launches next week, connectivity between platform versions will also go live. This ecosystem between platforms will feature team-based Faction Wars and let players unlock special content between the mobile game and console or PC versions of the game by completing tasks and achievements within each version.
