Mortal Kombat X 'to be revealed today'

Co-creator Ed Boon tweets final teaser ahead of announcement

The tenth Mortal Kombat game is due to be announced today, according to series co-creator Ed Boon.

The reveal was initially teased by rapper Wiz Khalifa, who tweeted the following image:

This was backed up by Boon, who replied: "Yes you are Next @wizkhalifa !! On June 2nd Kombat Kontinues... #WHOSNEXT"

Today's likely reveal is the final part of a series of Mortal Kombat 10 teases by Boon, which he's been posting on Twitter for the past several weeks.


Early in May he initiated a mysterious countdown, stating that an unspecified announcement would be made in 29 days.

He followed this the next day by asking how many days there were in February, thereby continuing the countdown with 28, with a similar puzzle the next day.

Then, in mid-May, Boon tweeted a photo of the back of a car with the letters 'MKX' visible.

Earlier this year Kiefer Sutherland revealed that he had provided his voice to a forthcoming instalment in the long-running fighting franchise.

The last Mortal Kombat game rebooted the series when it released on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and PS Vita in 2011. In our review, we said: "It lacks the nuance and depth of Street Fighter, but by adding balance to its own familiar shtick and giving us the ace Tower mode MK has made itself a real alternative."
